Wonderful meal, great service, Highly Recommended - A+++++++
The food was absolutely delicious. Very good service in a stylish setting. Would highly recommend.
Came here for my husband's birthday. Service was friendly and prompt, the food was good but the menu was quite narrow. A pleasant bistro but the acoustics are not great so you can hear other diners, particularly when they have loud voices.
Good food, average service, pretty expensive. The real bone of contention though was that, when we suddenly seemed to be the last people in the restaurant (at 3pm on a Saturday), the radio volume and shouting went up in the kitchen, staff banging in and out of the kitchen next to our table and it seemed like they couldn't wait for us to leave. Their sister restaurant around the corner was full - we should have gone there ;)
Love this place, would recommend to any friend. the value of the lunch/pre-theatre menu is amazing.
Excellent service, wonderful food, highly recommended.
Loved the atmosphere, the service and the food. Only small let down was the crab cannelloni, it's served cold which was unexpected. Rest of food (including steak) was great.
Chose from the Open Table app without knowing the restaurant at all. Couldn’t have been more delighted. Good service, really tasty food across carnivorous and veggie options and right sized portions . Fresh. Very good selection of wines imaginatively describes . 2 people, 2 courses, drinks and coffee £85 - very good value
Outstanding friendly service and food. Great setting
Thought I'd booked restaurant at the varsity hotel!! Almost cancelled when I realised what I'd done - thank goodness I didn't as we had a fantastic meal with our friends. Food dab staff great and venue lovely
Superb meal of in season ingredients. Portion size perfect to have 3 courses. Delicious and would highly recommend.
Great food, great wine, great venue...was a little noisy for a date night but didn't stop us having a fantastic time.
We were on holiday in Cambridge for 5 nights eating out every evening. Varsity was by far the best restaurant. Really great food, beautifully presented by good attentive staff. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Great addition to Cambridge good dining at good value.
Upstairs was a bit close and noisy when full.
A little disappointed in the food, lovely Soup starter, pork belly a little dry/over cooked, almond cake desert very dry didn’t eat it. Staff seemed nice, service was quick and efficient, hopefully just unlucky.
My son and I loved this restaurant. Service was quick, friendly and attentive, eye contact was immediately recognized. Food was lovely, inventive; we had the pre-theatre menu which was a great value. Definitely look forward to our next visit.
Lovely evening at Varsity for a birthday meal. Especially enjoyed the starters - we shared a few. Mains were good but not great. Good service, nice atmosphere, prices as expected.
Great food from a small menu, service was excellent
great meal and good service. Using the loos upstairs was'nt that easy especially my husband who using crutches
The Varsity was recommended to us by a friend and it was fantastic. We had the two course lunch menu for £15. The mussels to start with were delicious and plentiful. Main course was sea bream, crushed potatoes and samphire. Perfectly cooked and delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. Amazing food and great value for money. I’d definitely recommend.
Attentive service in a pleasant setting. Liked it a lot 👍
The staffs are very friendly and sweet! Their service is incredible and made you feel very welcomed to their restaurant. Most importantly the food, IT IS AMAZING! We love all the dishes ordered. Highly recommended
Great food and atmosphere. Duck was awesome but surpassed by the sea bream (a replacement on the menu). Chocolate ganache a great dessert.
Great service, lovely good, will definitely return
Enjoyed starter and mains from set lunch menu which was good value. Friendly welcome and good attentive service.
A very high quality meal at a reasonable price, in comfortable, casual surroundings. As good as its sister restaurant, Trinity. Highly recommended.
Another superb meal enjoyed in this wonderful restaurant. Always an absolute pleasure to dine here.
We had lunch here on Saturday and I was really happy, the food was amazing and thought it was very good value for money. Lovely wine. Great location. Highly recommend.
Our second visit here in a fortnight so that speaks for itself!
Great food and lovely friendly staff. Excellent service and fantastic value for money. Faultless actually! We took friends visiting the UK and they too were impressed. The Varsity is going to be a regular now!
Waiter was excellent!
The food was well presented but was totally lacking. Ordered the braised octopus as a starter - the octopus was cooked well and tasted good, but was minuscule. The ‘nest’ that engulfed the plate was redundant and pretentious as it was tasteless and didn’t go well with the octopus.
The main course was highly disappointing- ordered a cod and it was so extremely salty I couldn’t believe it. Apparently chef had marinated the whole batch in salt so he had to give me another fish - trout - which was equally super salty. I am pregnant and hungry and had to eat the portion up.
They said the chef wanted to make it up to me so offered me ice cream on the house. Any self respecting restaurant would not have charged me for the cod, but they had the cheek to charge me extra for the trout dish instead! Unbelievable! Would not recommend this overpriced and disappointing salty place.
The menu was enticing but that's something that is not always lived up to. Not here. The food was as good as the menu made it sound. Excellent service.
Excellent fish dishes from the lunch menu. Lovely gesture of a special note on the pudding for my wife's birthday.
The food was really delicious. I liked the fact that we were brought water for the table as soon as we arrived and then it was topped up without asking. The staff were attentive without being intrusive.
We booked a table at Varsity for our wedding anniversary. We were very impressed by the excellent food and service. There was an issue with our main course order not reaching the kitchen but this was resolved more than satisfactorily without any fuss and the staff really appeared to care that we enjoyed the evening. We will definitely return and recommend Varsity.
A little disappointed by the food, which was inconsistent as some dishes were lovely and others (mainly the veggie options which sounded amazing) were poor. Staff were helpful and service was good but got slow as the restaurant filled up.
Great lunch and service. Would definitely go again
Some of the best food we have ever eaten and at a very reasonable price.
Wonderful atmosphere and excellent location.
Excellent food as usual. Really well executed but not pretentious. Very nice service, very efficient, welcoming. Always love this place.
Menu choices were superb and when the food came out it was equally as superb. Staff were very good in fact the whole experience was exceptional from start to finish and the prices are very competitive within this sector
