We had not prebooked a table so it was a spur of the moment choose to visit it as we had received a discount voucher from Cafe Rouge in Stratford upon Avon. It was fairly busy with 49 French school children all going backwards and...More

When you visit a restaurant which is part of a chain, you are aware of the menu in advance. The success here was the good and friendly service and enjoyable hot food.

We like this place, nice ambience and if the weather is good they have a very pleasant seating area outdoors. The food is really good and the service is ok. We went to the Cafe Rouge in Newbury but that one was not even close.

Tucked away amongst the shops and restaurants on Little Clarendon Street, Café Rouge Oxford is a little of slice of Paris right in the heart of the city. With an interior inspired by the rich history of rowing and punting, there's a fantastic boat-style booth as well as a conservatory, large private dining room and a gorgeous outdoor dining area perfect for warmer months!
