I only come here because my family like the food. Food is usually fine but the service is consistently poor. It's been poor for years. This time the Food took 30 mins. Plates half cleared away and the rest just left here. Took two reminders...More

The Mrs and I have eaten at Café Rouge a number of times, and have not been disappointed in the food. The service is also OK. The onion soup is to die for, and very tasty. The only negative thing that I can say about...More

Cafe Rouge is one of those rarities, a chain that doesn't feel like one. The Hertford establishment is situated on Parliament Square and you could almost believe you were in Paris when you go there. It is charming and well-patronised from morning to night. This...More

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.
