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

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
