Description: The Galleria restaurant in Cambridge has the most brilliant location at the foot of Magdalene Bridge beside the River Cam, just in one of the deepest parts where the punters come unstuck. With a pair of terraces beside the river, diners have a ringside seat not only for the punting circus, but also for the pleasure of one of England’s loveliest views. This three-level continental restaurant is light and airy, romantic and pleasant, with wrought-iron balconies, ferns, French prints, bistro-style seating. Signature dish is poached fillets of monkfish in lemongrass with sweet red chilli cream sauce and tiger prawns with leeks and mushrooms served with rice. The very reasonable wines tend to favour Old World vineyards.

“Nice meal - good service”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a lovely meal at The Galleria, the service was very good and choice (although not loads to choose from on the menu) was good. Costs varied but not over the top. The restaurant (and others close by) were not very busy but maybe because it was a Sunday evening in the winter! The restaurant sides on to the River Cam so in the summer you can sit outside, which would be perfect.
Will go again, so that I can try something else on the menu!

“Lovely lunch venue”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The food is splendid, the service is good and the view of the River Cam is fantastic. Even better on a nice day when you can sit outside overlooking the river.

“Good night out”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Galleria is situated close to the City centre and was handy for us as we were visiting Cambridge for a wedding anniversary weekend. I have to say that the staff were very friendly and effecient. My wife had a lovely cocktail while we were waiting for the food to arrive while I ordered a beer, which was not very cold at all. The food was good - I cannot fault it at all. The quality of the food was great but the meal was pretty much the same you would get in any good quality bristro. The waiter recommended a red wine for us which was really quite good.
All in all, we enjoyed our night out.

“Good Food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

What a nice change to find a restaurant that has a different menu to the usual run of the meal chain restaurants. The food was really good. I had read previous reviews last year and was put off this restaurant originally by the feed back of the staff being rude. I can only say that I found the staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful. And would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant to anyone and look forward to going back.
