First class food. Great service. Just like being in a little French restaurant. Close to the Botanical garden (station side) ideal for a drink or full meal. Good prices too

Had an impromptu dinner here with friends. It was okay overall but nothing spectacular. Service was fine but the menu was a bit challenging to figure out. As such it ended up costing us more that we expected. We were also disappointed by the wine selection.

Overpriced drinks, please can someone from the establishment enlighten me on why it costs 90p for a can of fizzy drink to take out, yet you charge £1.95 for same item if you are sat eating a meal?

We were only in Cambridge to watch our son perform at the club a few doors away so literally stumbled upon Le Gros Franck. Although there was only one waitress, her timing was spot on to the point where we felt neither rushed or neglected. The small menu means that the food is freshly cooked and the presentation and quality... More

Had a nice quick breakfast here. Wide selection of baguette and pastry, as well as English breakfast with tea and coffee selections.

Very cute little place conveniently near the rail station. Charming decor and a great selection of dishes that makes you want to try everything. Had the baguette with tea and came back for dessert after dinner. Small place, good for coffee or lunch.

Visited this place regularly when dating the (now) wife. It's a place best enjoyed during the day for coffee and a pastry, rather than somewhere to go for a meal in the evening. Ate there in the evening 2 or 3 times with service and food nothing to write home about. Had a a meat dish that actually smelled like... More

We had a lunch here and were pleased. Food is not that expensive, simple and very delicious. It's a nice place frequented by locals. Reccomend this for a quick lunch.

Disappointing breakfast - 20 minute wait for small order for 3 of us and dirty tables. Restaurant also cramped. Staff friendly though but it is a bit like a school canteen

This is a very pleasant, casual eating place. The set menu tends to be the best value for money in the evening in this unpretentious and friendly restaurant. The wine list is exclusively French, but far from over-priced with some unusual bottles on offer at reasonable prices.The menus are written in French with English translations, which was fortunate as our...
