Met with old friends for lunch at Cafe Rouge. Louisa, our waitress, was excellent - very friendly, helpful, guiding my husband, who eats no dairy nor meat through the menu. Even asked the chef to make a non-dairy Eton Mess - which had extra fruit to make up for the lack of cream and definitely helped towards his 5 a... More

We received a reasonably warm welcome. It was noticeable that many tables were not cleared so had to wait for the table of our choice to be cleaned. Decided to order a sharing platter as a starter and on arrival was underwhelmed by its content. £13.95 for five, (which was odd for two people) slithers of bread, a panakin of... More

Over-priced, and generally an underwhelming experience. Even though we pre-booked, no table had been prepared and when we were invited to sit down the table was dirty from previous service. The best quality was that the restaurant was fairly empty so we had an area to ourselves which with young chldren was a bonus. Not all menu choices were available... More

We were able to choose our table during a morning shopping visit. Justin had the very table set for us as promised. He was attentive, had good suggestions and great food - obviously has a good team in the kitchen. It was Justin's second week as manager and we felt sure he'd make a difference!

Couldn,t find another restaurant open in Tenterden Sunday night. But no matter, we,d choose this place anytime for fast, friendly and professional service. Menu French, obviously. We had steak, good, and chicken, v. good. Various more adventurous dishes were on offer. Wine list mostly French.

Was very disappointed. Popped in quickly with a friend as we were craving something sweet. Simply ordered desserts, but it took over twenty minutes to arrive. Could see the server notice we still had nothing and went to check. Soon she came out with the desserts, but weirdly the chocolate fondant was almost cold by the time it got to... More

The restaurant itself was very nicely decorated and had a very comfortable atmosphere. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious. Our compliments to the chef. The food arrived at our table within 20 minutes though this may have been because it wasn't very busy at the time. The lady who served us was friendly and chatty - recommending things on... More

Greeted by a rainy cold morning we fancied a 'special breakfast'​ which would suffice as lunch too. Arriving at Cafe Rouge 11:30 am we were warmly welcomed and the order was taken promptly. You can have a any breakfast, plus a hot drink, plus a fruit juice for £9.95, so i opted for the full English, tea and tomato juice.... More

Came in for lunch on a busy Saturday and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or attentive, 4 adults and 4 young kids were all looked after superbly well and all of the food was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend 👍🏼

We enjoyed a lovely family meal last night and our waitress, Louisa, made the experience extra special. We would definitely visit again.
