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.

We had a lovely lunch at Cafe Rouge in Canterbury. The mussels tempura starter was delicious and they were happy to adapt the salad to suit my dietary needs.The waitress was very friendly and service was good. I would go back here

Very good - Food was excellent value for money, one thing I would request is that you get free bread with the mussels as fries didn't really go with it, swap?
Good - Service was very good thank you as what you would expect from CR.
Bad - Its was 27c inside the air con had been turned up ridiculous and thankfully above waiter service turned it down.

Reminded me of Fawlty Towers but unfortunately as the victim it wasn't very amusing

Lovely food, but the service was incredibly slow
Crème brulé which we ordered had run out, but the kitchen did not tell the waitress so when we asked after waiting 20 mins the manager gave us a free desert for n embarrassment

I was taking my family out to lunch as a treat. We reserved a table as we didn't want to be disappointed. We arrived on time and was shown to our table. We ordered our food and drinks. The drinks arrived with our starters. We were sitting next to a family who were complaining about the service. I think the little girl had eaten her food before her parents meal had arrived. So we thought our service would be good as a complaint had already gone to the person in charge. That didn't happen. We waited about 40 minutes for our main meal. We wanted a dessert so I asked the waitress if the dessert would take as long as the main meal, she said she would check. She came back and said that they were not busy so the desserts would be served quickly. We then waited about 20 minutes for her to come back to take our order. We all got fed with waiting so decided to ask for the bill and leave. I told the person that we were fed up with waiting but had no response. What was meant to be a nice family meal was spoilt by the terrible service. By the way the food was excellent.
