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.
