A range of French dishes await diners at Café Rouge Hertford. Quaint and cosy inside, Café Rouge has an al fresco area to dine outside and watch the shoppers go by.

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.

A 5-minute walk separates Café Rouge from Hertford Castle, and a variety of local shops are just around the corner.

    Staff were eager for us to leave as we were the last in the restaurant by 21:30.Not very professional.

    We enjoyed this latest visit to CR making use of the 50% discount vouchers we had been given at our previous CR visit (Bury St Edmunds).

    The on-line booking was smooth but I needed to check one point on the phone re the validity of my voucher. On our visit I realised that this had been resolved by the manager himself who was charming, helpful and rather impressively remembered speaking to me on the phone. The staff who served us were also very pleasant, attentive and helpful. Couldn't fault them.

    We like eatling at CR generally and have visited a number locally. Because of the design they all can be a little draughty if you dine near the door. On this occasion we were given a choice and sat at the far end of the restaurant although midway through our meal a rather noisy party took the next table which rather destroyed the ambience of our romantic meal with their unnecessarily loud conversation.

    The menu provides a very good choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner and would be excellent any time of the day. The meal was unrushed but we felt there was a slightly long wait for attention after the main course, i.e. ordering and waiting for dessert and paying the bill. I like to have the bill promptly after it's clear we have finished eating without asking for it. I like the waitressing staff to ask if I would like the bill rather than having to chase this up. That can be frustrating and delay the end of even a leisurely meal.

    Overall we loved what we had and will certainly be returning in the next month. CR has become one of our preferred places to eat and whilst each one is slightly different the standards are consistent and without hesitation I recommend a visit.

    As usual we had a very pleasant time at the Hertford restaurant on Saturday - the staff are very good and we like the atmosphere of the restaurant generally. We had your lovely sharing board to start and then both had boullliabase which is a treat as it would take ages to make at home. Everything was fin e.
