We had a table booked for my 65th birthday and decided to do the 10 course tasting menu with accompanied fine wines. The table was booked for 8.30pm but we did not get to sit down until about 9 10. Food was good until the main course, it was beef and mine was 'chewy' not what I would expect from... More

I have eaten in my fair share of top notch restaurants but this isn't one of them, It was ok but not great and certainly not what I expect from a Michelin Star restaurant. The service was fine, the venue not very atmospheric but what do can you do with a restaurant in a shop front along a busy road.... More

I thought this was definitely up there as one of my favourite ever meals. I've been to a several Michelin star restaurants this year, often they can disappoint but this did not. Very good price for 3 courses at lunch so did not break the bank. The food was well presented, fresh, well seasoned and interesting. It is a bit... More

We ate here on a Saturday night after a day of sightseeing in Cambridge. From the initial greeting, the staff were very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. We were fortunate to be seated at the rear of the restaurant and had the added spectacle of viewing the chefs working in the kitchen. The restaurant attracts young and old alike, all enjoying...

I recently took my business guests to this restaurant in order to impress them. The food was lovely but the service was rather disappointing. The services from the most staff are friendly and pleasant, but not so nice from the on duty manager in the restaurant, to the extent that my business guests were a little shocked. In addition, the... More

Rather good food, even for the price but service was inattentive, slow, and worse of all the waiter complained that we hadn't paid the bill in it's entirety when we didn't pay all of the "complimentary" service charge.

As the majority of other reviewers have said this restaurant was amazing. We felt special from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. We were not rushed in the slightest in fact for 3 courses and coffee we were there for over 2.5hrs with each course being brought out... More

Enjoyed a family lunch at this urban restaurant in Cambridge. Food was extremely good and well-presented by attentive staff. So all good, so why only 4 out of 5 ? Essentially it comes down to the ambience. The restaurant is on a main road junction with constant traffic outside, which we were always aware of during the meal. More significant... More

A wonderful evening. We opted for the 10 course tasting menu with the matching wine and would highly recommend. The smoked Eel started was out of this world.

Thought we'd check out one of Cambridge's finest last night and boy were we impressed. Arriving just before 7 meant we qualified for the £30 meal deal : 3 courses, glass of wine, coffee & chocolates. You'd be hard pushed in Pizza Express to get all that for the money, let alone a Michelin starred restaurant. And what of the... More
