With its traditional exterior, Café Rouge Chester embodies the classic all-day French brasserie. Right next to the Grosvenor shopping centre, Café Rouge offers an outdoor seating area for al fresco dining.

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.

Chester Café Rouge offers a calm, informal setting to enjoy classic French dishes. Café Rouge is also within walking distance of Chester Cathedral and Chester Racecourse.

    Have been to this restaurant quite a few times and have always been pleased with the food. However our visit this time was a little disappointing. Whilst the service, atmosphere and staff were all very good the set menu was poor. There were no mussels and the pork loin dish wasn't availble and substituted with a chicken dish. A deep fried breadcrumbed fillet of chicken with a fried egg on top was not my idea of a French dish!!!

    Food is tasty, new items in the menu, but waiting time after order was too long (approximately 50 min), not very convenient for lunch

    Meal very nice but coffee like mud...asked for hot milk milk with coffee and was given cold!
    Service was reasonable.

    We went to Cafe Rouge for lunch, the service was very good, staff very pleasant. My husband had a starter and we both had a main meal, the food was excellent, we will definitely be going back again.

    We went for breakfast around 1030 and it was very quiet but tarted to fill up around 11. They serve breakfast until 12. It's very nice inside, French slogans and pictures on the walls, nice dim lighting, wheel hair access at the main entrance. The bathrooms are up a floor so don;t know if there is a disabled one. Eggs benedict was delicious as was the pink Lemonade and so was the Marseille Mule. Would definitely go back for lunch or dinner. The pastries and cakes looked very fresh. Very prompt and friendly service.

    Excellent service from very attentive and pleasant staff. We were shown to our table, despite being half an hour early. Each course arrived promptly and was the food was delicious. The ambience within the restaurant was very nice and the background music was pleasant and not overbearing. Our party of 9 was well catered for and the restaurant laid on balloons for my daughter who was 18. We had notified the restaurant of this occasion through the online booking and we were pleasantly surprised to see the balloons and birthday card on the table when we arrived. Thank you to the staff and management at Cafe Rouge Chester for treating us so well !
