Dined here last night with my girlfriend, was a belated Valentines meal. We choose to dine here as the menu had a good range of gluten free options. Cafe Rouge is easy to find in the middle of Leicester near the Highcross shopping centre with plenty of parking nearby. Inside, the restaurant was nicely decorated as are most chain establishments...

Fantastic service from Marius. Had a wonderful time, will definitely be back soon! We came for a drink after work and Marius put a smile on our face straight away. Perfect way to start to weekend.

You are prepared to wait for your food if it is freshly prepared BUT beyond a certain time it becomes unacceptable and is poor customer service. Today we had to wait far too long for our food to be served . Having had our main course we asked for the dessert menu . We eventually asked for our bill because... More

Called in here for the first time whilst shopping in Leicester, this was on a Saturday afternoon and the place was exceptionally busy. We were soon seated and ordered our food. The food took a while to arrive, but it was well worth waiting for.

We were a family group of 12 in Leicester for the rugby. From the minute we arrived until we left the service was excellent, by Marius. Most of us chose from the very reasonably priced Valentine Menu. The food was very good. We liked the venue and atmosphere.

So me and my partner had finished our shopping and were actually heading for another restaurant but they had a 20min wait to be seated! It's a Saturday lunchtime and we had their lunchtime deal with starter and main for £12.something. With such a bargain on offer we treated ourselves to wine and a beer and if you want a... More
