Cafe Rouge - Bournemouth

67-71a Seamoor Road, Westbourne, Bournemouth, BH4 9AE

Café Rouge has over one hundred branches throughout Britain all offering a wide range of dishes drawn from the French cuisine. Slightly less than half their branches are in or close to London. Almost inevitably the décor and design of each restaurant differs from the others, but there is a general curtsy towards La France. Many restaurants do an excellent breakfast, or shall we say petit dejeuner, at which such delights as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on toasted brioche, croque Madame, croissants and pain au chocolat make welcome appearances, and to their credit the English traditional gets top billing. An array of small dishes takes in pulled pork pâté with French bread, and spicy beef and lamb sausage with harissa mayonnaise.

Many restaurants do an excellent breakfast, or shall we say petit dejeuner, at which such delights as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on toasted brioche, croque Madame, croissants and pain au chocolat make welcome appearances, and to their credit the English traditional gets top billing.

An array of small dishes takes in pulled pork pâté with French bread, and spicy beef and lamb sausage with harissa mayonnaise. Salads and pasta feature largely, as do baguettes and croques. Quick dishes, ideal for lunch, include slices of saucisson and cured pork loin with French bread.

Moving on to more serious stuff we find steaks, an 8oz bavette and thin cut rib eye, with a choice of béarnaise or peppercorn sauce. No French menu would be complete without the poulet jaune grille, pan-roasted breast of corn-fed chicken served on a warm taboulé of bulgar wheat and a medley of roasted vegetables with minted crème fraîche, or a steak frites before moving on to the crème brûlée, or the tart tatin. Almost invariably the coffee tastes like coffee should, something that sadly can all too often still not be said of our English restaurants, who depend too much upon technology and too little on the acquisition of a certain flair for this important conclusion to a meal.

By now we all know that the French, despite their distinctive habits when it comes to matters of satisfying the inner man, maintain a miraculous longevity of life. This is generally attributed to a number of causes, of which a measured consumption of decent wine is foremost. Café Rouge, you may be pleased to hear, encourages this with a well-chosen selection of French wines. Their prix fixe lunch and meals for children, both at a very reasonable figure, also offer excellent value.

Their Website will keep you updated on menu changes, news and other competitions and offers from the Café Society.

REVIEWS OF Cafe Rouge - Bournemouth

Sandra Griffin (15 April 2010)

I love the Cafe Rouge in Westbourne. I have been there twice and it has been excellent both times, especially the duck - gorgeous. Even my husband liked it and that's saying something! I have also been to the one at Victoria which was excellent and the staff were fantastic. Even had a free dessert because the Restaurant Manager fancied me! Hope to be going again next week. Fantastic!

Gypsymoth (25 October 2007)

I have been going to Cafe Rouge at least once a week for about six years now. The staff are mostly French and Polish with the odd Turk, etc thrown in for good measure. They all speak excellent English and are very friendly and accommodating! The excellent manager is English. The great thing with the overall atmosphere is, it's just like being in a French Cafe/Bistro. I love it and the food is OK, too. As for the wine, try the Anjou Blanc, it's superb. Overall: I give it nine out of ten. Ten, if the prices dropped a bit. Oh, I took two elderly folk there on wheelchairs and they loved it too.
