Restaurant description

Traditional and inviting, the exterior of Café Rouge Hitchin complements the warm and cosy dining area. The Parisian atmosphere is boosted by the delectable dishes on the French menu.

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.

Set on the High Street, Café Rouge - Hitchin boasts an al fresco dining area and is within walking distance of high street shops.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Both dishes very enjoyable. Sirloin steak beautifully cooked, tender and full of flavour. Excellent service from staff. All helpful and friendly. Really liked the way I could check the allergen menu with the phone and had no problem for gluten and sulfite free options.

    I tried a new dish and really enjoyed it. My husband had one of his old favourites, but complained that the carrots were not cooked.
