“Lunch in Meadowhall”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Atmosphere OK for a good family chat, but the food was dire - chicken tagine was a lump of lumpy couscous with a bit of chicken served with some onion and loads of tomato sauce - just the sort of thing I used to cook years ago when I was a student and pushed for cash. No spices or anything to liven it up - and not cheap for what it was and no tagine dish to allow the imagination a little play. Apparently the vegetarian options were better, but the service was of the kind 'that's what it says on the menu so that's what you can have'.

“Variable”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

On a good day Cafe Rouge (not just this one but others elsewhere) can be very pleasant, but sadly they are not consistent in our experience and we have had some disappointing meals. The new menu is not as good as the old one - some of our favourites have gone.

“A quick lunch”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Called in for a quick lunch before a long journey home. I think Cafe Rouge is one of the best chains you can eat in. I only wanted a light meal so had a simple cheese omelette, just fine. The service was good and cheerful

“Family friendly”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Visited here with two small kids and was made to feel most welcome. Plenty of things were provided to keep them entertained and the staff were patient and helpful. The food is good if not particularly memorable, although the rib eye steak was very tasty. You wouldn't come here for fine dining but if you want a decent meal for the family, this is a good choice.

“Decent fair restricted menu”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Food here is ok to good but the menu seems to rarely change as such not for regular visits. Steak was dry so order a sauce chicken tagine ok just needs a bit more spice.
