Looking for creative bridesmaid proposal ideas, or maybe a classy London restaurant to host your hen do? Cafe Rouge is now offering free-flowing prosecco on Friday nights when you dine on its evening set menu. We went along to try it out…
Bridal Parties can now Enjoy Free-Flowing Prosecco at Cafe Rouge
You’re getting married, so what better excuse for a few glasses of fizz with your girlfriends?
Whether you’re looking for a swanky spot to propose to your bridesmaids or a classy dining experience for you and your hens – Cafe Rouge’s latest offering is sure to add some sparkle to the end of your working week.
To celebrate its 30th birthday year, the iconic French bistro is now offering free-flowing prosecco when you dine with their set menu on Fridays – and if fizz isn’t your scene, your two-hour free-flowing slot also includes Stella, mocktails and soft drinks.
Seems too good to be true? Here at Wedding Ideas, we thought we’d give the experience a go for ourselves (purely for research, of course), and see if it lived up to the hype.
Thankfully, we were in no way disappointed. Prosecco servings were very generous – we managed four glasses each in the two hours we had there – and the waiting staff seemed only too happy to keep us topped up throughout the evening; we didn’t have to ask once.
The set menu options surprised us, too; typically limited in some restaurants, Cafe Rouge had a brilliant mix of everything – from smooth chicken liver pâté to cheese and onion soufflé and beetroot tatin; and that was just the starters.
We began with a flavoursome soupe à l’oignon, served with sourdough croutons and Emmental cheese, followed by a gorgeous medium-rare Black Angus rump steak, which came with frites, garlic butter and bearnaise sauce.
For the finale, it was all about the caramelised vanilla crème brûlée, accompanied by a delectable almond tuile – though I’ll admit that the treacle tart on the menu almost swung me.
All in all, the experience had more than exceeded our expectations – the fizz particularly – and at just £29.95 each, we agreed that it was certainly great value for money, too.
