Popped in for a quick bit to eat and glad we did, the service was faultless and the food was lovely and beautifully cooked. Our waiter Stuart made it seem like nothing was to much trouble and was a generally happy and bubbly person.

This is one of teh best Cafe Rouge I have visited. Food was excellent and the service was perfect. I have experienced issues with the service at Cafe Rouge, Windsor in the past but the service in the Reading Restaurant was excellent.

We were a group of six colleagues dining here and you could not wish for a better service. The Café Rouge menu is interesting and full of good French choices. Where else can you get a good Egg Meurette for starters? And the Boeuf Bourguignon...More

We've got a fantastic food and wine menu filled with delicious innovative takes on classic French dishes and our own very special original creations by our Executive Chef Duncan. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! The Oracle is just a 5 minute walk from Reading train station if you're coming by train. By road, the shopping centre is easily reached from the M4 motorway.
