The food was average and they were out of the dish I wanted, but the wine was excellent. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

Traditional and inviting, the exterior of Café Rouge Hitchin complements the warm and cosy dining area. The Parisian atmosphere is boosted by the delectable dishes on the French menu.

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.

Set on the High Street, Café Rouge - Hitchin boasts an al fresco dining area and is within walking distance of high street shops.

    The l'escargot was very expensive for just 3 pieces and I was expecting it in their shells! Everything was very salty, but the onion soup was superb.

    It was fine, generally good, service very good. Had to send a fish dish back as it was undercooked. Took money off the bill once requested.

    The restaurant was busy which was good to see for an early (7.15pm) booking. We are regulars at Cafe Rouge around the county as we can use our Gourmet card any time! Up to the usual good standard of Cafe Rouge, good service and good food. Would certainly go again when we are in the area.
