With a combination of delicious food, great wines and a real ambience, Café Rouge has embodied the style and je ne sais quoi of French dining since it opened way back in 1989. Now with over 90 sites across the country it's just the place to mull over the morning papers with a cafe au lait and a croissant, pop in for a spot of lunch, share a post-work drink or relax over an evening meal.

The menu covers a range of French classics from croques and baguettes, ideal for a quick and easy snack, to more substantial fare such as steak frites and boeuf bourguignon. Likewise, the wines are predominately French; many made by lesser known producers, and provide the perfect accompaniment to the food on offer.

No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day,

    we had a late lunch which was a treat for my birthday. My husband has the mushrooms for starters, which were delicious, we both had steak baguette for mains, and they were cooked exactly as we had requested. For dessert, I had the tarte tatin and hubby had belgian waffle with pear and ice cream, both were very tasty, but were on the small size.

    I have eaten here before and the food is fine, but our latest visit was very disappointing. We were left to seat ourselves, I noticed other customers being indicated to from a distance to seat themselves, (two couples subsequently left without ordering). We arrived at 11.45 am for the Breakfast Bundle, which we've had in the past and enjoyed. It clearly stated until 12 pm for the Breakfast Bundle, we were told we could order this by one waitress, but given lunchtime menus. When we asked about the breakfast menu we were told, very impolitely, by a second waitress that "everyone was ordering lunch now". When we repeated that the Breakfast was still available, the lunchtime menus were whipped out of our hands, literally, and we were told "Well if she said they're still available..." We then ordered two teas and had to return the milk because there were black bits floating in it. Needless to say, because of the rude attitude of the waitress and the unwelcoming atmosphere we did not order any food. As it was, I was going to order something off the lunch menu but wasn't given the chance because, as I said, my menu was whipped away from me. I'm not sure I would return to this particular Cafe Rouge Restaurant, but I might try the Durham establishment.

    We regularly eat at Cafe Rouge at Centre Parcs and like the food. However the service we received at Metro centre was terrible. There was only 3 staff serving the entire restaurant, many customers were complaining about the time they had waited for drinks,food, bills etc. The staff were turning customers away as they just couldn't cope. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry but it took over 30 mins to receive our drinks and nearly an hour to be served our starters, again it took nearly 25mins for the starters to be cleared away when we had finished. We had our main course then could not be bothered to order a dessert as we knew it would take too long to be served. I know it's not the staff's fault as they were running around like headless chicken fending off customer complaints but someone is responsible for the staff rotas.
