Been here twice, both times have been very good

I have eaten here twice with my parents when they came to visit me (I'm at the Uni), and both times the service and food have been very good. The desserts are particularly so, such as the chocolate mousse.

We went here for our anniversary dinner the last time. I had chicken with wasabi sauce and it was absolutely amazing. From starter to desert, the food was amazing. The whole evening was an experience to remember. I would definitely recommend.

Visited for afternoon tea. It's not really an afternoon tea place so we had apple pie - delicious!. While there I had a huge coughing fit and without asking a glass of water magically appeared in front of me. Very kind and attentive service plus apple pie was very good.

Went here with my girlfriend and another couple on a Saturday night. The location is fantastic of course - you're right next to the river Cam. As such, the restaurant is a little on the expensive side. They have some interesting dishes. The food though was quite good. Deserts really tasty! Drinks were also made very well and tasted great.... More

I really liked the atmosphere at Galleria - refined and tranquil, with a lovely view of the river. My Moroccan spiced chicken was perfectly balanced and very enjoyable. This was a great experience and I look forward to going back soon.

It was ok , maybe a bit above average , nice surroundings and nice little restaurant in Cambridge , food was ok but the menu didn't have a great deal of choice , I had steak which I would give 4 out of 10 , however some friends had fish and we're very happy.

Nice restaurant in ideal location on the river with good food and pleasant staff. Not very busy for a Saturday night before Christmas whereas other local restaurants were packed so not sure if we missed something.

Had an early supper to celebrate Christmas with colleagues. Nice meal, good service and not too expensive. Think that the menu is probably more appealing to women as there are plenty of light options. A little lacking in atmosphere. Good place for a girly get together, have visited before and will again.

We don't "know" Cambridge, so planned lunch at Varsity Hotel. Got there, found it closed for 'private party' (Friday lunch, three weeks before Christmas??!). Whilst shopping, asked a "local" for a recommendation and she came up trumps! Galleria was ideal for a non-Ask, non-Prezzo, non-Cote lunch though in the middle of all of those by Magdalen Bridge. "An independent among... More

I don't have anything specifically bad to say about the Galleria, I just found it rather underwhelming. The food was perfectly nice and was well cooked, but some of the flavour combinations felt a bit... try-hard? Slightly simpler dishes would have been just as delicious. The relaxed bistro atmosphere and the slightly-too-fancy food didn't quite match one another. That said,... More
