Restaurant description

A stone's throw from both the Lyceum and Aldwych theatres, Café Rouge Wellington Street serves authentic French food in a prime London location.

Part of the UK-wide group of Café Rouge restaurants, a range of traditional French dishes such as steak frites, confit duck and beef bourgignon are on offer. Amongst the tempting lighter bites, try a tasty croque monsieur, breaded camembert with cranberry and redcurrant sauce, or a classic caesar salad. A good selection of French wines, many from lesser known producers, is on hand to accompany the dishes.

Breakfast at Café Rouge is also a classically French affair. Offering croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes, as well as hot chocolate, tea and an array of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

A popular choice for pre or post-theatre dining, Covent Garden Café Rouge also boasts outdoor seating which provides the perfect spot to watch the world go by.

    The waiting staff were a little brusque but we were given plenty of time to choose, even though it was so busy, and the food arrived promptly. My main of mussels was more than I could finish, but delicious. By contrast, my husband's steak was a little on the small side and came with fries OR salad, so he felt a bit cheated! We were a little disappointed that there were no freebies, eg bread or olives, like in EVERY French restaurant in France, so it felt less authentic, but we enjoyed our evening overall.

    The restaurant location was good as close proximity to where we were headed after eating. The deal was good value for money and the service was ok. My only problem was that the food was so obviously heated in a microwave that that ruined it for me and also that parts of it were stone cold. Would I eat there again? probably not!

    The moules marinieres and chicken caesar salad dish was delicious and so was the bread and butter pudding. Overall the food was amazingly good!!!

    Had a lovely meal here, really enjoyed my starter of garlic mushrooms and my main of beef bourguignon. Service was quick - the bramble spritz cocktail was delicious!
