Went to Cafe Rouge for the first time in years. We were very disappointed in the food. I had chicken burger with salad and it was ok but nothing special. My friend ordered steak and chips medium to well done. When the steak came out it was too rare so we sent it back. They asked if we minded putting same steak back on the pan which we didn't. When it came out it was very well done on the outside but still rare in the middle. Chips were soggy aswell so we sent it back. I think we got one apology between the waiter and waitress. They then offered us both a complimentary dessert which we accepted. Desserts were lovely but we would have rather had nice food all the way through the meal. Woyld not go back and wpyld not recommend it

After arriving here at around 11:10, there was no one in the restaurant or bar so we had to seat ourselves. We then waited 10 minutes for a menu. After finally order food and drinks the drinks took 15 minutes to arrive! The food was the worst part, after waiting for 35 minutes the food arrived. Which was annoying because people who arrived after us revived their food ages before. Also there was only about 5 tables in the restaurant! How can a fully trained kitchen not cook for 6 tables? My dads smoked salmon eggs Benedict arrived cold and with a stale muffin. Additionally my mum and I had a full English breakfast which arrived cold. My mum also asked for her eggs to have hard yolks, but received them runny. We couldn’t be bothered to send them back because they took so long to arrive!
The service was awful, no one checked up on us, we seated ourselves and it took ages to order. I must note there was only really one girl in the restaurant - who looked like she was doing everything alone. We felt sorry for her. This restaurant needs more staff and quite frankly a better more efficient kitchen.

Have had issues before with dinner bookings but you could at least always rely on a tasty quick snack - not any more. Despite only 11 people in on Wednesday lunchtime we were in there for over an hour. When the food came - croque monsieur/madame we were hungry so just ate it but it soon became apparent there was a problem with the recipe. The mustard was so strong that by the end our eyes were watering and throats burning. We told the waiter this when he cleared our plates and his initial reply was that we were wrong however after checking with the kitchen he did confirm that actually instead of mustard and mayonnaise they had just used mustard. Apparently it was a new menu that the chef was unfamiliar with!

Visited this morning. In a bit of a rush was served by Hannah who gave excellent service and got our orders served perfectly and quickly. Excellent fresh food and drinks. Served with a smile.
My only criticism would be that a traditional English breakfast should have a traditional English sausage.
Well done Hannah.

This restaurant used to be so good, but today at lunch we waited for over an hour for our food to arrive and in the end gave up and left. Very poor
