A perfect resting place for a spot of lunch on the terrace watching the punters pass by on a sunny afternoon. Great service and great wine complemented by well prepared fresh tasty food. A Most enjoyable and relaxing afternoon! Next time - dinner shall be booked!

Being located by a central bridge and overlooking the river is this restaurant's greatest asset. I ordered the following: A glass of Sangiovese: good Olives and bread: skip. Canned, pitted olives and bland bread Field Mushrooms with Goat cheese and Kinoa: the mushrooms were very good but the Kinoa was dry and flavorless. Chocolate ice cream: supermarket grade. Service was... More

We were visiting Cambridge for the first time with friends and our 16 week old daughter. Having just been punting we spotted Galleria and was luck enough to get a great balcony seat. The lady that served us was great and the food was good and they happily accepted our daughter into the restaurant. Towards the end of the meal... More

In the centre of Cambridge on the river where punts can be hired and the tourist is in abundance is "Galleria". This is an exception to the abundance of cheap and cheerful food outlets with a first come first served policy. At "Galleria" it is possible to book a table in advance, enjoy genuine cooked to order dishes and a... More

The food was very good, everything cooked to perfection, the location is by the side of the river, although we had to eat indoors as there were no available seats outside, but this may have been a blessing as it was a extremely hot day and the temperature inside was very comfortable! I would reccommend this restaurant.

Centrally located with a lovely terrace on the river, the Galleria was a great find. Thoroughly enjoyed the monkfish, and the steak was cooked exactly as I asked. Lovely selection of desserts and friendly staff to top off a lovely dining experience.

My Wife and I dined here in August 2013 for our wedding anniversary whilst on holiday in Cambridge, we turned up with no reservation on a Saturday evening to find they had one table left on the lower outside balcony. The meal and service was faultless friendly staff & a good menu with good food but the location really made... More

Went shopping with daughter into City and wandered into Galleria for lunch. Fortunately sat on the outside gallery overlooking river CAM, with cool breeze watching people punt by in their boats below as we enjoyed a very good lunch. It is a narrow balcony so comfortable for 2 and at a push three on a table. Service was functional and... More

Me and my other half only came here for drinks and desserts, but wish we'd had lunch too. People around us seemed to be eating some lovely things! We didn't have any trouble about sitting outside on the balcony, as other reviewers mention, and we found the staff really lovely. A great little spot for people-watching and observing punting hilarity... More
