Friday – Saturday: 12:00 - 22:00
Great setting and staff.
2 mains a little poor but handled well and professionally and alternatives offered.
Also need to accept Amex!
Lovely food. Elevated and interesting but not pretentious. Have been to both Varsity and Trinity and have enjoyed both.
Good was a bit bland (was recommended by waiters) and uninspiring. Staff were lovely.
Excellent pre-theatre dinner at Varsity. Service was prompt and friendly and the food was excellent, the cured trout starter and duck main especially. Leave room for the puddings too.
Very nice experience. Food was great and well presented. Staff were polite and welcoming.
Had a great meal that was the perfect finish to a day in Cambridge
This was my third visit to Varsity and it didn't disappoint - it was just as good as ever. Outstanding food, great ambience, calmly excellent service. Not cheap, but not expensive either - entirely reasonable prices for such a great place.
Fantastic meal at Varsity for graduation. Everything was sublime
excellent starters, good wine. very good main courses, some deserts a bit disappointing but ice cream very good. liked the atmospere
A Monday lunch where we were the only customers was a little surreal but the attention and food received was first class.
I am confident that another day or an evening would have improved ambience and the restaurant would feel very cosy.
Fantastic restaurant, the food was amazing and staff excellent. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant the next time I am in Cambridge. My husband and I are already making plans to return soon.
Really enjoyable meal.
Starter and Main were fantastic, but dessert was a bit of a let down in comparison.
Delicious hot food served impeccably with professionalism and warm hospitality.
Excellent service, food was very tasty. Great ambience. Gorgeous plateware.
Lovely atmosphere , great food and wonderful service, thank you!
We were recommended to Varsity by our daughter and we met up with old friends from way back who were visiting Cambridge. The table was ready for us and the waiting-staff extremely helpful in ensuring that whatever we ordered could be served with our "special dietary needs" taken account of. All in all a very lovely evening with good food - quite Nouvelle Cuisine in its makeup bu a very accommodating kitchen - ready to make changes as required.
Fantastic food, beautifully presented, relaxed atmosphere and really excellent service. 4 of us had a lovely evening and all really enjoyed the experience.
Excellent attentive service combined with lovely food
Large noisy groups up stairs makes the vibe more suitable for meals with friends than a romantic date but other than that food was amazing and service was great.
This was our first visit to the revamped Varsity and we weren't disappointed. The food, wine & service were excellent. Just a couple of small gripes; despite being sat next to an open window, the restaurant was very warm and it would be good to have vegetarian dishes noted as such on the menu. Thoroughly recommended.
Fantastic! Nice atmosphere and professional service
Delicious food, very good service and great to celebrate my husband's birthday. I particularly recommend the pork belly which was really tender and original (rice noodles served like a salad). We'll be back!
Visited the restaurant Sunday 27/05. The food was good but missed a little something, for example I had the pork belly with rice noodles, the pork belly was lovely but the rice noodle salad lacked flavour. I also had the cheese board which again, the cheese and crackers were lovely but could have done with something extra, a chutney or something would have added to the dish. My started however of slow cooked lamb shoulder was fantastic with many elements of the dish.
Lovely food great service, we asked to move as a large party next to us were very noisy, waiter was very accommodating and understanding moved us to quieter table. Good value for money.
great food. not too expensive. nice ambience. attentive knowledgeable staff.
As on our previous visit a lovely meal. Good menu choice. Food delicious and well presented. The staff were friendly and attentive.
We would definitely recommend Varsity.
A very attractive and creative menu which brought me to the restaurant in the first place. Very friendly helpful service, excellent food which was presented to a very high standard. Overall lovely dining experience in the centre of Cambridge
Nice atmosphere, unrushed service, delicious Sunday roast options at a reasonable price and lovely wine!
Food did not live up to the general ambience. Altogether very ordinary. Peppercorn sauce for the steak was tasteless, the serving of duck was gross without finesse and the noodles served with the pork was almost uneatable. The charming waitress did warn us that the noodles were served al dente but this did not prepare us for the experience of trying to eat straw. Altogether a very disappointing experience.
Lovely setting, with great food. Staff were very polite and professional.
We had a really nice meal at Varsity. We shared the trout starter followed by duck and tuna carpaccio with a side of jersey royals. All of the food was excellent and we left feeling satisfied. Wine was really good value. This is a really good restaurant with excellent quality food, drink, service and value. We’d gladly return and recommend!
Booked this restaurant as we were visiting Cambridge and also meeting with a friend who lived there. We were seated I a round table which was good for conversation. The choice of food was excellent and we choose roasted cod and a duck dish. The dishes were well presented and tasty. The service was unrushed and we stayed over 3 hours as we were enjoying the company and atmosphere. Would highly recommend and if visiting again would certainly eat here.
Fabulous food, friendly staff and reasonable prices for the quality of food
Really enjoyed the new Varsity
Delicious food, nice ambience, polite and attentive service.
The food was superb, but we had to wait 30mins plus to get it.
I would recommend the food, but not the service.
Last minute booking. The guys at Varsity sorted us out. Food was good I had scallops followed by a rib eye. We also had a couple of bottles of wine. Jo had the soup then fillet steak. Great night. Would definitely go again.
The friendly staff and excellent food made our visit to the Varsity restaurant a pleasant evening.We were made welcome and the staff were very attentive.Will definitely be returning.
The food and the services were amazing!!!! Varsity is a nice place to go with couples or just for a friend dinner.
Friendly service. Food delicious and well presented.
3 of us ate there on a Saturday evening. The food was very good and the wine reasonably priced.
The down side was having a very loud table next to us who were effing constantly. Fortunately they left by the time we had dessert and the staff apologised... I'll be more than happy to eat there again.
