Cafe Rouge


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.

Went in on Saturday our first visit to a

Spending an hour or two waiting for hubby to finish his business meeting I'm in cafe rouge and one waitress in particular is being so sweet, bless her she is singing, dancing, chatting, an asset to her employer.

I'm only enjoying a drink, it's lunchtime and busy as could be, but it's great food great value great service as alwaysmore

Another chain....

This is a wonderful spot for a decently-priced meal. If you get a table near the window, the view of St. Paul's is spectacular, especially in the evening. This puts this place in my romantic dinner category. I tried posting a photo of St. Paul's from our table, but the little yelp* dinosaur had the broken cables in his tiny dino hands. It would have been a beautiful...more

It's a long story how we ended up by St Paul's at 10:00 PM so I won't go into it but it worked out well. We were looking for a late night bite when most places were closed and we came across Cafe Rouge. We were greeted by the manager and seated in a cozy corner with a perfect view of St Paul's Cathedral, lit up by spotlights just across the block.

I always love a damn good steak frites and...more

I honestly loved it ! It was quaint and cheap and a quick French bite. I mean really, their confit de canard was good for what it was & didn't disappoint at all. Whilst visiting my nana, I went to Cafe Rouge at least 2-3 times a week for lunch or dinner and although I'm not too fond of chains, I think they're quite good and reasonable for what you get. It was always pleasurable dining here...more
