Picture yourself wandering down the world-famous Champs Elysées, pausing at the window of a warm and inviting bistro designed in decorative golds and rich reds. The aromas emerging from the kitchen draw you inside and, before you know it, you have spent an afternoon wining and dining Parisian style. It is this kind of relaxing eating and drinking experience that café Rouge has so expertly recreated on our shores.

It is worth hopping out of bed early to experience café Rouge's unique breakfast menu. Try smoked salmon croque with a Gruyere cheese topping, baguette aux saucisses, and, for a real taste of the Continent, there are pastries and warm filled croissants aplenty. The lunch and dinner menu offers something for every possible eventuality. The plats rapides are ideal for a break from hitting the shops, with quiche Lorraine and salmon fish cakes just two options for a lunch on the move, while sandwiches and salads provide even more choice. If you have a little more time, opt for a full three-course meal. Moules de café Rouge are a classic Gallic way to start a meal; and moving on, choose tasty duck confit with tangy orange liqueur sauce, French beans and creamy Dauphinois potatoes, or salads that dispel the myth that they offer a less hearty meal option. From les grillades section of the menu, and transporting you to the heart of the French countryside, is the cote de boeuf.

But café Rouge would not be a true representation of the 'bistrot' without an exceptional wine list - they have a staggering range of quality wines, all of which are available by the glass or bottle. After all that indulgence, what better way to round things off than with a classic dessert' Tarte tatin and creme brûlée are both perfect for those with a sweet tooth, and the assiette of French cheeses is ideal for lingering over with a bottle of something red. This is pure gastronomic escapism.
