Within the Oracle shopping centre, Café Rouge is handy for shoppers to grab some French cuisine. Café Rouge - Reading also boasts an 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.

Café Rouge - Reading Oracle is within easy reach of Reading Train Station. The Oracle shopping centre is served by great bus links.

    The food was lovely but the service was SO slow. They did speed up when we told them we had an appointment at 7pm...but we had arrived at 5.30, and didn't get our starters for about 50 minutes..apparently I should have told them that we had a time limit earlier. As I had allowed 90 minutes, and the restaurant was practically deserted, I was very surprised that we ended up eating very swiftly to be able to finish our meal in time. Disappointing.

    A friendly greeting on arrival and interest in why we chose a particular table.service was speedy and friendly and the food was good. A thoroughly pleasant experience.

    I booked a table for 5 friends and on arrival confirmed that I would be using my gourmet card for 3 of us and my other 2 friends had Tesco Vouchers. I was told that they could not use the Tesco Vouchers unless they sat at another table as it was not allowed to sit together we tried to explain but they did not seem to understand it was quite stressfull It was not resolved until I made it clear that we need 2 SEPERATE bills he then said that for that evening we could share a table, but it would not be allowed again.. My Friends with the Tesco Vouchers dined at Cafe Rouge Henley on Wednesday with other friends who had a Gourmet card and they did not have a problem. Also 2 members ordered Rib Eye Steak which is a new addition to the menu and was told that could not order it. No reason offered.
    I will have to give serious thought as to whether I will visit the Reading Branch in the future.

    The staff were superb, friendly, attentive but not over the top. The food was excellent as was the service. My only complain would be the music was a bit loud so was difficult to have a nice quiet chat with friends.

    Friendly waiter and excellent variety of food made it a good place to meet for a catch up with friends. Small complaint when the Caesar salads came without anchovies even though the waiter had checked when taking the order and both people had said "yes, lots please ". When the waiter then brought some on a separate plate there were three each! Apart from that very small hitch the food was excellent and we had a really good time.
