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

The food was outstanding, we had three courses all of which were of a very high standard and very tasty. Recommendation would be Moroccan Chicken, the Beef, the Lamb and the Sea Bass Fillet. The only negative would be the initial noise but this subsided through the evening. The staff were very attentive and experienced. I will definitely visiting again... More

This is in a great location next to River Cam and Magdalene bridge . The restaurant is light and airy and well lit. It has a comprehensive menu at a reasonable price. We asked for a bread basket and were disappointed with a miserable cut up white baguette. The mains were fine. Only two beers on offer San Miguel or... More

My family and I visited one raining tuesday after my graduation. The two male staff that looked after us were very welcoming and attentive. Our food was scrumptious; exactly what i needed after running across Cambridge in the pouring rain! I can highly recommend the risotto stuffed peppers, and I also managed to try all my families' meals all of... More

Went here at the end of September on a Saturday - early evening. The food was absolutely delicious! I could have done with a little more but then I do have a big appetite - for most people it would probably be fine. It isn't the cheapest of places, but you pay for a lovely setting - we sat out...

The main course was pleasant (I had the crab claw linguini), but the dessert (chocolate mousse pyramid) was very bland. Both were rather small portions, and very over priced. My friends mostly reported the same - small portions, tolerable quality, excessive price. The waiting staff were also less than pleasant. Especially when we pointed out that they hadn't charged us...

I start with the most important point: food which is nicely done, portions are decently sized and reasonably priced. Everything else is not that good: wine - overpriced, cocktails watery and expensive, service disoriented, setup needs unification and maybe some improvements. And for the love of God please change your paper, dirty, filthy menus!
