In Edinburgh city centre, Café Rouge is housed in a grand building and offers a charming French dining experience. There is a popular outside 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.

The Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Princess Street Gardens are within easy reach of Café Rouge in Edinburgh. Edinburgh Rail Station is a 12-minute walk away.

    Excellent meal and friendly service. Onion soup really tasty. Only(minor) complaint - could have done with some air conditioning.

    I found the restaurant to be relaxing with a friendly atmosphere. The breaded camembert with cranberry was delicious. The fishcakes went down a treat with my husband, my daughter devoured the burger and I enjoyed a minute steak. All of which were ample portions. Non of the overload you get in some restaurants.

    We were attracted back to Cafe Rouge by a craving for decent French onion soup and the £15 for 2 course and a glass of fizz deal. Both worked our well. The food was great, service spot on and the atmosphere was buzzing. Loved it. What could be better? We found the portions way too big and sadly both had to leave half of our main courses and had no room for the desert we'd promised ourselves or even a coffee!

    The atmosphere was very warm & friendly, with most attentive staff. I did wonder however why we were placed at a table for four when we were only two. Didn't matter of course but I just wondered !

    A very good dining experience and excellent value for money. I had fantastic garlic mushrooms to start, my daughter said her pate was also very good and my husband enjoyed his onion soup. We all choose different mains - steak (though small) was perfectly cooked and served with a side salad - we ordered fries too and this is probably required for a man's portion. On the other hand my beetroot and goat's cheese tart was not only delicious but also very generous. Daughter loved her chicken salad - the seared chicken was very good. The deal included a glass of fizz - not dry enough for me but given the price can't complain - I ordered a glass of house Sauvignon which was perfect with the tart.

    We arrived mid afternoon and the restaurant was quiet yet still had a warm welcoming atmosphere. The staff were very helpful especially in making sure I got a gluten-free meal. We enjoyed the food, my husband's steak was tasty and tender and my half chicken lovely and crispy on the outside and succulent inside. We will go again.
