In the historical city of Exeter, a flavour of France can be found at Café Rouge. Café Rouge Exeter boasts a vast number of seats as well as a vibrant al fresco dining area.

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.

Whilst the exterior is modern in appearance, the interior embodies an authentic French ambience. Cafe Rouge - Exeter is within walking distance of Exeter Cathedral and high street shops.

    Friendly, efficient, attentive staff.
    Very impressed by member of staff who noticed I hadn't been given the means to freshen up my fingers while I was enjoying my bouillabaisse and brought iced lemon water unprompted.
    My crab and avocado starter and main course of bouillabaisse were excellent.
    Having lunch in Cafe Rouge was the highlight of a lovely day out.

    Chaotic service. Eventually got meal. Obviously hurriedly cooked. Left most of it. Not charged for meal. What is so complicated. Visit this restaurant regularly but now wont bother.

    First time we've booked, excellent, worked a treat and saved a lot of time. Also very good service on what was a busy day. The was up to the standard we wanted and we will come again. We will also use the booking service more often.

    Excellent food, but restaurant very warm.

    Really good experience. Booked on line - worked well. Restaurant was well placed for car parking. Food and service was excellent, and there was a lively " buzz " in the restaurant which we really like. No problems in recommending this venue to anyone. We have found that this high standard is consistent across the Cafe Rouge chain of restaurants. Prices are creeping up, ( as they are everywhere ), but we cashed in some Tesco Clubcard vouchers and using their fantastic boost offer did really well.
