Good experience this time, sometimes hit and miss. Food enjoyable apart from very undercooked vegetables. Young waiter Jack lovely.

With a realistic Parisian atmosphere, Café Rouge Loughton serves an authentic menu of French dishes. Enjoy the French cuisine in the al fresco dining area or in the private garden.

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.

With its red exterior setting it apart from nearby shops, Café Rouge – Loughton is an 8-minute walk from Loughton Tube Station.

    A Cafe Rouge meal for two was purchased as a present through Buyagift.com.
    We had made our minds up what to have through the menu section online. However, when we presented the voucher, we were informed that we have to choose from another menu. I ordered Moules, but was then informed they were off. Not impressed.

    Not impressed. Initial waitress was lovely then she disappeared without letting us know. Then we were served by whoever was passing at the time. Food was meagre. My companion asked for salmon to be well cooked but it wasn't. She also asked for vegetables to be separate from the salmon but the salmon was placed on top of the vegetables. The salmon was sent back and returned still unsatisfactory. A side order of roast butternut squash and beetroot was served looking as if it had been dropped!
    The restaurant was not very full and we became the only diners left. It was hard to hear my companions over the laughing and shouting from the remaining waiters who were obviously bored and waiting to go home.
    Not what I would call value for money at all! Big disappointment.

    We went for breakfast with the family, we also went the week before. Sadly both times there weren't enough pastries - no almond croissant and then not enough pain au chocolate. The first week I had three pieces of bacon with our pancakes, yesterday we only got two. Plates were cold which makes breakfast cold - my husbands eggs were cold. We didn't say anything as we didn't want to have to wait. Drinks are always lukewarm. Service was great the first week, yesterday was ok. We do love Cafe Rouge so will continue to go there and with a few tweaks it can be lovely.

    The dishes often don't quite match the menu e.g. the salmon disk I had. Nice ambiance and friendly staff. We will go back.

    The only negative part of the experience was the high noise level.
    With regard to service - it was rather slower than I would have liked BUT the person serving us seemed to have far too much to do. In spite of being over-worked, she was very pleasant.

    My booking was specifically for the Festive Menu and it was disappointing to find that the restaurant was unable to offer the full selection. The staff were apologetic, and seemed to indicate that I should have booked the actual dishes we required. However there was not any facility to do this on the booking websire.

    We enjoyed our evening to celebrate birthdays but not enough staff so service very slow. Need to change menu more often.
