I had bruchetto Tomatoes. It was delicious. The best I have ever tasted. Have been going to Rue for 14 years and and have enjoyed everything I eat.

8 friends lunched at Cafe Rue today and we were all thrilled with the meals we were served. I had the Smashed Avocado and it was loaded with avocado slices. Some had the Pork Fillet which was tender and tasty. Great value and recommend to...More

Best fish and chips on the island. Great service, beautifully served. Elevates "fish and chips" to a new level. Rest of lunch menu looked delicious as well, wish we could have returned for another meal!

Great meal. Great service. Great atmosphere, and Emersons on tap! Beef Wellington and Lemon Brulee to die for. A really great restaurant, in the city centre.

The service was very good but very disappointed in our meal! The steak was tuff and we couldn't finish it.

Went with a big group without a booking and it wasn't a problem for them. Really yummy food for brunch and it looks like it would be great for an evening visit.

Wandered around till we spied this place . Highly recommend Cafe Rue on Moray Place for such an interesting menu and attentive staff. We had jalapeño bread, pork and orawn main and rice bomb dishes. The sauces were divine and food beautifully cooked and presented
