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...

This is really two restaurants - I have not been for dinner, when the prices are much higher and the offer very different - but for lunch it is a great place for a cheap and tasty meal. Good hearty French fare. The steak frites are always good, as is the salad bar, but there is always a wide range... More

Friday night. At 18.00 restaurant empty. I was seated with my wife at one of the ground floor tables. Ordered a glass of wine and a juice. Waiter came back with a full bottle of wine and a pineapple juice on a tray and filled my 250 ml glass to half. Never been used to be served wine by the... More
