A friend had booked a table for us to eat on our first night in Edinburgh. It was a Friday night before a rugby weekend and we expected the restaurant to be busy. It was less than half full and there was no need to have pre booked. The service was very average and the highlight of the meal was the starter of French Onion soup The steak was very average and just about warm, the chips reminded me of McDonalds!- say no more.

The price was more than expected and will avoid on next trip.

We popped in for a quick lunch today before an appointment nearby. When we were greeted, a grumpy young girl pointed at several table options without really speaking to us, and then walked to another waiter and quite clearly gestured at us pulling horrible faces. Great...

Luckily another waitress then brought us menus and took our drinks order. This girl was very sweet and helpful throughout service, although we did have to ask to order and for the bill. To be fair to her there were a few other tables in her section and we were tucked away in a corner so no real issue.

Food was ok, caesar salad didn't have a huge amount of flavour but hubby was very enamoured with his steak baguette.

I've been to many Cafe Rouges over the past 15 years or so and I would say this one isn't up to the normal standard.

We were seated quickly and with a friendly welcome.
Service was quick and our meals arrived in good time.
Very tasty Croque Monsieur and fries.
Couldn't fault it. Fairly busy but retained a nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely return. Good value.

We had breakfast here a couple of times during a short trip to Edinburgh using Clubcard vouchers to pay for our food and cash for the tea/coffee. The breakfast menu is tasty and filling and the service is superb. I can heartily recommend the eggs benedict or the salmon benedict, both were filling and tasty. Superb value if you use the vouchers.
