A good venue for a pre theatre dinner or a relaxed dining occasion.

We had a pre-theatre dinner at Cafe Rouge and couldn’t have been happy with the experience. The waiter was brilliant and made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent and arrived promptly. Drinks were reasonably priced and again served promptly. Would definitely recommend😀

Not a friendly greeting, staff had mixed up our booking and accused us of being late! I had proof on my phone of time and number of guests. Such a pity as Brunch was excellent.

Our table was ready and prepared. Food arrived in good time and everyone liked their choice. Unfortunately the chocolate mousse ran out but good value.

Good food and excellent service.Difficult to say too much as it was a very quiet evening .My one criticism would be that the meal went cold quickly as is was served on cold plates.Much hotter plates please .

We had supper before the theatre and were warmly welcomed. The 3 staff were attentive throughout. The food was delicious and the wine excellent. It was a lovely part of our 24 hours away. Thank you

Food was tasty and lovely and hot. Unfortunately there was an extremely noisy group on an adjacent table but once they left we were able to talk to each other. The Staff did not rush us thank goodness.

I often eat at Cafe Rouge & generally have the same items. This time I was disappointed in both starter & main courses. The crevettes were a little over cooked & the sauce lacked the depth of flavour expected. The sirloin steak was extremely chewy.
Service was very good.

Really enjoyed an early supper before the theatre. Portions were not too large and Service was excellent. We felt relaxed and in the right mood to enjoy the rest of the evening. It was good to enjoy our talking without overloud music.

Service & food were good though my potatoes were under cooked & so were my friends green beans. We did complain & were offered free coffees as compensation but as were going to the theatre we didn't have time to accept the offer - shame. Overall a good experience.

The staff were very welcoming and always on hand. Although I ordered the wrong dish for mains it was very tasty. However, with all our dishes we felt we could definitely have eaten a bit more. They were the size I would give to my grandchildren, so half way through the theatre performance I did feel quite peckish and could have quite happily stopped for a portion of chips on the way home!
What a shame, we have only just recently moved here and looked forward to our meal. There are plenty more options in Stratford though and that is something worth remembering.

Called in Saturday evening 6.30pm - the first warm day of the year. Café Rouge was quiet. We had 2 courses and a glass of wine - steak for me, fish for my wife. Steak was french medium (raw) but OK to eat. Service was a little slow but not too bad. We felt it was nothing special and quite pricey £67.00. Given the competition locally (Bistro Pierre) it will be some time before we visit Café Royal again.

We use cafe rouge quite regularly and we're not disappointed with the Stratford on Avon restaurant. The service was quick(perhaps a little too quick) and the food was of the usual standard. Good value for money really although the menu is not extensive and could perhaps do with a little revamp as it's a little bit heavy on the fish. But this may just be me as I cannot eat fish.

We had a Groupon deal and were. very pleased with the food - only negative comment is that the staff were too attentive - asking for orders without giving us time to read the menu!

We used a Groupon voucher and the meal was much better than we expected for what we paid - we have another for next week and will now make it a regular venue when we eat out.

Overall the food was very good. Bread took ages to arrive and there were delays in the kitchen so good took a long time to get there. Ambience and restaurant was lovely.
