We came here with family, we had a group of 4 adults, 2 teens, and 3 kids. The food options for adults and kids were great and the prices were reasonable. The waiter was fantastic and was quick to meet every need of ours, while entertaining with a few jokes :-) it was a really pleasant experience. Will go again!

This is red inside with checker table clothes. Waiters seem to be french (or put on good show). Wine good. Food decent but not Paris. I would go back but not number one choice

Delicious food and wine at a very fair price plus excellent, attentive, good-humoured service. We went there two nights during our 5-day stay. I love the sentiment on our table: stay as long as you like--the table is yours until we close.

Came here for dinner during short weekend in the city and found the food and service much better than anticipated, based on previous experience of a Cafe Rouge elsewhere. Lamb cassoulet was exactly as described on the menu and was excellent. Short walk from city centre but well worth it. Would return.

I came here with my partner in a Saturday night while visiting Oxford for the weekend. Slightly outside of the main town area but easy enough to find, about 15 min walk from the centre. We booked a table in advance to be safe but prob could have got a table without reservation judging from just a few empty tables... More

We have celebrated my friend's birthday in Cafe Rouge. The food is simple, but great and the staff is very nice and helpful, also has a great knowledge about wines. We had a few cocktails when we got there and they were all delicious. I had the chocolate fondant as a dessert, it was perfect!

The menu is very basic although if you are a traveller and want to try out typical UK food - this is the place for you. Atmosphere is nice, service was acceptable. Very beautiful interior parts: windows, doors and walls in the restrooms.

With an interior inspired by the rich history of rowing and punting, there's a fantastic boat-style booth as well as a conservatory, large private dining room and a gorgeous outdoor dining area perfect for warmer months!
