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>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>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>No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

Having scheduled a meeting within this little French cafe, one might notice how it is the same as being back in Paris. French waiters, French menu and French portion sizes. Refreshing.
The food leaves one wanting to venture into...more
I have to say i agree with the reviews of this restaurant. Out of hunger we tried this place with the hope it had improved but i am sad to say we had no such luck.more
How hard is it to make a Croque Monsieur? Ham and cheese, bread, under the grille until it is hot and bubbly, right? Well this 'French' bistro can't seem to make one to save their life.
I used to enjoy coming to this CR behind Harrods. Yes, it was cliche French cafe fare, but quite dependable in a pinch and not bad for a spot of lunch. Slowly though, it started to go downhill, more hit or...more
Directly across the street from some massive department store,
this is the place where the summertime somebody people* sip pricey coffee and smoke fags (actually illegal now) while staring at their Lamborghini Diablo's and Ferrari Enzo's parked out front, waiting for their wives or lovers to come out of Harrods after just spending £100000 on tiskets and taskets nobody needs but will look good...more
