Housed on the 1st floor of the Manchester Trafford Centre, Café Rouge offers authentic French cuisine. A traditional faux façade overlooks the courtyard dining area looking out on to the domed food court.

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.

Served by fantastic bus links and with ample free parking, Café Rouge within the Trafford Centre is the perfect place to dine between shops.

    Our waiter could have been better! The pate starter was poor very small for the price and the mussels and chips were very salty. It was on the fixed price menu but because we used tesco vouchers it was full price .

    Waiter, Tarik, was very good.
    We ordered French onion soup which just had lots of pieces of bread in it and no gruyere cheese, though the flavour was good.
    We ordered steak frites. The steak was cooked as we asked and of reasonable quality, but served with very few chips and just a little watercress.
    We've always enjoyed eating at Cafe Rouge, and have been to many branches, but we were quite disappointed with our food this time.

    Great choice of food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Would definitely go again.

    Nicely prepared food and an excellent waiter. We don't remember his name, but he only works the occasional weekend and he left after serving us to go to a cheese and wine event in Manchester.

  • (((** 27 July 2016 by Patricia Miller from Wigan

    I had soup starter which was Luke warm but otherwise very good. I should have asked for it to be reheated but we had waited around twenty minutes for it so didn't bother, my fault. The restaurant wasn't busy so not sure why it took so long.
    my partner had the pate, he said was delicious.
    For main my partner had steak with fries and enjoyed them, my salad with bits of goats cheese scattered on top was very disappointing, I had expected a full warm goats cheese.
    my fault again as the waitress when I told her asked if I'd like something else but I said it was ok then wished I had.
    the house wine, white, was quite good.

    We had lunch here due to a small celebration for my daughter's birthday. The staff were fabulous and really looked after the girls. In particular, Tarik, Sophie and Ben. Food was lovely as always. The girls had an area to themselves which was ideal.
