“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

I always look forward to visiting Cafe Rouge and this branch was just as fab as others I've visited. It's very well situated in the centre of Chester near to the shops, and the City Walls.

The food was absolutely delicious. The soup was possibly the best I have ever tasted- it was absolutely awesome. And the sausages and chocolate pudding didn't disappoint either.

It was Monday evening and fairly quiet but still a nice pleasant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

“Truly fantastic , as always .”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Passing through Chester few weeks ago, bit of shopping before visiting a friend in hospital , thought - stop here , bound to be to the usual standards , wow how right we were .
Simple lunch if a bowl of steamed musscles, bread and some chips , just stunning , sometimes the simple things in life are the best .
Trust me , it doesn't get any better than this.
Waitress was as always , just amaizing , cafe Rouge , why don't you set up a training academy for customer service , you should as you are the very best I've ever come across , and that's in numerous outlets.

Well done

“Flying visit!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Our first visit here, we were tempted by the outside tables in the sun! Time was not on our side so my daughter and I had the sharing platter. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient and drinks and food arrived quickly. The platter was gorgeous and promptly devoured!! We went in to pay and we were both were surprised by how beautiful it was inside as had never been before and so looking forward to coming back and enjoying lunch/dinner inside. Thanks Cafe Rouge, we will be back.....

“Lovely Food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We ate here 2 nights running as the food was so good. I especially enjoyed the sea bass dish and my husband the duck. The prices aren't cheap but we were using Tesco Tokens for the food.
The service was really good the first night but the second we were seated and abandoned for quite a while without even a drink order being taken and they weren't busy. The weather was so hot, they were having bother keeping drinks cold and our icebucket was cold water when it came! Don't suppose this happens very often.The staff were friendly and the food good though so would return.
