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.

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

This was the very first restaurant I visited in London--a very memorable place. :)

I still had my jet lag and was half unconscious, but I remember I liked this place very much. ;) It has very nice atmosphere. I had a salmon salad and it was delish! The service was prompt and pleasant, too.

I'll definitely be back here. :)more

I really like Cafe Rouge. It's got a cute decor and the thing I like most is that it does the basics very well. This is something I have found that you can't always take for granted, but Cafe Rouge didn't disappoint in any way. The food was tasty, fresh, fairly priced, served quickly and with a smile. The view from this branch is pretty. Nice. See photo.

I would recommend it and I will go...more

After climbing to the top of St. Paul's Cathedral, my legs were twitching and we needed somewhere to take in some nutrients, fast. We asked a couple locals where we could eat around there, and they said that Cafe Rouge was a chain but a decent one.

My mother and I split an order of salmon cakes and an order of crab salad. The salmon cakes were okay, a little bit dry and very uninteresting....more

I have to say, Cafe Rouge is one of the better chain restaurants in London. If you're looking for a no-fuss, no-frills French meal, head in their direction. I recently accompanied my visiting grandmother to this location for lunch. What a wonderful place to people-watch (as long as you get a seat by the window). Directly across the street from St Paul's Cathedral, you have stunning views of...more
