Overlooking the Lowry, Café Rouge Salford Quays serves good value French cuisine in a prime Manchester location. With a terrace al fresco dining area, Café Rouge’s cosy interior complete with red banquettes has an authentic French atmosphere.

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.

A good choice for pre or post-theatre dining, Café Rouge Salford Quays offers affordable French cuisine in relaxed surroundings.

    Menu selection on the Spring menu at 6pm was sold out causing the options to be changed resulting also in the price we had planed for our eating experience . This situation was disappointing creating the mackrel option to be changed to a crab option which was dearer but delicious . The second main course choice we again had to change and again disappointing and question why at such an early stage and time in the evening question was this a ploy to get you in but once at the table up the meal spend per head ?
    Like wise the dessert was not available but again another choice was offered , my budget for the meal was double but faced with the option to please my partner I could hardly get up and go ?? The bill was added up incorrectly is glass of wine was converted to a bottle and whilst the host looked at the bill and was aware it was a glass ! I had to point the £18.00 plus error out. Waiting time was longer than expected and do not exempt the reply given of the theatre causing the delay ! If this is know why book in so many covers at 6pm. Portions were reasonable and the food served was well presented and tasty . Overall I felt not value for the £90 for two people !!

    We enjoyed what we ordered and were served by a very friendly team.However,they had run out of several dishes and also wines which I thought was poor management.

    We booked for 6pm but arrived early and they managed to fit us in. Food was good with a gluten free option but the best bit were the very friendly staff. It was my mums birthday and we'd taken a cake and they went out of their way to have fun with her. It made her day
