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.

Despite making a very short notice booking, Café Rouge managed to accommodate us, with no hassle; we received a very warm welcome on our arrival, and we were brought our food as soon as the last member of our party arrived. The service was excellent and very friendly throughout our meal, and the food was fantastic! We had the Christmas 3-course menu, and everyone loved what they ate. Thank you very much, Café Rouge, we'll definitely be back!

Single lunch starter took 40 minutes to arrive and main courses had not appeared after one hour,in spite of complaining, so gave up and went elsewhere. It seems if you have a "two mains for the price of one" voucher, as we did, you are treated as a second class citizen. Will not be back !

I always enjoy Cafe Rouge, no matter what time of day I've been. It's great for just a quiet meal with your partner or group celebrations. I love it.

My husband's duck was not quite cooked so it had to be taken back. When it came back - a few minutes later is was all right. The lamb was superb.

I was disappointed that a little salad was not served with the steak which would have added colour to the plate

Maitre d seated us next to the waiter's booth and under the WC sign, even though there were lots of decent tables free, the wrong wine came, we waited an unusually long time to pay and were served by at least 4 different people. Nice food, not impressed with the service.

lunched booked for 1pm unfortunately my friend was extremely late so we didn't eat 'til 2pm. My cheese souffle was lovely but my friend's salmon fishcakes were very dry.
