Café Rouge Norwich Chapelfieldevokes the bohemian charm and rich flavours of traditional French dining. From plush leather booths in the dining room, guests can look out through the towering glass façade, or enjoy outdoor dining during summer.

As part of the nationwide group of Café Rouge restaurants, this branch offers classic French dishes such as confit duck, beef bourguignon, steak frites and mussels. 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 an important meal at Café Rouge in Norwich. 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.

In the quirky dining room, retro trinkets and a patterned wine display make for a playful setting. Norwich Chapelfield Café Rouge is a 7-minute walk from Norwich Market.

    What a disappointing experience Cafe Rouge! We have been cafe rouge customers for many years, using both the Covent Garden and Norwich cafes whenever we go to the theatre. This visit to the Norwich branch can without doubt be described as the worst cafe rouge visit we have ever had!
    It was a bank holiday, we were met with a long list of items from the menu that were not available which included all steak options (except minute steaks), burgers, moules, soufflés etc - infact all the items we were likely to choose! Our table was booked for 17.15 so how on earth the restaraunt continued to trade later in the evening is anyone's guess.
    We ordered drinks: three of our party wanted sparkling water, after a short delay the waitress informed us they had run out of this also and offered soda water as an alternative. Luckily tap water was available!
    We ordered the minute steaks, these arrived on cold plates, the steaks were cooked ok but were not very warm and presentation was poor. We asked for tomatoe ketchup for the frites, a portion for one was initially brought to the table although we were a party of 6, when we asked for more further supplies were delivered and so were pots of mayonnaise that we didn't request.
    As I have previously mentioned we are long term customers of this establishment, had this been a first visit it would be the last without hesitation. As it is I fear we may need to find a new venue for our future meals out when visiting the theatres as this experience can only be described as shambles.

    Our party of 3 visited on Xmas Day. All of us enjoyed every mouthful, and we could not fault the service. The staff were friendly, attentive - but not overly so - having made us very welcome even though they were giving up their Xmas at home!

    Lovely, helpful service. It turned out that the table we had booked was next to a big party, and the staff were very obliging in moving us to a quiet corner. Good food too!

    Very slow service
    Brought wrong meals out to us whilst starter plates were still on table
    Not once asked if everything ok

    Nice table, good food when it came but not enough staff available and customers were waiting ages for meals. Our waitress was superb though and looked after us well.
