We only had a salad each as going to see a film. Both good. Nice Staff.

Overall I would describe our visit to Cafe Rouge as disappointing and expensive with underwhelming service. The quality of the food just didn't compare to various independent restaurants that we know at a similar price level. My onion soup was a small portion with no sign of any Gruyere cheese as described on the menu and which I had expected to see melting on the soup. My partner's pate was OK but no butter was provided for the bread that came with it so we had to request some. Regarding mains, my dish of moules was OK but my partner's fish cake was quite tasteless. It was served with a small dry salad, so we had to ask for some dressing.
We ordered a bottle of Muscadet which arrived at the table insufficiently chilled. The server seemed surprised when I said it wasn't cold enough and requested an ice bucket. She returned with one but with just some ice in the bottom and no water so she had to take it away to add water. Shouldn't a restaurant at this level automatically supply an ice bucket with white wine and know what to do with it ?!? I really don't see why I should have to tell someone how to do their job when I'm there spending good money!
For starters, and mains, wine at £19.50, various sundries and coffees the bill came to almost £74. In future we'll stick to independent restaurants where they generally are more motivated to provide good quality of food and service.

food was very good, but small portions. We had starters which were lovely and two steak and frites (small again) and a bottle of red wine. Lovely food, good service, but expensive for the amount of food given. Might go back again for breakfast this time as when we went before that was really good value for money.

Good food but very long wait

Friendly and welcoming atmosphere - on this occasion a live performing female singer was singing just a little too loudly - we could not carry out a normal conversation - so we asked and were located to a quieter part of the restaurant. Unfortunately this particular restaurant does suffer from high levels of normal background noise which in my opinion is not necessary as this can be eliminated by the adoption of sound absorbing materials designed purposely for restaurants etc.
Lovely sea bass and sweet topped off an enjoyable evening. The mains were reduced by a 40% internet offer.

Nice, pleasant restaurant, good atmosphere. Good food - had baked Camembert, 5oz steak chips & salad, followed by ceme brûlée. Service was slow as appeared to be short staffed or just very busy, however waiter was attentive & apogised for the wait. While we were there the manager turned away a couple of parties due to no availability
My husband ordered a pint of Stella which was flat, but the waiter replaced this with a bottle is Stella & only charged for one although he had two.
