Well worth a visit. The steaks are excellent, the cocktails are great and the staff are very friendly. Nice atmosphere and building, close to the centre of Cambridge.

We visited here recently to celebrate my husbands graduation. We had requested the window seat upstairs at the time of booking several months ago. We're so glad we did. Best seats in the house! The views of the river and punting were excellent. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The steaks were excellent. My husband... More

A very delicious restaurant. You definitely pay for what you get. Steaks are priced compared to a normal restaurant but a normal restaurant wouldn't taste as good as this steakhouse! I certainly enjoyed my Sirloin steak that was cooked perfect. Portion size was a bit big but I have a small stomach. I had to also try their Creme Brûlée... More

Great steaks but the sauce portions are tiny. Dip a few chips and its gone. Everything was well cooked and well presented but service is a little slow. Will be back though :)

We were early for our reservation but were seated straight away with a very warm welcome. Service was excellent, amazing waitress and manager. Food was quick and tasted as good at it looked. Just the right amount of food, not so much you feel overwhelmed, but enough to fill you up! Will definitely enjoy stopping again on our next visit.

We went for a relaxing evening with a few colleagues, we had not reserved and yet the manager made her best to find us a table. The food was excellent and with large portion so we had difficulties to finish. The service was extremely friendly and professional. These people made our day by their kindness and professionalism. THANK YOU FOR... More

It's very rare I would post a review on a restaurant, however on this occasion being my 2nd visit I can't recommend enough how well this place is run, the manager is attentive, the staff are professional and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing and you will not be disappointed. A fantastic evening.

The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.
