In the walled city of York, Café Rouge serves French cuisine within a glorious building featuring glass frontage and a vibrant red colour scheme. York Minister is just around the corner from Café Rouge.

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.

Café Rouge – York allows diners to take in the atmosphere of York's side streets with al fresco dining, whist enjoying an affordable French dish.

    Was a little disappointed to be honest; the staff were lovely & friendly
    The food was just 'OK'; we were booked for 6pm and there were some dishes already off the menu, both soups, garlic bread, salmon & the bouillabaisse (as the restaurant was fully booked all night, one took it that the same applied throughout the day)
    Don't get me wrong when I say the food was 'OK', it was quite tasty but it was the basic things like, checking the cutlery isn't dirty, whoever cooked the chicken may have forgotten it was cooking and had burnt (I'm all for crispy but on my breast) the edge of the plates were very greasy, nothing that a wipe round wouldn't have gone amiss. I noticed the lady next me had the same dish and had left quite a lot of burnt chicken too. I had more sauce, which was a bonus as that was tasty
    Basic stuff really but as I said earlier, the taste was there and appreciate the volume of customers that will have been; however, its a busy restaurant and these are standard things really
    Not sure I would recommend, but would maybe say go and try, but not as a recommendation, after all, each to their own!

    My wife, two friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal Saturday 11 November. We booked 2 courses for £12.95. Each course was very good, full of flavour and well presented. I enjoyed the mushroom vol-au-vent and chicken chasseur. Three members of the party decided to add a dessert for an extra £3 which they also enjoyed. The service, by our excellent waitress, was attentive without being obtrusive. The offer represented good value and we are looking forward to returning.

    We were very disappointed with the experience. Our starter was not very hot and when our main course arrived we had to call the waiter back to tell him the food was cold. It was served on cold plates which didn't help either. We said we wanted replacements but when it came back it was the same dish re-heated. And still not as hot as we would have liked. The waiter was full of apologies but no effort was made to compensate for our disappointment.

    Terrible experience. We had to wait for long time to order then they told us did not have many items available! Poor poor poor.

    The restaurant staff were cold, there was no conversation or friendly chat.

    Great food

    Excellent professional service from all staff, especially a young man who may have been head waiter as he was in the salon/bar. We were all impressed that he didn't use a pad/pen to write down our order and also remembered who ordered each dish.
    We all ate differently and enjoyed our dishes - no complaints about anything. Of particular note we're the champignons, the boulabaise and the confit du canard. I enjoyed the creaminess of the salmon rillette so much, I wish I could have it for mains too!
    Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant, made better by the attentive staff. One could easily forget that this particular restaurant is part of a chain!
