In the quaint Lanes shopping area of Brighton, Café Rouge serves a fantastic range of French dishes. The cosy interior adds to the French atmosphere, whilst there is an al fresco dining area.

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.

Offering a relaxing venue away from the lively buzz of the area, Café Rouge Brighton is within walking distance of Brighton Train Station as well as many local theatres.

    Waiting staff were friendly & welcoming. However the food was really poor - no flavour, lack of seasoning & the crepe dish lacked a crepe!!! Really dreadful! Would not recommend or visit again - Cafe Rouge has really gone downhill:/

    The restaurant was festively decorated for christmas,with a nice ambience.we ordered from the three course menu,where there was at least 3/4 choices.this also included a glass of processo on arrival.
    Starters were good with lovely crusty bread,unfortunately the main course was let down by the vegetables. The parsnips were hard and inedable,and the sprouts were tasteless.the dessert was very nicely presented and delicious.
    The staff were attentive,and we were not rushed throughout the meal.
    Overall it was a pleasant lunch,which could be improved by better cooked vegetables.

    What a disapointment the deal was for a set menue I had the Mackerel Rilletts meant to be smoked mackeral (but didn't want the pickeled cucumber as Allergicto vinger did explain) nothing in place of cucumber , well there was fish in it but it was not smoked mackerel ( been a chief I know) two bit of bread and just enough to cover bread very small portion and contained red unions not needed with smoked ??? , Main I had 5 oz steak with fries and a bit of rocket didn't get choice on how steaak was cooked but rare was ok with me . Cost to produce these two courses would have been no more than £3.00 prob less . Charged 12-95 that is over a 300% mark up . so in total was not going to pay £3.00 for desert . All in all complete and utter rip of .
