We ate at Cafe Rouge tonight and it was superb. The manager greeted and seated us, he was really friendly with a great sense of humour and was great with the kids. The staff who saw to our meals were lovely and so friendly. They have a pretty extensive kid's menu, and very kindly brought us a pouch for our baby too! Our meals arrived swiftly, piping hot and massive portions. I had the 8oz sirloin, it was cooked to perfection and came with a mountain of chips. The desserts topped the whole thing off, extremely delicious. Dining at Cafe Rouge has rounded the week off perfectly and we'll definitely be returning. Many thanks to the staff!

Went for breakfast twice in a row, which was lovely. We were served by Ricardo both times who was incredibly friendly and the food was great.

Unfortunately lacking in Vegan options (just one available) for evening meals which is why we only had breakfast there.

The food was pretty good, came hot as it should be. House wine was very nice and the prices were not bad.
