The place catered very well for our young children. The food was superb for all the family. The service was excellent with my 7 year old even suggesting our waitress should be the head waitress! Thank you Cafe Rouge.

Popped in for a quick meal prior to a night at the theatre. Firstly, the staff were great. Our waiter from Kosovo (sorry sir, we didn't get your name) was brilliant. Very attentive, friendly and helpful. Credit to the restaurant. My wife had the salmon riselle (almost like a terrine) and enjoyed. it. I opted for the French Onion soup... More

A really helpful French waitress served us and we both enjoyed a tasty meal without having to wait. This is the first time we have ever been to a Cafe Rouge restaurant and we... More

Where do I start... servers were rude, waited 25 minutes to be asked if we even wanted a drink. They did have a set menu but this isn't just offered, you do have to ask for this! They got the drink wrong and the person behind the bar gave a tut when returned, i know this because a group of... More

We stopped here for lunch, we were put off by the manager loudly asking the waitress if we were eating, and get the impression would have been turned away if just having a coffee. People were positioned all over the restaurant waiting to be seated which was also very off putting. We chose cafe rouge for the fixed price menu,... More

We had dinner and everything in the menu sounded good, but the actual dishes are dull, undersized and a little overpriced.

For a little oasis of calm in the bustle that is Covent Garden, look no further than the our Wellington St restaurant.. cosy and with a lovely little Parisian feel, we've got a fantastic new food and wine menu perfect for a quick bite to eat or a leisurely dinner before a show. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! We're located just a few minutes away from Covent Garden and The Strand. The ideal location for a pre-theatre meal, a break from shopping or a leisurely coffee and a spot of people watching.
