We had a special offer on the Cafe Rouge Summer menu. Enjoyed starters of garlic mushrooms and mackeral pate. Main of tarte au saison was tasty. Husband had Pork Schitznel which was disappointing as not much flavour and very dry. Service was good even though the place was very busy. Quite nice environment although very warm - lacks aircon on a warm summer night.

Great location right in the heart of Chester. Booked this for a family meal out, on arrival our booking couldn't be found, despite this the staff found us a table without any fuss. Not the largest selection on the menu but something to suit everyone's taste, we ordered a variety of meals so I'm not going to comment on them all. I ordered filet steak which had to be returned because it was overcooked, in fairness I was offered a free dessert or a cost reduction by the waitress, pity that it was all forgotten when we were given the bill. Anyway despite this food is good, drinks menu is good but a little overpriced in my opinion. Good service, great location, I would return as had an enjoyable evening.

We enjoyed the Summer Set Menu very much indeed. It was my husband's birthday and we joined friends to celebrate. What a lovely evening. There was something for everone on the menu, the staff were charming and professional and the food was DELICIOUS. Thank you, Cafe Rouge, for a memorable birthday celebration.

Was lovely sitting outside in the sun.. ordered a chicken baguette, was just OK. Nothing spectacular, chips were extremely salty. I feel the meal was overpriced for what we got . Probably wouldn't return unless it was for drinks

Several options available.
This is usually our preferred stop for lunch, especially where our 18 and 22 year old daughters are concerned.
Called in with our American friends and one of our daughter's boyfriend.
Not as impressive as usual. Service was mixed from good to clueless. The food also received mixed reviews amongst our group but seemed distinctly average, and extra portions of food and drink once ordered were extremely slow at coming out.
Portion sizes seem reduced too. This will have to improve to get back in our good books again.
