Description: A taste of France without the ferry! We've brought the continent to you at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth Harbour. Soak up the sea air and enjoy some classic French fare. There's a large seating areas for big groups and small spaces simply perfect for that romantic get together. On warmer days you have to take advantage of the fabulous outdoor dining areas... a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some sunshine is just the way to while away the day.

We went there for lunch after booking a table on line, which was good. They advertise a two course meal for £12 each. When we went to order we wanted a main and a dessert, no the offer did not include a dessert so which ever dessert you wanted had to be paid for separately. I have to say our meal was delicious but it certainly did not make the deal clear. The waitress was lovely and understood our frustration. Enjoy if you go but be careful about any offers.

Took my wife here as she loves French food and it was amazing. Really busy Saturday but the staff were excellent and very attentive and the food was excellent. Good wine and beer and an decent and well portioned selection of desserts. Really was a memorable meal and can not thank the place enough.

Recently visited cafe rouge in Gunwharf Quays with friends. There was plenty of tables even with it being a bank holiday and was seated straight away.

Friends ordered from the main menu. One of which being cod. The cod arrived slightly warm even though the plate was very hot! So we asked for the Meal to be warmer. No hesitation with the staff they took the food back to the kitchen.

Whilst my self and others had our food the returned dish didn’t arrive until after we had eaten. As they cooked the meal from scratch which was good.

We got our bill and felt that we should have some discount due to one of our friends eating alone due to less than ideal temperature food.

We asked the management and they obliged with a 20% discount on the food.

To summarise a pleasant lunch from a standard chain restaurant.

Thank Arnswold

Experience some fine French food in a slightly chaotic but lovely surrounding. I must recommend the snails, and the fish.

Had a gift voucher for a 3 course meal with prosecco for 2people for a Christmas present. Today was our wedding anniversary so decided to use the voucher. Despite being a busy bank holiday the service was excellent and staff very attentive. The food was first class. Our first visit and will go again. We were very impressed.
