Description: We've got a fantastic new food and wine menu filled with delicious innovative takes on the classics and dishes inspired by different regions of France. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! Perfect if you're out and about shopping at the nearby centre: MK, one of the many retail parks or in town to watch the football. Ideally located right at the centre of the thriving Hub, this impressive Café Rouge overlooks the open air, pedestrian only Piazza and is just 10 minutes walk from Milton Keynes Central train station with convenient road links.

Visited in a group for a birthday dinner & we selected the set Xmas menu - rather restricting to have to order all 3 courses in advance (you can usually select deserts on the day!)

My starters of onion / goats cheese tart was divine but my turkey main was quite bland and nothing special at all (it all appeared to be hit & miss with the food we all ordered, with some dishes being very good & others quite plain) - the deserts were generally good though and the wine list quite varied.

Service was good on the day but prior to arriving (when sorting out menus etc, there were lots of mix-ups & confusion and the (Russian?) lady that was dealing with it all was quite abrupt and unfriendly - even when it was she who'd made the error!!) Wouldn't have continued with the booking had it not been December, with limited alternative restaurants free for a large group, but overall an okay experience, saved in part, by the food/value.

Went on Saturday lunchtime as it was my birthday, and because of the weather we decided not to venture out of an evening. Booked the table, arrived and very few tables occupied. Waited at least 20 minutes for the waitress to come across, and give us our menu's and ask if we wanted a drink. The meal was lack lustre, soup slightly warm. No side dish for the lemon sole spine. Waitresses totally uninterested. Not a very good birthday lunch. Will not go there again.

We're always a fan of Cafe Rouge, enjoying the mussels and saucy chicken dishes. My family have sampled a few branches, but following two visits to the Hub in MK, we haven't been wowed by the service. This branch seemed to lack serving staff. The staff were great, but there weren't enough to wait on the number of customers seated. We found ourselves sat waiting for orders to be taken and dishes to be cleared between courses.
