Visited Cafe Rouge this sunday 23rd April. The two waitresses were very good, it must be said but they were over worked with the cafe full, therefore unable to fully attend to all the diners. I ordered the mussels which was dreadful, tiny and over cooked. We also ordered steak which was tough. The desserts weren't very good either, obviously... More

There's a nice selection on the breakfast menu. We chose bacon and eggs on sourdough toast. My husbands request for his bacon 'not too crispy' was met. Both coffee and food was very tasty, but the toast pieces were small and all crust.

It may be that this restaurant is aiming at a very different demographic but both of our meals looked and tasted like something you'd rustle up for the kids tea. Not completely inedible but incredibly boring, lacking flavour and some of it looked suspiciously factory made (dauphinoise was a dry, sharply sided, solid square slab sitting in an oval bowl)....

I have to be honest, I'm usually not crazy about Cafe Rouge - a chain of 'French' restaurants that straddle London. I mean, theyre OK, but nothing to write home about. HOWEVER... the Cafe Rouge in Dulwich (note - not the one in Dulwich Village itself but the one a few minutes away closer to Dulwich College) breaks the mold.... More

Service very poor, food not bad, burgers were nice and meaty, my grandson really enjoyed his. Chicken escallope was o k, but the green garnish was rather withered. I thought the food was rather expensive for what we had, a little attention to presentation would help. The cranberry juice was watered down, the jug of water we asked for never... More

Popped in for lunchtime eats, the gaff was pretty empty around noon , but soon filled out. Must say the Food was very good, we all had steaks. I felt the service was fairly poor, no spoon with coffee, had to get up and ask for our own sugar. Steak Knifes should be put on the plates by the kitchen... More
