Went here for a birthday meal with my mum and husband. Lunch time staff were friendly and efficient. Meals for below par, nun and I shared a 24oz steak, you get a choice of two side and sauces, but the sides are one portion only it would be better if you could get two sides each and you get two...

I visited this restaurant last week, have been for a very long time. My daughter ordered steak which was tough and grey which was returned for another, still not great. Hamburger had a burnt taste. I remember maybe 10 years ago I loved Cafe Rouge the food was very good and inexpensive. Needs an overhaul

Great choice of food, lovely atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. Also accept gourmet card discount which made it even more good value for the lovely meal we had.

We are sorry to learn even though you tried to book in advance the table you requested was not available on your chosen day. I am unable to provide a more detailed response as I am not based in the restaurant so unable to give a reason, other than to say the requested space possibly had already been booked by... More

I've been to several In the chain over the years and this is as good as any. Good if you want something nicer than a coffee bar chain when you're in Epsom. Service friendly and efficient but although they strive to accentuate the French feel, they fall down a little on the taste of the food ( not enough stock)... More

We sat outside on a lovely evening and took full advantage of their half-priced wine offer! When we sat down we ordered 'the Camembert' assuming they would realise we meant a sharing platter, but the single-person starter arrived instead. We ate the starter and went to complain about it being too small for a sharing platter, but on realising the... More

Smallish restaurant. Part of chain but a reasonable restaurant non the less. Staff are quite friendly and polite. Food is good but not outstanding. Service can be a bit slow at times especially waiting for the bill. Seating both inside and outside. Reasonable for snack or quick meal.

Lovely staff and some very nice dishes, with flexibility shown by the staff for a little bit of mix and match, without too much faffing. It does try its best to look French and is charming. It can be dark, so is probably more romantic than family but yet families will still enjoy it, and there's something on the menu... More

Cafe Rouge Epsom has been designed with beauty as the focus, as you enter the bistro to the left hand side there is an impressive illuminated vintage perfume bottle display.

Next to the bar we offer a very intimate space in the window with a stunning decorative pendant above; and for those really special moments our restaurant features two 'love benches' to share a meal with that someone special.

Join us now and experience the best bistro in town.
