The Oak Bistro
I have enjoyed meals at this restaurants on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The quality of the food is always good with just the right-sized portions and delivered by a courteous and attentive staff. Whether meeting with business colleagues, celebrating an occasion or having a romantic evening, the Oak Bistro is a great choice.
I had lunch at the Oak Bistro with a group of friends, for our friend’s birthday. The set menu was excellent value, and the food was good quality. The atmosphere was lively and the service was very good. I will return again.
1 hour and a half to bring the food !!! We arrived 15 minutes late and ot was the revenge...
Great cosy restaurant with excellent service. Blah Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Great service with knowledgeable staff who were helpful and attentive. Great wine list, delicious food on varied menu where everything appealed and amazing puddings.
We had a really great evening at the Open History. The welcome was really good, the food delicious and the ambience just perfect. I will definitely go again. We had a great evening.
Wonderfully attentive staff with a good range of crowd-pleasing menu options. The lamb in particular was very good.
Also helpful to offer half bottles of wine.
I run a fine dining club and this is the second time we have visited The Oak Bistro. They are absolute fabulous!
Excellent service from Josh. Food superb. Very clean, comfortable surroundings. Great variety of drinks. We didn't sit in the garden but it looked beautiful.
A wonderful Mediterranean-style garden - perfect for outdoor eating in the summer. Excellent food. Lovely staff.
This is a lovely little place, I went there for my birthday lunch with my mother and sat in the courtyard.
Nice food for a reasonable price.
Very good food, very good location and very good price.
Unfortunately the portions size, especially for the starters is way too small.
This is my first choice in Cambridge Restaurants. There are few really inspiring places to go in this city and Philip Newman one of the owners personally selects the wines for the list and knows them well.
Lovely table in courtyard, perfect weather. Excellent fish. Service great
the location is very good, and the service is good.
Food was lovely, and the setting of the courtyard was ideal on a sunny day.
We had a really lovely meal in nice surroundings with excellent service
We were visiting Cambridge and I saw a recommendation fro this restaurant in Rick Steve's England book. I'm so glad we decided to go. I had a delicious beef wellington and my husband had a sirloin steak. We ate outside in a beautiful courtyard with heaters for cool weather. The service was friendly and efficient. I would definitely go back to enjoy this place again.
Lovely relaxed environment and sitting outside is best if weather permits. Food and service very good.
We visited for a pre-theatre lunch, it was our second visit and as the weather was good wanted somewhere we could eat outside. We remembered it was good from the last visit but we were wrong it was better than good, this place is outstanding, the welcome, the service, the food, the drink, everything was exceptional.
I went for the set menu for lunch. The food was really nice and the price is great.
Excellent service and imaginative menu and beautifully prepared food.
Excellent evening, and delicious food and wine. Staff was very kind and attentive. Thanks so much!
We have enjoyed eating at the Oak for many years. Essential to book ahead normally, but sometimes we are lucky and can eat there at short notice. We usually eat in evenings and the welcome and the service are always first class. The food is great, but their carefully managed wine list is a delight, every one a winner.
Excellent lunch to celebrate a big anniversary with close friends. On a lovely sunny day we were able to eat outside in the garden which was great and lifted the spirits! Friendly and efficient service added to the relaxed atmosphere; the food was brilliant (very generous and beautifully cooked portions of hake for the mains stood out), and the fizz and wine (from a great list) made the whole event memorable. Thanks to all at the Oak Bistro and we will definitely be back!
Nous avons été accueillis de façon vraiment très chaleureuse.
Les plats proposés sont suffisamment variés pour que tout le monde y trouve son bonheur, avec tout de même pas mal d'originalité. Nous avions pris en entrée une bisque de homard (très goûteuse), une salade chèvre-betterave (très fraîche et délicieuse) et des gnocchis au pesto de roquette (très bon). Pour les plats principaux, nous avions pris le saumon en croute, le risotto aux champignons et les côtes d'agneau. Là encore, tout était très bon avec un petit bémol pour le risotto qui était chaud tout juste.
Le rythme du service était correct même si le restaurant était bondé.
L'impression d'amabilité chaleureuse perçue dès notre arrivée ne s'est pas démentie tout au long du repas et quelque soit les intervenants.
We were warmly greeted when arriving at this restaurant. The food was really good with a wide variety of dishes and an innovative touch. The service was efficient and as warm as the welcome. We recommend !
Excellent atmosphere and delicious food. Great service. Definitely come back.
We have lived in the area since 1991, and within walking distance for the last 9 years, and yet had never been to the Oak Bistro before, perhaps because the location on a road junction is slightly unprepossessing. Don't let that put you off! The interior is extremely pleasant, the service warm and friendly without intruding, and the food and wine delicious. We will go again.
Outstanding service! Extremely friendly staff! Cosy ambiance. Very good food with interesting ideas (like the gnocchi with tasty roquette pesto, tomatoes and lemon zest)
Good food with excellent service in a comfortable atmosphere.
Lovely Saturday lunch with adult (and near adult) children.
I've eaten lunch here more than a few times over the past couple of years and have always enjoyed the meal. Normally it has been the set lunch which is absolutely excellent value for money in Cambridge.
If you are there in warmer months there is a lovely patio as an alternative to the inside tables.
A lovely find. Friendly and efficient service, delicious food and wine surrounded by some lovely art work. Will definitely go again.
Our first time dining in Cambridge. Superb food and warm, friendly staff. Cozy ambiance.
This was our first visit to the Oak Bistro and after reading reviews we were looking forward to it.
The outside is deceiving as the restaurant is a lot bigger then it seems. the dinning areas were a quite 'roomy' which did add to the atmosphere.
the staff were all very polite and friendly.
the food was good and the menu was varied. time between courses was about right.
All in all a very enjoyable dinning evening, will go again and recommend to others.
We really enjoyed our evening at The Oaks Bistro. The service and the food were really good and the location of the restaurant was ideal for us.
We found a warm atmosphere, excellent cooking, good wine list and attentive service - what more can a neighbourhood restaurant be asked for?
This was a great experience, lovely venue with awesome staff. All the food was great and the wine was very tasty, all very good considering the modest pricing (not cheap but worth paying for). I would highly recommend this to anyone for dates, special occasion or just a nice classy meal.
Excellent food as always. Good wine and attentive service. Highly recommended.
Having walked past this place for several years and never managing to get around to actually go, I was pleasantly surprised to find the covered court yard garden and the spacious back room, so it is actually quite a large restaurant, although it looks so small from the outside.
The food did not disappear either; me and my friend both had the 3 course daily special menu, where all the dishes were excellent. Beautifully presented and tasty and felt that this represented excellent value.
The service was both efficient and professional and friendly. High quality cuisine, with fresh ingredients in Cambridge and not part of a chain.....
I will definitely be back!
