The restaurant coped with the Covid problem very well, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and visit.

A great place for an informal, casual,
dining experience, highly recommended.

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.

One meal was the chicken dish and it wasn’t cooked. The green salad was tasteless and the cheesecake dessert was lumpy and overall disappointing!

Only positive about this place it’s the location next to the river, everything else was mediocre at best.

The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The drinks however were rather expensive. Also the toilets are not in great condition and by the back door which was open all night so was very cold. All in all though, I would highly recommend and would return myself!

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

We haven’t been here for a few years. But it did not disappoint us. The food and service was very good and the lunch time menu had a varied choice to suit all palettes. Gin and tonic seem expensive but it’s trendy.

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.

Very nice food, service was good, if perhaps a bit quick. I had the king prawns as a starter and then the Moroccan chicken - both were delicious, but those who like large portions may be a bit hungry and will require a pud!

Ideally placed for a pre-theatre meal when attending the ADC theatre. We booked for 17:00 on a Saturday and the restaurant was empty when we arrived but soon started to fill thereafter.
