With an elegant façade and a cosy interior with red banquette seating, Café Rouge Leicester features delicious French cuisine and an outdoor seating area. Leicester Rail Station is a 7-minute walk away.

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.

The French dining experience is not complete without the well priced wines and desserts at Leicester Café Rouge restaurant. Leicester Cathedral is within easy reach of Café Rouge.

    It was ok. Service a little slow, fillet steak was gorgeous but burgers were average.

    The staff were excellent, food not good. Mussels were poor.

  • ((((* 10 August 2017 by Mal Daley from Northants

    We chose a very wet day to go to Leicester shopping but we were pleased we had something to cheer us up at Cafe Rouge!
    It was our first visit to this restaurant and found the staff extremely pleasant,and when our meal finally arrived it was worth the wait.
    It was a little cool where we were dining but I'll put this down to the fact that I was already soaked and feeling a chill.
    The dish we chose was 'Rouge Burger' a 6oz Black Angus beef burger in a toasted brioche bun with frites. Enjoyed every bite

  • (((** 3 April 2017 by Eileen Pollard from Leicester

    We ordered the beef , lamb and fish. I found my beef ok but could have been more tender. The lamb although it did say it would be pink was very very pink not how we would have preferred it. Fish was tasty and served with nice bread.
    The lemon tart dessert was good and the eaton mess. Overall portions could have been more generous.
    Wines were nice.
    Service good.

    Great staff but the salad Nicoise was awful, the tuna tasted burnt and I sent it back, I was given another complimentary salad and refunded.

    We had a lovely meal at Cafe Rouge. The food was great and the restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere.
