Restaurant description

In the centre of the city and a 2-minute walk from Canterbury Cathedral, Café Rouge serves traditional French cuisine. Café Rouge also boasts a large al fresco dining area, just set back from the high street.

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.

Surrounded by popular shops, Café Rouge Canterbury offers an authentic French dining experience.

    Only one waitress and the manager serving . Food very average and poorly presented including chips in butter over cooked fries and rock hard sourdough bread. No pepper sauce available or cider . Long wait between courses and had to find the manager to pay the bill very expensive for the poor quality of food

    Paid almost £20 for a rib eye steak of which half was grissle. Very disappointed even though the waitress didn’t charge for my coffee.
