Excellent traditional French cuisine that you will enjoy and the cheeses are very good French cheeses from the excellent fromagerie from just down the road.

From the first hello, it was not going to work out. The woman (I believe she must have been the owner) was explaining a dish and we couldn't quite understand. So my mother asked again, and she actually said, quite rudely "you need to listen to me". To which I tried to explain that we didn't understand what it was... More

Unsmiling service, and not quick. Rather pretentious. "We don't do pommes frites at the Coq Rouge." Finally negotiated a pommes de terre gratinee, which was good but miniscule. My rognons were good but the partner's trout had been dead a long time, and served with extra veggies as a side plate, exactly the same as was served alongside the dead... More

One of my favorite restaurants to go for lunch. Quick service and great menu. Hard time every time to decide between the lamb or beef. Could do a bit more effort with the accomplishment, sometimes its pasta or mash, for such quality food you should have something a bit nicer such as gratin. Nice service. Starters for lunch are good.... More

The restaurant is pretty small and usually full. I would advice making reservations. While the food is good, the service is very slow and you should be prepared to spend the evening there.

We have just had one of the best meals we have ever eaten. We had the trout and the veals kidneys and they without doubt one of the finest dining experiences we have had and together with the excellent service, the evening has been a wonderful experience. The wine was also chosen for us and it was excellent and the... More

The food was, as always, excellent, we have been going here for almost five years! The restaurant is always full and yet the atmosphere is tranquil. The service is spot-on, the maître d' is second to none, she really knows her food and wine and is very good at pairing them.

This was my third stay in Le Coq Rouge and I loved every singe one of them. The food is consistently great. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very stylish but nice and great of both business dinner and a nice evening with your loved one. The best is clearly the price, especially compared to other restaurants in the region.... More

The place is a bit weird... inside it's quite fancy(?) /kitsch. But the food is very good and they have lunch menus which are quite cheap.
