“OK but not great....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Eleven of us, including five children, went for dinner on Saturday. On arrival the welcome was good and we were seated out of the way which suited us. Service was generally good and fairly quick given our numbers. However, Loch Fyne could look at a couple of things in our view. The children ordered off the 2 course set menu, two ordering King Prawn Tagliatelle Provençale. One had two prawns, the other had one. We mentioned this to the staff and an extra two prawns were provided. We were told the specification for this dish is....two prawns. Not sure why it's called King Prawn Tagliatelle really. Several of us ordered the Tempura Battered Squid for our starter at £6.35. We all received four tiny (I mean tiny) pieces of squid, barely two mouthfuls. I'm not a fan of huge staters but this was a mean portion. No doubt as per the specification though. When paying we were asked if we had enjoyed the meal. I said that the food was fine but the portions were extremely small, in particular the squid and prawn dishes. I was told I was welcome to my opinion to which I replied 'If you don't want to know, don't ask'. Overall, the meal was ok and some of it was very nice. Other dishes were a little disappointing, This restaurant is ok but there are plenty of other choices in Cambridge.

“Poor Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Treating visiting friends to a nice seafood meal was not all we had hoped for.
Presentation was poor, service was only slightly better and food disappointing.
This was a couple of months ago and whilst seafood is our favourite, we are lothe to spend our money on a similar meal.
Hopefully things have improved
VERY SAD

“Went back a month later after a disastrous evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

We had a really bad experience here a month ago. We complained to the owners in written as it was so bad. We were sent a letter of apology and voucher. we went back last Sunday. What a difference, the staff had obviously been talked to and the food was so different. What a difference in a month. Well done, we will be regulars again, the attitude of staff and management were so noticeable it was like being in the old restaurant as we knew and loved it. The quality of the food was excellent, portion sizes were up as well...

“Not Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Cold Fish is all I can say, very clicky, emperors new clothes etc springs to mind, sorry cooking fish is easy not rocket science, all you need is good ingredients, and either a deep fat fryer, of a good grill. They appear to have neither these or the good manners to apologise for a disgusting meal.
