Only stopped for a coffee but the service was warm, polite and friendly. Our table was clean and tidy as was the floor, even though they were very busy. The coffee was well flavoured, overall it was a good experience.

Food is always good, if not memorable but today the service was 1st class. Restaurant was buzzy and Jolante was everywhere at once, but that did not affect her service which was prompt and more importantly with s smile.

You'll love a visit to Café Rouge Loughton... fabulous French fare set amongst a beautiful landscaped outdoor eating area and an interior designed to transport you to a bistro in the heart of Paris. For larger parties there's a private room available, and on certain nights live music is organised. What could be better than sharing a bottle of your fave wine while enjoying your night away?
