In the south London district of Dulwich Village, Café Rouge serves French cuisine in a cosy restaurant with pavement seating overlooking the green.

Being part of the UK-wide Café Rouge restaurant group, this branch offers their range of classic French cuisine. The day starts with croissants, pain au chocolat, baguettes and omelettes, as well as tea, hot chocolate and various types of coffees.

Lunch and dinner are the most popular times, and with the excellent value set menus on offer, it's easy to see why. The main menu also has choices such as poulet Breton, mussels, steak frites and beef bourguignon, as well as smaller dishes for a lighter bite.

For a French restaurant in south London with great value food and a vibrant bistro-style atmosphere, Café Rouge Dulwich Village fits the bill.

    Ideal position, very hot day. No
    Olives for nibbles and no avocado on our Poulet salads. Rushed service. Probably been busy over weekend but gave up trying to catch waitress for second drink.

    No atmosphere at all for a Friday night, and 3/4 empty. The second I arrived I was told "there is only one portion of duck left" this was at 7pm. 3 of us ordered eventually. Our mains arrived before our starters, sent them back, they came again, sent them back again and demanded the starters we had ordered. Got starters and a message that the 2 people who had ordered green beans with their main were out of luck as there were none left (7.45). there were only 2 people serving and doing everything they did well , but looked harassed. I have booked here again for Sunday lunch with 3 friends ( before last nights' fiasco), and that will be my last visit.

    Having said all that the food is very good indeed, the crème brulee and the lemon torte divine. The lamb shank, the chicken and the fish cake all wonderful, What a shame the whole place is on the slide and it shows, no wonder I had half price vouchers,

    Really awful food! Everything except the dessert was a big disappointment

  • ((((* by from Dulwich Village

    A very enjoyable meal with friends. Every course very good apart from the T Bone steaks were a little overlooked which was a pity. Wine, good value.

    In my view the restaurant needs to be refurbished as its looking a little tired.

  • (**** by from London

    Terrible, the food took ages for some reason they even decided to leave bringing the stale bread and dough sticks until the main course arrived. We waited more than an hour for overcooked food that came at different times and in one instance was not what we ordered. It was so bad I feel driven to write this review. Do not go at a busy time.
