5 of us went in there for an early evening dinner. Waiter was attentive, drinks came quickly and food was nice and hot and no complaints from any of the others. It was quite empty and we were sat within touching distance of another couple but they didn't seem to bothered of our noise. All in all a good visit.... More

I really like the food in cafe rouge. I get tired of restaurants offering just the same old Italian pasta and pizza dishes, so it's nice to have some good meat with veg and mash and really great sauces. The drinks are also nice, as are the desserts! The only thing I'd say is that the atmosphere isn't AMAZING -... More

I often eat in Cafe Rouge on my travels and have recommended it many times so I'm hoping the unenthusiastic waiter was a one-off. When asked if he could leave off the two eggs and give an extra slice of bacon instead told me he couldn't offer a meat product in place of a non-meat product but maybe it was... More

We were gifted a 3 course meal with wine by a friend for Christmas as they know how much we love Cafe Rouge. The choice is slightly reduced from the main menu but this did not stop us enjoying our 3 courses with a glass of prosecco.

We have visited many times over the years we have lived in Brighton and both the food and the service has been consistently good, and although not cheap, is fair for the quality. Although they have in the past struggled with service sometimes when they've run special offers - some of which are very good - it hasn't stopped us... More

Popped in here for an early lunch on Sunday. Found the atmosphere to be pleasant and service relatively swift. Chose the cheese plate, which came with a good selection of cheeses along with grapes, figs and celery - very enjoyable!

The civilized clientel kept the background noise to a sensible level, attentive but not intrusive staff were friendly and efficient - excellent food; one of our party was a vegetarian and had a good choice of courses, the steaks were cooked to perfection, all accompanied by a reasonably priced merlot!

Have used Cafe Rouge on many occasions, and it has always been good eating, but the menu has changed! Ordered some escargot, they arrived in three tiny pans, not the half dozen shells I was expecting. The old joke of how did you find your steak, I moved a chip and there it was came to mind. How did you... More

I have been eating in Café Rouge for 11 years now and always enjoy the food there. They have more recently catered more for dietry requirements which is a great help to me as I am gluten dairy free. Their offers are good currently enjoying 50% off when you order a main course until 10th February. with my friend. Also... More
