Description: 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.

Visited tuesday evening and pleasantly surprised, I had a very nicely cooked steak and forthe price it was fair to say the waitresses/waiters certainly know the menu. Took a stroll by the river came across this place.
Trendy, warm, welcoming.
I will be back!

It's been several months since I have been to the River bar. The previous time I went to the steaks were quite chewing and I was disappointed by the quality compared to the cost.

I'm pleased to say that the River bar now serves its steaks in hot metal pans which keep the steak warm for a decent amount of time so you can enjoy them without having to rush.

The chunky chips are to die for and the salad is fresh and tasty all served up in super QuickTime with a beautiful glass of wine.

Well done river bar you have got your five stars back again. Shame it's so expensive

Amazing setting with gorgeous food and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
We found this restaurant after searching for nice restaurants in Cambridge on the internet and called just after lunch to book for that evening.
The main guy was more than helpful and offered us an early evening time as they were fully booked which was fab as we were attending a show anyway.
On arrival the same guy greeted us and sat us down in one of the best seats, on the mezzanim floor against the window where the view was amazing in the evening sunshine.
Our Tuna steaks were gorgeous and the atmosphere was fantastic.
We highly recommend this restaurant and cannot wait to re visit.
A huge thank you to all the lovely staff we had an excellent time,

The atmosphere inside the restuarant was lively without being over the top. Very nicely decorated and laid out. Food was competent, couldn't fault it. Wine list very good. Maybe a tad pricey but that is Cambridge for you. Recommended.
