Book this restaurant last Wednesday. Had my doubts as have eaten in a cafe Rouge before &I was very disappointing. As that was years ago, we decided to give it another go. Food was very average. Hard to find more than one snail in our starter. The steak to share was full of fat & not at all enjoyable. Staff... More

We visited here first on a mid week afternoon, reasonably quiet but very good food & the service from the young girl was exemplary. We returned with our family on a sunny busy Sunday and had equally good food and service above and beyond what you would expect from a chain. Our waiter was Ivan and he was not only... More

We had travelled for an hour and were starving having had no breakfast. We sat outside in glorious sun and ordered three English breakfast and smoked salmon on scrambled , which they did on gluten free toast with no problems. It came quickly and very efficiently and was one of the nicest breakfasts we've had. Well worth the journey..

Just had a lovely meal at the marina. Food was great, beautiful location and weather. Our waiter Ivan was superb. Throughout the meal he was attentive and courteous and the service was fantastic. My daughter managed to throw scalding prawns on her bare leg and Ivan was so helpful getting ice and cloths. Thank you for everything.

Considering the new competition just opened in the marina this place needs to step up its game. Not busy at all on a Saturday night yet service was so slow I nearly went to the bar and served myself! 40 minutes to wait for a beer because they were changing a barrel. Food was good and tasty but took far... More

after a day hanging around in the local hospital for various reasons, we de-camped to the Marina to visit somewhere we have not been for some while. We arrived mid afternoon and unusually, possibly because of lots of new eateries having recently opened in the new development, could choose to sit inside or out; so we sat inside but in... More

Nice family meal after a very busy day. Very helpful and patient waitress, helped us decide! We asked for the air conditioning to be switched down as it was blowing cool and felt just a bit too much, she came back within 2 mins and said Yes of course we have turned it right down for you, this made our...

A nice spot for a relaxing lunch watching the yachts. There are many restaurants along the Boardwalk, but it is Cafe Rouge that we keep returning to the most. It is a great place to sit outside on a sunny day. The staff are really great. We will be back.

I should have written about this earlier. Had early evening dinner on 24th July and I must say it was lovely. Cafe Rouge keep sending offers which I don't really take much notice of. I used this one and received 30% discount which was amazing value. Great starter, the large shared Camembert and duck (bit over cooked if I'm honest)... More
