Had lunch here last Sunday, it's an attractive bistro type restaurant, and well priced. The roast beef was lovely, but the roast potatoes were seriously undercooked (and fried) and the veg similarly overcooked and stone cold. Our waitress was lovely (she was throughout) and replaced it, plus an extra Yorkie and gravy, but I won't be rushing back. Roast dinners... More

OK I should have known better. Lamb cassoulet with lardons sounds wrong and it is. The lamb was OK, a little over but still pink and manageable once they gave me a steak knife. The beans were strangely firm but properly savoury. Just that the two together were ... weird. Friendly staff, decent table which is rare as a solo... More

Went to the cafe rouge in hertford. Honestly we were very surprised of a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Greek gentelman was taking great care of us, very attentive, food is good, the spring set menu is worth giving a try.

We booked the back of the restaurant for a retirement party on a Monday night. The staff catered to our every need whilst maintaining a professional and friendly service. We had very late arrivals, hungry ladies, a mixture of people wanting different things at different times, people changing their orders etc. Nothing was too much for them. We really appreciated...

Five of us ate there last month for lunch and had a selection from the comprehensive Menu. All of us enjoyed our meal: I had the Bouillabaisse and it was exactly as I expected. Two of my friends are Vegetarians and commented that they enjoyed the meal. Its a place for a lazy meal, as the restaurant enables one to... More

We went before going to the theatre and we're not disappointed. Menu varied with something for everyone. Service friendly and quick. Using either a gourmet card or voucher codes makes it a very reasonably priced dinner.

Occupying a prime location in the pedestrianised square, Café Rouge looks directly across to the cenotaph and is the ideal place to sit down, relax with a meal and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. A petit bit of trivia: during an outbreak of plague in 1563, the Parliament of England temporarily relocated from London to Hertford. To commemorate this, the square was re-named Parliament Square in the 20th century.
