A buzzing, contemporary twist on the traditional French restaurant.

Café Rouge will be celebrating its 30th birthday next year, having been founded in London in 1989 by two foodies on a mission to recreate real French food and wine in a Parisienne bistro style setting.

Café Rouge


On Social Media:


Today we continue to recreate core classics like Steak Frites, Poulet Breton, Moules and Boeuf Bourgignon as well as croques, salads, baguettes – and a glass of French wine. Our chefs and our food are at the heart of what we do, and we use great fresh ingredients, traditional French cooking methods and classic Rouge recipes all day every day.
