I can't comment on the food as I only ever go in Cafe Rouge for coffee with a friend, however, the ambience is always nice and the staff pleasant. There are a few minor issues with the general decor needing a bit of repair here and there but in general I like the slightly bohemian feel of the place. It's nice to be able to sit next to one of the large windows watching people go by as we put the world to rights. I also like the fact that even though there are just two of us at a table and we manage to make two coffees last a couple of hours, staff never try to rush us or make us feel that we have to order anything else. The toilets are up a steep staircase to the back of the restaurant and are clean.
