From the moment we entered staff welcoming especially the lady who greeted us. We had lovely table overlooking river and the food was superb, especially the prawns for starters. I had sea bass and had totally missed the fact that it said whole, asked if they could take head off for me and the waiter did this and filleted it at the table really quickly, exceptional service. We were too full up for dessert but a lovely gesture, as it was my friends birthday, was a small dessert with happy birthday written on the plate which she said was delicious, unexpected but very welcome. Would definitely return when in Cambridge. There is nothing at all negative to say but, if I was going to have steak, I don't think I would have been able to eat such large ones so another choice of smaller size maybe worth adding to menu
Excellent service, they went to much trouble to give us the window table we requested. Food and wine was great
Enjoyed a fabulous evening. Very friendly service- even remembered my name! Cocktail made for a relaxing start. Menu catered for all tastes. Large portions-regrettably didn't leave room for dessert. Next time!
We visited this restaurant for a post - graduation meal and we had a lovely evening. The service is impeccable, the food delicious and the ambience relaxed and warm. Thank you for the perfect end to a perfect day!
Had a lovely meal for our first wedding anniversary. Could not fault the service or the food - had the Prawn cocktail to start and then the Ribeye Steak cooked perfectly. The potato wedges weren't to my taste as they were very chunky and tasted a little raw. Overall a lovely experience just a little on the pricey side but then you do have a lovely view if you get a table by the window!
I visited with my partner for his birthday meal - amazing food, great atmosphere and view over the river. Only slight glitch was queuing for the toilet and our server forgot our deserts (long wait as fully booked venue) -but it was worth it for the lovely main meals.
Dined here with 6 friends, not from the area so just searched & booked on line. The meal & service excellent what a great find would definitely recommend!!!
Beautiful venue with amazing food and impeccable service. It is clean, spacious and the staff are friendly, polite and not intrusive. We were there for my partners birthday and had our 4 yr old son with us, they couldn't have been more welcoming at all.
Will definitely be coming back again.
Great food ... great service... great restaurant ... would highly recommend 😃
Had a fantastic time and the food was great! Thanks to all who made it a night to remember
Lovely evening celebrating my daughters graduation. Good food and very attentive service.
Great place. Good food. Good service. Nice views from the windows. That Honey and Chilli Margarita 👌. Overall a little pricey but I recommend it
A fabulous meal as ever! The quality of the ingredients, the staff and ambience are superb - if its not on the menu just ask. :)
Excellent food and service but seated on top floor where there was no air conditioning and it was too hot. Made it uncomfortable and we should have been given the option of dining downstairs a that was fully air conditioned. We skipped dessert as we just needed to get some fresh air.
By far, one of the best steaks I've ever had, and I know my steak! Amazing value, service, vibe. Would love to go back. Cant fault it.
Had a lovely meal here with outstanding cocktails. Although it is primarily a steak restaurant, our veggie daughter was very happy with the selections offered for her too. Excellent fish options and yummy desserts too.
Exceptional service, attentive waiter and waitress. Special occasion as it was my brothers birthday. We had a great seat overlooking the river and people punting. It was a very hot evening and the heat from the sun was quite intense with not the greatest air con. We did ask to move as my son and daughter (11 & 8) were very hot but unfortunately we couldn't move as the restaurant was fully booked. The manager did his best but there was no other tables for 5.
Food was fantastic, cocktails delicious and steak cooked to perfection. The heat did not ruin our evening just made us very sweaty but we will be back!
I took my wife for our 10yr wedding anniversary we booked a table that was easy, found it easy and the staff were amazing from start to finish. The food was cooked to perfection just as we asked and was perfect. Shame our next anniversary is in a yrs time
Lovely waiters. Delicious Sunday lunch. Attention to detail. Surprise platters with candles for our 60 year old birthday girls. Fabulous.
Incredible dinner! Service was best in class and the food was sublime. We shared a camembert starter and chateaubriand mains - both brilliantly done. Cocktails and wine also very good. Thanks to Tariq and team.
Good atmosphere. Attentive staff but not over-attentive. Good choice of food served at a comfortable pace and good quality. Good wine selection too.
Not that special. More casual than we expected. My wife did not like the fact steaks were served on a skillet.
The food was absolutely brilliant. The only reason I didn't give full stars for the food was because my BBQ tuna steak was slightly overcooked for my preference. However, that may be a fault of my own for not requesting how well cooked I wanted it. Nevertheless, the highlight of the lunch was the service; I was very impressed with how the staff greeted us when we arrived e.g shaking our hands. Also, throughout the meal our water was constantly refilled. I would definitely recommend and 100% will be back again.
Great location and fantastic steak, if you like meat you must visit.
We had an absolutely fabulous time! We were greeted by the Manager who made us feel very welcome, kissed the hand of the birthday girl and told us our table wasn't quite ready but got someone to take our drinks order. When we were taken to our table it was upstairs looking out over the river and was perfect. All 6 of our meals were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for the waiters who were attentive without being in the way. We were told our meals would take about 30 minutes so we weren't sitting wondering whether they had forgotten us. Would recommend to all ages, especially for a special occasion.
The service from the staff was exceptional, couldn't have asked for anything more. Funny, charming, and polite.
My food was delicious, although my partners steak was slightly overdone for a medium which was the only negative from the evening.
The best peppercorn sauce I've ever tasted it was amazing !
Amazing experience definitely worth the money, good food and very attentive staff! 10/10 experience
This is a very unique restaurant in Cambridge with beautiful river view and authentic steaks. I was there with 2 intimate friends who also enjoyed a lot of the food quality and friendly service.
Meal for a family of three. Fabulous table upstairs overlooking the water and punts. Delicious steaks, wine and puds. Attentive but not intrusive waiting staff. Will definitely visit again when I'm Cambridge.
We had a lovely evening. Delicious food and cocktails. The only let down was the drastic change in the size of the macaroni cheese side dish. The porterhouse steak is highly recommended. Our waiter was very friendly. We will definitely be returning again.
Service was brilliant from the moment we walked in. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food and drinks were equally as good!
We had a fantastic meal here, gret location our table was by the end window overlooking the river, staff very friendly and helful and the steaks cooked to perfection
will be going again
Three of us went there for lunch yesterday. The side passage outside on the approach to the entrance smelt of "drains"! Inside the staff were very friendly. The service was very good and the food we had was excellent. The view of the river was fantastic. However we could still smell the "drains" inside. I mentioned this to a staff member and he said there was a spa beneath the restaurant and sometimes a damp smell came from there. I would suggest they try to resolve this issue as the smell became more noticeable the longer we were there. We would certainly recommend this restaurant
So tiger prawns for starter, really tasty plus just the right quantity for a starter. Main meal was amazing. The steak just melted in your mouth
Great steak and great service with good cocktails, if its a nice day go to adjacent rooftop bar in the Varsity hotel which is part of the same group.
Great menu, Great taste, Great service, a great night out, will be back.
Brilliant atmosphere and food . View from table brilliant over the river . Staff helpful and attentive
As always the food was beautiful. We went on a Sunday night for my birthday and I did get the impression that the staff couldn't wait to get home. Our waiter however, was friendly and helpful.
