The quality of the food was very good. The service however was quite slow. The experience was very good value for miney. It is at a very central location in Maidstone.

Cafe Rouge on our visit was quiet so the ambience, busy environment buzz was lost, that said everything else worked. I will go again

Always enjoy it here although it's very expensive now and dining for two with a couple of a drinks exceeds £50-£60. Set menu good value. 10 olives for £3.50 is a rip off by the way.

The staff were very helpful. The food arrived promptly and was well-presented. We had a starter and main course and that was more than adequate. We did not feel like a dessert after that! Would definitely recommend to others.

My party of four decided to dine at Cafe Rouge in Maidstone to celebrate a family birthday. The Bread & Nibbles that we ordered were very tasty and went down well. For main course, three of us ordered fillet steak with fries and the fourth ordered breaded hake fillet with fries.
When the four meals arrived, all the fries were cold. We told the manager who said she didn't want to take the meals back and that she would order some extra fries. These eventually arrived after about ten minutes, which left the diner with the fish eating fish on its own before it too got cold and likewise for the people with the steak. One of the steaks was requested to be cooked medium, but when it arrived it was well done and all three steaks looked dry. It was almost as if the plates had been left on the side in the kitchen after dishing up and had been forgotten.
We all ordered a sweet, two of which were good. However the others, which were 2 x 2 scoops of ice cream for a costly total of £9 were literally dropped into a glass without even a tuile or other embellishment in sight.
We felt that the food was not very well presented. It could have been understandable if the restaurant was busy, but it was a long way from it. The staff were very friendly and obliging and the manager gave us a discount of £40, but the chef (I use the term loosely) needs speaking to or replacing. It was still a very disappointing experience on what should have been an enjoyable family outing in a restaurant whose prices are near top of the range for food that is mediocre.

Visited while on holiday in region. Warm welcome and excellent service from a team of waitresses. Every waitress was very attentive and the food was amazing. We had authentic French dishes which were all excellent. Thanks to all the staff for a very nice meal Ina friendly and relaxing ambience.

Unfortunately, the food was not as tasty as I wanted it to be. My starter of pate was delicious as were the other guest's starters but all four main courses were disappointing . Good attentive service from a young helpful waitress. May not be our choice of restaurant next time.
