There was around four other people in the restaurant but we didn't get our coffees until we had first waited a while for desert and then waited another 10 mins after eating. Meanwhile we were watching the waiters banter behind the bar. The... More

Handy for the shops in Birmingham, we popped in for an evening meal and had a tasty 2 courses and drinks for around £20 per head which was good value for the quality of food we had. The waiter was friendly and we didn't have to wait too long for anything

But disappointed with cafe rouge breakfast. Plate was cold so pancakes were only luke warm. Coffee was ok, nothing special. Toilets were absolutely freezing. Quite expensive for what it was really. Staff were friendly but can't say I would want to go again.

Attended the Cafe Rouge at The Mailbox with the wife for her Birthday. The Front of House gentleman was brilliant. He made us feel very welcome and noticed it was my wife's birthday, he then provided her with a free glass of Prosecco and a balloon. We had the steak and fries, purchased via Groupon and the food was AMAZING!... More

I like the atmosphere is cafe rouge but in the last two or three months they have changed their menu and I now find fewer things I like there. The service is good and waiters always polite.
