Chelmsford Café Rouge serves delicious bistro-style French cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. There is also an outside seating area and Chelmsford Rail Station is a 9-minute walk away.

As part of the nationwide group of Café Rouge restaurants, this branch offers their range of classic French dishes such as confit duck, beef bourguignon, steak frites and mussels. Smaller dishes are also on offer for a lighter bite. Particularly good value for money are the set menus for lunch and dinner (available most days). To accompany the food there is also a good range of French wines, many from less well known producers.

In true French style, breakfast is also an important meal at Café Rouge. With croissants, pain au chocolat, omelettes and croques, as well as hot chocolate, tea and all types of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

Close to the town centre, Café Rouge is within a 10-minute walk of Chelmsford Central Park.

    Friendly service. But meal average. Frites overlooked but fresh portion supplied immediately.

    Was possibly the worst brunch I've ever had! Took a lifetime, was small and tasteless, the staff were terrible- All of them! Forgot juice, toast... brought me my bill twice but no card machine to actually pay! Certainly will not return.

    I took my twins for their birthday but I have to say I was not impressed with this restaurant . The food was not particularly nice, presentation very average, the restaurant needs a make over as it looks like it has past it best .. My son had a dirty plate and I had to send my steak back as it was stone cold . The dish of mussels was half full .
    The staff was pleasant enough .
    I will not go back there .

    There were 5 of us and each had something different and were all pleased with our choices.
    If we had one complaint it was that we had a long wait for our bill, 40 minutes after receiving our dessert,
    and we didn't have coffee, also the restaurant was quite empty by then.
    All in all though we had a lovely birthday celebration.

    Dined here many times, always good service. The French Onion soup is reliably good and the beef bourgignon was rich and tasty. My husband had the bouillabaisse which he said was equally good and we washed it all down with a lovely bottle of Malbec!
