Description: Located in picturesque Strand-on-the-Green, with plenty of outside seating to take advantage of the views of Kew Bridge and the Thames, Cafe Rouge Kew Bridge is a stunning place to eat. To suit such a beautiful location - we have a beautiful menu! Filled with delicious innovative takes on the classics and dishes inspired by different regions of France. Slightly east of the restaurant, Strand-on-the-Green becomes a footpath that runs downstream alongside the river, joining up to Thames Road on the other side. Roughly in the middle of this section of footpath, in the River Thames, is the heavily wooded Oliver's Island. In the 18th century, a tollbooth was built on the island and charges were made to barges and other craft to allow them to pass.

“Relaxed and informal”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

If you want to go to a pleasant location in a relaxed and informal setting, the Cafe Rouge at Kew is really pretty good. The waiting staff are cheerful and polite and the food is always up to standard - never any unpleasant surprises here. The twee folk that frequent the restaurant almost give it an authentic French air!
Always go along with a voucher as this ensures exceptional value for money.

“Superb Location”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I ate here with my gorgeous friend and we had a lovely time. We sat outside and just near the Thames and immediately as soon as we walked through in to the Café Rouge roped off area we were approached by staff in a warm, welcoming and friendly manner.

Service was quick and the food was nice and my friend enjoyed hers and then we had coffee afterwards and then had a lovely walk along the Thames.

The food was nice but the portions were small but I understand that as it is the middle of London and this didn't phase me too much as my friend and I had a wonderful time, in a nice warm and friendly place, with professional service in a superb location.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone stopping or passing through for a bite to eat and it is also a really great place to meet up with friends because of the location.

will be back in the future :)

“Always reliable”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Always like it here. Service is good and food always reliably tasty. It was such a beautiful evening we were able to sit outside overlooking the Thames at 10.30pm (remember the summer of 2013?). Highly recommended

“Beautiful location with good service but menu definitely needs freshening up”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

The location of this restaurant is truely lovely, u can have a nice meal then go for a stroll along the Thames after to work it off. Nabbing a seat on the terrace overlooking the river is fantastic!! The food is pretty average & could definitely be updated to be made fresher & have more flavours put in it. Staff are polite & attentive.

“It has lost its edge a little with the change of menu and staff”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We invariably eat here when we visit the area, 3/4 times a year. We had a table booked for Saturday night and the place was buzzing. I am not impressed by the "Summer" menu and the prices have increased. The staff seem to be more Eastern European than French and it has lost its je ne sais quoi. However, the service was not al that extended by the full house and the Tesco vouchers help.
