With a combination of delicious food, great wines and a real ambience, Café Rouge has embodied the style and je ne sais quoi of French dining since it opened way back in 1989. <br/><br/>Now with over 90 sites across the country it's just the place to mull over the morning papers with a cafe au lait and a croissant, pop in for a spot of lunch, share a post-work drink or relax over an evening meal.<br/><br/>The menu covers a range of French classics from croques and baguettes, ideal for a quick and easy snack, to more substantial fare such as steak frites and boeuf bourguignon. Likewise, the wines are predominately French; many made by lesser known producers, and provide the perfect accompaniment to the food on offer.<br/><br/>No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

I am American who spends a great amount of time in London. I have attempted to eat at Cafe Rouge two times over the course of a year - mainly for it's close proximity to Harrods. Both "attempts" to eat breakfast here have been a disaster! Shocking in fact. (Service is in general less prompt than in the USA in general here but . . . this is a real travesty.) Both times I strolled in...more
It's a chain and it's not especially gluten-free, but it's very convenient for before or after theatre suppers. I had the minute steak avec frites - the fries were delicious, like McDonald's if they were fancier with some kind of beef or lardy taste which I'd prefer not to think about (not to mention the whole cross-contamination issue). The minute steak was small but had good flavor and...more
The place looked and felt a little touristy, for sure (oversized red awnings, french food painted on walls, everything very faux-french, a bit themey), but we were in need of some sustenance for a big sloppy day of sight-seeing and thought it would be apropos.
Okay, for startes, great coffee - and I had my share while in London. The service was prompt, attentive and felt quite genuine. I...more

Il servizio è molto cordiale, il posto assolutamente pulito e c'è anche una wi-fi gratuita il cui accesso necessita solo la registrazione alla pagina pubblica del gestore.
