Description: The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.

Really good food, chips properly done and steaks nicely presented and seasoned as they should be. Thought it was good value with a couple of cocktails each. Be back

We held a 21st birthday dinner party at the River Bar, Steakhouse and Grill in Cambridge for sixty guests. The support and service of the staff in preparing for the event and "on the night" was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and all the guests were well looked after, with delicious food and good wines all sensibly... More

Five of us ate here on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is part of The Varsity Hotel & Spa. The entrance to just the restaurant is slightly odd - it is down a narrow side alley, and then up a flight of stairs. We had not booked and just went into the restaurant on the off chance that they had... More

We went here for a work Christmas do. We pre ordered food weeks ago and were specifically told that they could cater for a coeliac(me!). I chose the chicken. When it came it did look nice but was smothered in a sauce, I think BBQ. No sooner had it arrived then I was told I could not eat it as... More

We had previously visited The Roof Terrace of The Varsity Hotel & Spa, so our expectations were naturally high. We had also tried to make a reservation at this restaurant for quite some time, but it had always been fully booked. So, was this another positive sign? The restaurant is in a prime location on The Quayside overlooking the River... More

This whole experience was surprisingly disappointing. We had a table for four which was too small and the whole dining room is cramped.The bread was not very fresh. The salmon main course was overcooked and tough. The salad was unimaginative and also arrived with dressing even though we had requested it without. The waitress then denied there was any on... More
