Where is Michelin? Why are they not giving a Star to this establishment? I want to know why? The service is fantastic. Phil is an awesome and caring manager at the Oak Bistro. The food is fantastic. I had the Artichoke Soup for a starter which was so rich and creamy. The best soup I have ever had. The Salmon... More

It's not the fanciest of restaurants nor is it in the best of settings, sitting right on the busiest junction in Cambridge, but the food is very good as is the service. They have a good selection of wines as well. I would certainly recommend it. The duck is gorgeous!!!

Delicious food at very reasonable price. I ordered a 3-course set lunch menu. I was particularly impressed by its bread dipping sauce. Instead of olive oil, they blend the dipping with spices, tomatoes and herbs. I was served 3 kinds of bread. Each of them brought a unique taste when mixed with the dipping. Service wise, I was treated and... More

As a large party of women out on our Xmas beano I was very happy with the service and the food that we received I would expect that if it was a smaller group or a couple you would still get the excellent standard both in the food and the service.

I've lived in Cambridge 15yrs and never eaten at this venue - feel like I've been cheated ! Food and service was very good and reasonably priced. Will definitely go again.

My partner and I, along with another couple stopped for dinner in late December. The restaurant is not large, however, very comfortable and with logically placed tables to not make you feel like you are sitting on top of your neighbour. The restaurant was nearly full when we arrived, and more parties arrived while we were there. We were seated... More

Just clearing out my wallet and found the business card for this place. I originally visited in May. We booked the restaurant as a large group to celebrate a significant birthday. The staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They were very knowledgeable about the food and its origins - something important to us. They could advise wisely on a number... More

On arrival it's quite confusing where you have to go or if you've walked into the right door and the atmosphere isn't the most welcoming! You have to find your way around a maze of tables to find a staff member to allocate you to a table. In general it had a couples/large group atmosphere to it! Some staff members... More

Went on Saturday 20 December 2014, service good, food excellent and varied menu, ambience very bistro style and quiet despite being on busy road junction but cost enough £75 for two with shared starter and 2 glasses of wine.

The bistros was busy, but the service was excellent and the food delicious. My rare steak was just right, and the wine, from Nemea in Greece, went very well with the meal. Great ambience, will go again.
