In the walled city of York, Café Rouge serves French cuisine within a glorious building featuring glass frontage and a vibrant red colour scheme. York Minister is just around the corner from Café Rouge.

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 – York allows diners to take in the atmosphere of York's side streets with al fresco dining, whist enjoying an affordable French dish.

    We had a lovely table in the window. Love the sharing platter. Shame various things were not available including dauphinois potatoes. My duck did not have a crispy skin, it was sent back for over ten minutes and returned no better. However, the manager gave a generous discount for this, and the duck meat was succulent and the cherry sauce delicious.

    Disappointing. Very slow service and the new tagine, whilst tasty, was a very small portion.

  • ((*** 28 March 2017 by Katy Elliott from York

    Over priced food for what you got which turned out quite expensive between three.

    All brilliant

    Everything we ordered were tasty dishes, well cooked and the little veggie croquettes with Creme fraiche were fabulous and crunchy on the outside. The chicken was simply cooked in garlic and delicious. Pinot Grinot wine - spot on! And because the portions weren't oversize as they are in most places, We had room for dessert. Lemon taste and ice cream - yum.
    Our waitress and waiter were both wonderful and attentive and took time to chat. Ambience in the restaurant was intimate and clean and tidy. We were given the best windier able without asking and we had booked online.
