Description: The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe...
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.

I came here after going to the gym and a 5 mile run.My sirloin was delicious and the spinach perfectly cooked.The place had a nice feel and though i was on my own the waiter found me a quiet corner to work.For dessert i had the chocolate brownie which was extremely good.

We started with the cocktails which were nice but not amazing. The food was just too huge to consider eating all and the lobster mac and cheese was just in a puddle of grease, tasteless and came with totally unnecessary chips

We stopped by the River Bar on Sunday for some cocktails and as ever the service was excellent. Friendly service, busy but not over-crowded, excellent cocktail knowledge from the bar staff. We have eaten here in the past too and the food was also very good – worth the slightly higher prices. Highly recommended.

Just popped in for drinks as the name suggests its a bar and restaraunt but it's really just a restaraunt. They were happy enough with us grabbing a table and having a few drinks though and whilst we were there i did see a lot of great looking food and happy diners! Will head back for dinner soon hopefully.

The location was a bit hard to find, but it was perfect! Right next to the river, staff were brilliant they took our coats and bags on arrival and was very polite. Food was amazing, I was dubious ordering the salmon because every time I have ordered salmon in other places it has been over cooked, but they cooked it... More
