The food was delicious (I'd definitely recommend the onion soup and the Rouge Burger with Camembert). The service was quick and friendly. Overall it was a lovely place to have lunch.

Lovely meal, I could live on the Croquettes De Legumes only! Never take them off the menu! Kinga and team, as always, provided a friendly atmosphere with excellent service.

We have been in this Cafe Rouge many times. It has lovely food as well as superb service. Kinga has always time to talk to us and make our daughter smile. Our visit this time has not been different. Thank you.
