We recently found ourselves in Cambridge as the result of a good friend being very ill & ending up in the Addenbrooke Hospital. On our 2nd week of going out for something to eat we felt that the patient had improved remarkably & our spirits were much higher. The Oak Bistro was selected as something a little bit special for...

This is a relatively small restaurant serving super food with excellent service. We chose The Oak Bistro based on Trip Adviser reviews. We reserved a table for 2 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were offered an early sitting @ 6.30 p.m. on the basis we vacated by 8.30. At that time few tables were taken. By the time we... More

Although quite small, the restaurant has presence and makes a visit feel like an 'occasion'. Lovely aromas float out from the kitchen and the food lives up to this promise.

Located at a major crossroad, opposite the main Catholic Church, this does not immediately strike one as a likely location for an excellent restaurant. However, once inside its cosy confines, they offer a varied menu and an excellent range of wines. It offers delicious food at most reasonable prices. Do not be tempted by the other hundred inferior restaurants one... More

For my money, this is the best restaurant in Cambridge. The food is absolutely first-class, the menu always interesting, the wine list excellent. Welcome and service faultless. And all this very reasonably priced.

I came across this restaurant by chance when surfing the net for somewhere to dine out in Cambridge. The restaurant more than came up to expectations. Very good food, beautifully presented and cooked, excellent service and a lovely ambience. I will be recommending it to friends and colleagues and will return when next in Cambridge. A special note of thanks... More

We went on a busy Tuesday evening at 7pm but got a table for 2. We were served quickly and had one lamb dish and one duck dish. The food arrived in a reasonable time and was really excellent. The lamb was pink and extremely tender, with a great flavour. The duck was crispy and fell off the bone. We... More

My girlfriend and I had wanted to try out the Oak Bistro for a while, and as soon as she had been offered a new job we jumped at the change to reserve a table to celebrate; any excuse right?! We went for a starter and a main each and both were delightful. My partner went for the truffle mushroom... More
