I can't understand this place. I've been 4 times now. First time was for lunch it was very poor. Second and third times were for dinner which is some of the best food I've ever eaten the evenings were outstanding. The last time was for lunch and again it was poor. I had potato and watercress soup which just didn't... More

My wife and I ate here last night after a trip to the cinema across the road. It was early evening so not very busy. The menu might not be to everyone's taste, but being a Michelin Star restaurant they should be flexible. We saw one couple come in sit down have some water then leave ?? However, we found... More

I booked a table for my partners birthday - I wanted a Michelin starred restaurant and Cambridge is sadly lacking in this style of restaurant. We were warmly greeted and took advantage of having a drink at the bar before being shown to our table. The bar staff were attentive and bar area was clean. Our first table we were... More

Everything was perfect about this restaurant apart from the room. It feels as though you are eating in the lobby of a soulless 3 star hotel. The food was great. The service was attentive without being annoying. The wine list extensive and fairly priced. Would go back, but I think they should think about relocating to complete the dining experience.

Booked for a lunch menu, asked for a dairy free option as well. The service was excellent, since the booking, and also during the entire meal: they prepared a dairy free alternative of each course, included the amuse-bouche. As stated in the title, we went for the fixed price menu: on top of that some amuse-bouches have been served as... More

Came here for a friend's birthday lunch just before Christmas. My husband ordered a diet coke when we arrived and when he received it the glass smelt terrible, like stale dirty dishes. This was quickly changed and the next glass wasn't as bad. Once we ordered our food the smelly glass was forgotten about. We went for the set lunch... More

Husband and I went out for birthday meal treat and opted for the surrise menu with wines. Everything we were presented with was truly delicious, both food and wine exceeded out expectations. Service from staff was very attentive, especially from the young wine somelier. A truly enjoyable experience - especially ......... well everything really!
