Although Café Rouge always reminds me of its heyday back in the 90s it's still a pretty decent place to visit for drinks and a bite if you're passing. The traditional French bistro style decor inside has a warm cosy feel and still works! Service...More

Having visited the restaurant several times at breakfast time ive found the English breakfast, if weather permitting, in the garden, a real treat Quality food cooked as requested and good service.

Staff are very friendly and efficient, especially Nuno. The decor is great although probably typical CR. However, the coffee and pastries are always excellent but for me the staff are the real drawcard. Recommended

This branch is in the lovely village in Loughton. Quite a large restaurant but good atmosphere. I am vegan but always manage to find something to eat here. The new tagine is delicious.

Early morning visit. Took 10 minutes plus to be served. They got orders wrong. Hugely embarrassed to have recommended meeting a customer here

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?
