A friendly restaurant serving good European food in Cambridge, with an excellent wine list. Nice setting; good option for a three-course meal, also good at serving larger parties, very consistent and conveniently located.

Went for our anniversary meal and were not disappointed. Food was really tasty but not fussy at the same time. Atmosphere was perfect for couples. Waiter was very attentive but didn't make us feel rushed or hassled. Would highly recommend!

We (2 packs) walked in here on the off chance of snagging a table and were lucky on a rainy Wednesday evening... We had previously failed to get a walk in table the week before!

This restaurant is great. It has fantastic food, with inspiration from France and the U.K. The portions are good without being massive which leaves just enough space for their lovely desserts!

The restaurant were flexible on the time as the torrential rain made us late. They were able to seat us inside instead of our booked outdoor table which was much appreciated. The menu seemed weighted towards fish/seafood which was good for us but our veggie struggled a bit with only two main course options. The food was excellent - tasty... More
