Restaurant description

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.

    Really enjoyed the delicious beef bourginon and my partner loved the escargots and hake. Great food and service.

    Had an enjoyable meal. Ordered sirloin steak rare, it was really cooked medium but I didn't complain. Aside from that the food was good as was the service.

    We were a party of seven having our monthly meal out. Service was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I can particularly recommend the bouillabaisse. Like most chains the food is overpriced but we had a vouchercode which made the prices about right.

    We were outside and the service was poor. Mains were served and then we were left. No table cleared. After half an hour we had to go inside toget desserts. The restaurant was not busy at all.

    Great service, l booked on line day before, so easy. Food was excellent, would definitely recommend. I had barbeque chicken salad, they did forget to add the avocado, l pointed it out, the recovery was excellent so no problem. In my opinion if a recovery is done well on any mistake that is what counts.

    The food was excellent well cooked and presented. However the service was substandard. I asked for water when we ordered our food and had to call different waiters to remind them. We didn't get the water until we were mid way through our main course. The waiter had to be asked more than once for cutlery, there were errors on our order and we were nearly charged for the items we didn't get. The waiter didn't come to our table enough to replenish drinks which meant we didn't spend as much as we would have if the service had been better.
