15 years ago I really enjoyed going to Cafe Rouge (Cheltenham and Plymouth where my daughter went to university so great for a meal when we went to see her). At the time it seemed a bit different, usually had a bit of a buzz, and the prices were OK for what was on offer. Now I find Cafe Rouge usually fairly quiet and the service has been pretty grim. shame.

Great place with a definite French feel to it.food and wine both great and good choice of desert.I will recommend it to anyone that wants to feel like he is somewhere else but the Uk.service was good and not on top of us while eating.

This was the first time we had been to Cafe Rouge and only went there because my son had bought me a gift card for my birthday,you have to pre-book which is very advisable.
On arrival we were shown to our table by a very friendly waitress who gave us a table towards the back away from the bar area,we were given a menu and were given plenty of time to choose.we chose the 3 course option which was £15 a person and we were not disappointed with the portion size,there was soup,salmon or chicken salad for starters,fish cakes,chicken for mains and apricot cake or ice cream for dessert.
Through out the waitress was very helpful and made sure we had everything and didn't push us to have more drinks.when we paid the bill we got a voucher for a breakfast which was buy one get one free.

Small group went for a quick tea - fairly easy to order, food was good, table nice etc etc but nothing special.

Few odd points; warm summers night outside but they dimmed the lights, if the plan was to make it romantic it didn't work as just made it dark, waiter didn't seem to know his wines, the noise in the place is really loud. Almost shouting level.

I'd go back, for the price it's good value but nothing special considering other places on Dean St.

Went here for a quick dinner with a friend on a Monday night. The place was pretty deserted, but the staff were very friendly. They did a very reasonably priced "prix fixe" menu (£12 for 2 courses) and the food was fine, although nothing special, and the portion sizes were a little on the small side.
