Restaurant description

In the centre of Gunwharf Quays and surrounded by shops, Café Rouge Portsmouth serves traditional French cuisine in a light and spacious dining room.

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 ample seats and a relaxed ambience, the Café Rouge Portsmouth menu is affordable and caters for all French tastes.

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

    Table ordered on line was not available due to corporate bookings. We were seated by a lot of noisy people who were celebrating Christmas.

    Service was very relaxed - which suited my friend and I as we were there for a girls catch up night. Our main course was delicious - croque Madame - hot, generous filling, lovely chips. Dessert was really disappointing - we had tarte tatin - pastry that was positively anaemic, very little apple & caramel and lukewarm.
