“Just OK ”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Had lunch with my sisters this week. Food was pricey but OK and customer throughput means there is little in the way of sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of festival week. Pate with sliced baguette with white wine. Came to this venue a year ago and enjoyed the meal better.

There are better places to pay comparable prices.

“Standard cafe rouge”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Stopped for late lunch/early dinner before our train home. Seated straight away, food good as always... Not really for a romantic meal, but a bit more than a cafe..

“Good for a light lunch”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The menu choices for lunch are wide ranging and tasty. The pate was excellent and the crevettes delicious and nicely accompanied by plenty of thinly sliced baguette. Service was a little bit slow, but we were in no hurry

“Fun time”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

My family and I had a great time at Cafe Rouge. The service was friendly and the food was quite delicious. I myself had two starters - the onion and pate rouge - which were hearty and wonderful. However, my niece had the croque monsieur, which I thought looked a little limp and sad. The other dishes were well received though. We have been to another Cafe Rouge - the one in Gatwick - and have also found the food to be quite good and the service helpful. Good value-for-money in all.
