Called in here for a quick meal with my wife the day before cruising. Service was great and the food was as we expected from cafe rouge. Steak came as we requested (medium) in the minimum of time. Staff we're very pleasant and polite. Can highly recommend this outlet.

As the name suggests. This is not the main cafe rouge of which we frequent often on our travels around the country. The shame of this is the lack of choice. We do live in Southampton so do visit many times whilst shopping. My wife and myself always have the same meals as we have tried other things and have been very disappointed. Mussel's were full of grit and inedible. Actually told by staff are you sure you want a coffee as it isn't very nice. Yes we agree. Undrinkable and we left it. On the plus side. The staff there are well above average and really look after you. The bad meals we had were refunded and they could not apologise enough. Do wonder if it is down to the chef not quite up to standard.

Me, my bf and son come here often for breakfast. Its a little over priced buf you know what its worth it. Cooked well and served promptly. Staff are friendly and helpfull. Just horrible lift to get up (with pram or wheelchair) is abit of putting.

Have been here a couple of times, although forgot to review the first time, for brunch/lunch. It's fine, but it doesn't do the Cafe Rouge brand many favours. The food is overpriced and not quite good enough and the staff range from great to slightly creepy (especially whoever greeted us at the entrance and didn't stop talking while we tried to decide).
