A Taste of France in Cambridge

We just had a fishcake snack at lunchtime but it was terrific and very good value. All the food on display looked first rate and all home made too. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We will definitely go again.

We came in as a group for breakfast and things immediately started poorly with rude, abrupt and unhelpful service from a (French) girl at the counter. Apparently a mug of tea does not come with milk as standard as she acted as if we had kicked in the shins when we asked for a small amount of milk each. A... More

This is the first time we have been and we will be going again for sure. The place is very authentic and we went to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary, not a lot of seating but they do have more seating downstairs. The service is quite quick and attentive, the food was excellent. The food was unexpectedly good and presentation... More

Great selection of food - have been for both lunch and dinner here and the atmosphere and experience of both are great. The food is fabulous and well priced. Service can be a little hit and miss when busy but it's worth it for the tasty dishes. Always have fish on offer which I love!

Arrived far earlier than I expected at Cambridge station today so needed something to eat and drink before appointment. This is a short 5-0 min walk down the road from the rail station. Ordered a coffee and also eggs royale, good poached eggs with a french panache for this dish. Coffee good too.

we were in Cambridge on a busy exam-time Friday night, with plenty of champagne-guzzling students on the streets and in the pub where we thought we might eat. The loud crowd sent us elsewhere - hooray for Le Gros Franck we say. Very pleasant surroundings, excellent service and wonderful food, very French and also generous serves. Even a complimentary plate... More

Whenever we visit Cambridge we always pop into this welcoming café for an hot drink and a breather. It is quite a walk from the Rail Station to the town centre so this makes an ideal place to pause. We have not as yet tried the food but it always look appetising and we shall do so, to be sure.

If you've not had dinner and have to pick people up from the train station, this place which is within walking distance is a pretty decent choice for a meal if you plan well. They are part of a mini-conglomerate of eateries in the same area (they also have a steak house and a sausage stall) and serve French-styled cuisine.... More

My wife and I had eaten here (the evening restaurant) a few times, sometimes with friends. You can expect reasonably good food but overpriced drinks and wines. On the last occasion however, we tried a wine and asked for it to be changed. Management refused (they also refused to taste it). We ended up walking out before our final course... More

Needed somewhere to sit and eat for nearly an hour. Fell upon here by accident. Wonderful varied menu, and lovely staff. Would visit again if in area.
