Went here for breakfast, and wasn't impressed by anything at all. My friends ordered the pastry basket - it was all hard and inedible & barely contained anything to justify the £5 price tag. I ordered the french toast which was full of fresh fruit but lacked any flavour at all. The coffees were weak & the fried breakfast was lacking in flavour.

The only reason I didn't rate this as terrible, the waitress 'poked' the pastry after we complained and agreed it was too hard to be edible and gave us a refund for it.

Went on Friday night and was disappointed with the standard of food overall. Some bits good , others dreadful. Steer clear of the aubergine gratin. - cold in the middle so one would expect it has been a microwave job!! Fish stew lacking in flavour and fish! Grilled fish good, kids meals good, puddings quite nice. When checking the bill had been charged extra for kids drinks even though in with the meal. A very average meal. Waiter was very attentive and happy to sort any issues out .

Soup was served in a chipped bowl (have any of the staff been on a hygiene course?) and the bottom of the crab pate bowl was covered in some sort of dried food. Love Cafe Rouge and have visited many all round the country but will never ever visit this one again

We went for lunch here as we were shopping nearby before Christmas. The place was moderately crowded with very little space to store our toddler's buggy. Lunch orders were taken promptly but took around 45 minutes to arrive. Food was cold and the omelette ordered was stiff, dry and tasted like cardboard, not sure how they managed that. We had waited so long already that we didn't feel it was worthwhile sending the food back and waiting for replacement.
We will not be going back there, large number of other restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, at least a couple we had tried previously had been better.
