“Well Prepared for Large Parties”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We went to this restaurant for our Christmas meal and I was very pleasantly surprised. We had to choose from a menu beforehand but this was no problem. There were the usual Christmas options but also some unusual choices for a Christmas menu. The staff were friendly and efficient and we were served hot food (quite unusual in my expereience for a large party) which was of a good standard. Crackers, mince pies and complementary mulled wine were all included in the very reasonable price. All in all a good night out. The only slight criticism I would have was that the prices of the drinks were quite inflated but I guess that it only to be expected, The team were also nice enough to send photos that they had taken of our group on the night.

“A simply great place to eat!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Cafe Rouge has got to be one of the best places to eat in Maidstone. Although always busy it is a pleasure to eat here. The staff are very pleasant and attentive but not intrusive. The food is simply delicious whether you go to breakfast, lunch or dinner. A great atmosphere and fun for all the family too. Never had a bad experience.

“A very bland experience”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

A solid 4/10 - the food was very average, lacked any flavour and felt pre-prepared. The whole experience was just bland.

“Second visit was worth it”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

This was the second visit and it was much better than the first, the food was excellent. We had Bouillibase which was superb, a chocolate tarte which again was great, the Tarte Tartin was good if a a little sweet and my other half had a cappuccino which he said was one of the best ever. The service was much improved from our first visit which to be fair was my main gripe. This is a nice place to eat so go if you can.
