In an historic area of Basingstoke, Café Rouge serves brasserie-style French cuisine in an authentic environment. Boosted by a lively buzz, Café Rouge is a popular venue for French dining.

As part of the nationwide chain 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 10-minute walk from Festival Place shopping centre, Café Rouge - Basingstoke has an al fresco dining area.

    Excellent food and dining experience, service was very good. However, the background music was slightly loud.

    We meet in CR once every few months. It's always been our place of choice. They were not busy, probably because of the snow. Three tables including us. However they were very keen to clear us down and get home this time which was a shame. Lights went on, dragging in the flags and seats from outside, moving tables around us. All quite rude I thought, as we drank our coffees. It wasn't even near to 10:30! The staff seemed to just hang around, probably bored stiff! Never mind. The food was nice as usual. We'll probably go again
    Although makes you think.

    dislike the idea of compulsory service charge when 8 or moe people.Gratauity should be left at diners discretion and staff should be expected to give good service and therefore paid properly by the owners.The onus should not be on the diner to reomove service charge!
