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.

Great location with atmosphere. Excellent steaks, best I've had for a while. Pascuale was brilliant as our waiter. Good menu and wine list.

We hosted 21st birthday dinners on two consecutive years in the River Bar private room adjacent to cafe. The staff, food, service and atmosphere were outstanding, and we had two very memorable nights. We were able to have cocktails, speeches, cake etc in the private room - which is cosy, atmospheric and seats about 50 comfortably, and then spilled over... More

Very nice restaurant, good service and definitely worth a visit. My partner and I both had the surf and turf burger.. Half a lobster cooked to perfection and a huge burger. The cocktails were lovely and good choice of wine. Staff were lovely and even took up our drinks to the roof top bar to watch the sunset.

We thought we would pop in on a Sunday after noon after hearing good words about this restaurant. We got moved from seat to seat and eventually got put in a corner after asking for a vacant window seat. The first waitress we found a little rude and we were asked if we wanted tap water instead of the wine... More

We went to the restaurant on the 13th April for my partners birthday and the service was good as we were pleasantly greeted and made to feel welcome. The staff were very knowledgeable of items on the menu and assisted us in making our decision. We would recommend the steak which is uniquely cooked, big, tasty and well presented! We... More

Quite pricey but lovely location on the river - managed to get a window seat by reserving in advance, but the mezzanine floor probably had even better views! Am sure it would be lovely outdoors in the summertime! Salmon was a little underdone and I noticed the couple sitting next to us commented on the same thing. Otherwise very nice,... More
