The cafe rouge is a very inviting place to eat. Such a friendly greeting at the door and we were seated within a couple of minutes. The atmosphere is most pleasant. Our order was taken by Laura. She was very friendly and made the dining experience great. The serving of our starters was timely. It was the French onion soup.... More

A friend and I had a 2 night stay in Chester and ate here both evenings. It was not at all busy but there was a lovely warm, cosy ambience. Starters on the first evening were delicious. Cheese soufflé presented with a light, 'girlie' salad, and my friend assured me that her garlic mushrooms were not overpoweringly garlicy. We both... More

It was very busy on the day that I visited this restaurant with a family member but even so the service by Laura and Helen was excellent. All the staff seemed to be working hard and the meal was very nice too.

Visited late afternoon after Xmas shopping. Had the 2 course lunch menu. Choice very limited and food just average. Service pretty poor. Staff friendly enough but service slow and we got fed up waiting for the food to be served. Won't bother again.

Popped in for breakfast with my partner well before the lunchtime rush. There was only instant coffee as the machine was broken. No worries, we are tea drinkers. We ordered and the tea came fairly quickly. We like to enjoy our breakfast with tea but the food took so long (over 30 minutes), we had long finished our tea lest... More

Having pre-booked for nine people and advising Cafe Rouge of our starter and main course...what could possibly go wrong? The food! The service! Three bowls of soup were cold and sent back. Our nine main courses were delivered...at different times...and some people had finished before other main courses came out. One Christmas dinner was dished up cold...this was sent back.... More

Ate here on Friday night. The restaurant wasn't busy and had plenty of free tables. Attentive staff and varied menu. Decent quality food at a reasonable price. Second time here for a cheap bite. Would return. Leffe on tap too!
