A group of us went there for coffee and some small snacks before an event. Staff is extremely friendly. Food was good (Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame, about 9 and 10 quid) but maybe a bit on the small side. Be aware service can be quite slow when busy so let staff know in advance that you need to leave... More

The staff are lovely and the service is excellent too. Sometimes the billing itself is a little strange, but it... More

The meal was fantastic, we had mussels which came up really fresh and hot. We informed the staff before our meal that we had a voucher, Which we thought that the service would be a little diffrent. To our delight the service was great, really friendly place to eat.

We use Cafe Rouge quite a bit as there are dishes on the menu that we rather like, at a very reasonable price. The service time could be improved and would prove a problem to diners in a hurry. Other than that would recommend this restaurant.

Great meal on a warm Thursday night in Hertford. Food was very tasty and came out promptly. Had deep fried mussels with garlic mayo to start followed by the cout de boeuf to share. Finished off with strawberry crepes and chocolate truffles. Very good attentive friendly service by our waitress Monika, will be back again very soon.

A poor performance from front of house staff ruined our meal. After waiting nearly 20 minutes just for drinks we decided to up and leave. But have been before and throughly enjoyed it! Such a shame

Description
Occupying a prime location in the pedestrianised square, Café Rouge looks directly across to the cenotaph and is the ideal place to sit down, relax with a meal and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. A petit bit of trivia: during an outbreak of plague in 1563, the Parliament of England temporarily relocated from London to Hertford. To commemorate this, the square was re-named Parliament Square in the 20th century.
