Galleria Restaurant is located on Bridge Street opposite the infamous Quayside. Known as The Restaurant on the River, Galleria offers al fresco dining with two terrace balconies and a seating area at the front of the restaurant, overlooking both Magadelene College & the historic River Cam.

The picturesque location is perfectly complimented by an array of classic and unique cocktails, including an extensive gin list. The food is renowned for its distinctive flavours and international inspiration, with the menu being regularly updated.

The locals know Galleria for its riverside views and unforgettable homemade Sticky Toffee Pudding, which means one visit is never enough!

    We had dinner here on a Saturday evening. The manager was a tad rude and unfriendly. He came across like we was being a inconvenience to him. The waitress was unhelpful when asking about wine etc. Seemed she wasn't interested in working there. The food was dry and very salty. The actual restaurant was a lovely little find with balconies over looking the canal. Would suit a couple on a romantic evening.

    The quality of the food was outstanding! Really tasty, well presented, perfect portion. The service was incredibly slow, but it was a busy bank holiday and understaffed The menu on open table is about £2-3 cheaper than the one in the restaurant - which is slightly frustrating when planning on a budget.

    So the water was nice as was the view! However, the service was poor, there was no atmosphere and the food was terrible. The waiter simply said your table is on the balcony and didn’t show us to our seats so we had to guess which table was ours. The food was very bland and not that hot. The waiter showed poor attention to the table. We had to set the table ourselves as the knives and forks were just placed in the middle. When I complained that the food wasn’t great it took me three attempts to say it as the waiter ignored my comments. He then made a rude comment that we had eaten our food (this is true as we were very hungry). Although he deducted money from the bill his attitude with dealing with the complaint was very poor. I have eaten here in the past and it was lovely. We will never return to this restaurant.

    My daughter and I recently enjoyed lunch outside on the lower floor overlooking the River Cam. This is a great spot as you can enjoy watching the punting going by. The food served was absolutely delicious, fresh produce, great flavours, all beautifully presented. Our waiter was charming and even offered us blankets. Service was faultless. We will definitely be returning here!

    I enjoyed everything about the restaurant including the great staff and the nice food. One recommendation would be to just clean up the finishing touches for Example the toilets and the outside balcony's just need a touch up of paint.

    We returned here as we had loved it the last time we visited. We were not disappointed and the food was delicious and reasonably priced . Service is friendly and pleasant . Weather didnt allow us to sit outside but we would like to go back and enjoy sitting by the river. Recommend the crab linguine which was delicious.

    Great location over looking the river. We had a terrace table with a fab view. Food was lovely and surprisingly large portions which was great with some tasty cocktails. Excellent service - the only tiny complaint is that they don’t have a cheese option on the desert menu which is odd - but overall a great experience

    Had a lovely lunch with hubby and friends. Great service and sat in window so great position. Had the mackerel pate (yumo) to start the monk fish main. Only thing I can say is a bit more sauce would’ve been good but tast was lovely. Tiramisu for dessert. Beautiful gin drink too (spit roasted pineapple gin). Can’t wait for it to be warmer so we can sit on balcony.
