I go regularly to this restaurant but was disappointed last night, when my husband and I took an eighty year old friend for a birthday meal. She has particular food tastes, as many elderly people have, but nothing she wanted was available. Although it was only 7.30pm, we were told the lamb was off the menu and her favourite cherry crumble had also been deleted.
While she did not complain at all, we both felt we had let her down. The manageress was cheerful and hard working but we felt it was far too early in the evening for the items to no longer be included on the menu.

Could not have tried more to please the difficult needs of both an elderly and a very young member of the party. Food was excellent, especially my Lemon Sole. Service was slow but they apologised before being asked and explained the particular difficulty they had that day. Respectfully friendly! One of the best Cafe Rouge's that I have visited.

Very disappointing lunch time visit on Saturday. Tepid, rather odd tasting soup and the selection of dishes we shared looked like they'd been sitting out in the kitchen for a few days, just as well I couldn't bring myself to eat them as the pitiful quantity of each was hardly sufficient for one. Despite being a special Comic Relief day with activities for children the place was quiet with a lack of families, very unusual for Dulwich Village. We are regular visitors to other branches of this, usually, reliable chain but we certainly won't be returning to this one.

Wonderful service, our waitress was extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble and was she very helpful and kind towards the younger members of our group. The food was really good, and we werent rushed between courses. Would definately go to this branch again.

Similarly to other pundits, we went there to use the vouchers. In short, the waiter was terrible, the food was bland and the atmosphere was non existent.

There's a pizza express and a Roca within metres and they are infinitely better in all aspects.
