Restaurant description

Café Rouge Bournemouth serves French brasserie-style cuisine in a picturesque and vibrant setting. Branksome Rail Station is within easy walking distance of 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.

    Nice food and a great evening. Only criticism was that it took a long time to receive our drinks on arrival.

    Worst meal we have ever had, ordered Burger which a a tiny shrivelled up piece in a large extra dry, I would say STALE bun, served with pale floppy chips which we sent back to be cooked, then I had a supposedly Chocolate Fondant which was solid right through and a lump of clag, impossible to eat, as I say very upsetting for us and totally disgusting!!!

    Excellent meal. A bit pricey- wouldn't have gone without the 40% off mains. Service rather slow considering they were almost empty.

    Love Café Rouge but last nights meal somewhat disappointing. 4 people in party - one starter (escargot) looked like a dogs dinner, one main (lamb cassoulet) meat inedible because of sinews & at £16+ would have thought a better cut of meat would have been used. As we were using Tesco vouchers & were with friends didn't feel like spoiling the evening by complaining. The bill with drinks (3 ciders & a glass of wine) came to £137 so would have been expensive without the Tesco vouchers. Live music didn't add anything to the experience & was so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. Based on last nights experience would not recommend Café Rouge but have previously raved about it - even if somewhat pricey for what you get!
