Varsity Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food taste and looks amazing and the service is very attentive and helpful the place is small and cosy and very romantic. Our meal was slightly disturbed by a loud guest but other then that very pleasant experience. Meals are highly priced however the taste and quality of the food justifies its price. In total a lovely experience.
Stunning restaurant which has incredibly delectable food. The staff set up the table especially nicely for my girlfriend and I as it was her birthday, and even brought us free ice cream. Could not recommend enough! Good gluten free options for all courses except dessert.
Genuinely excellent all round. Every plate was impeccably presented, with well-balanced and interesting flavour combinations. Top ingredients - and really reasonably priced given the quality. Service was also top-notch: attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing or formal. A jewel in the crown of Cambridge's restaurant scene!
A very fine dining experience and wonderful romantic setting which is simplistic but what a perfect date would entail. Great tasting dishes and a wide selection of wine. Very cosy enjoyable night with my partner and the customer service was amazing and friendly. They also had flowers prepared for me as I requested and also called to inform me I left my jacket. Definently recommend for a romantic or lunch or dinner when in Cambridge.
We used this restaurant, again, for the first time since the kitchen fire and subsequent refurbishment. The I nterior has been updated, tastefully, the staff were friendly and the service was good, and never too rushed. What we appreciated particularly was a personal touch of taking an interest in our reason for eating there at that time – a visit to the theatre, and what show we were going to see.
Excellent restaurant. We have always wanted to eat at Varsity so decided to book for an intimate birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint. Top quality food, served simply with a few additional flourishes (such as the wasabi pea purée - wow). In addition, the service was extremely polite, attentive and friendly. I will definitely be eating there again.
We needed to be quick as we were going to the theatre. There were six of us. Our waiter was really helpful and friendly and constantly mindful of our time constraint whilst not making us feel rushed. The food and wine was very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
This restaurant is great. We went for lunch and chose from the lunch menus, which have plenty of choice and can be 1-3 courses. The food was excellent and the price extremely reasonable. Both members of staff that we dealt with were friendly, courteous and professional. I also appreciate being able to book online which is a very simple process.
Our visit to Varsity was fantastic and an all round lovely experience.
From the minute we walked in to the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome and as though nothing was a problem. We stayed for 3 hours, enjoying shared bread and olives, mains, dessert and coffees, and each course was just as good as the last. The food was beautiful and well put together, a meal so good we didn't want to finish it.
All of the staff we encountered at Varsity were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. As the occasion was my mother's birthday they popped a candle in her cheesecake and sang to her, which was a great touch!
I can't recommend this restaurant enough, we're still talking about how wonderful our experience was and we're already planning our return! A must visit when in Cambridge.
We went to have a casual lunch while wandering around in Cambridge. Thanks to advanced booking, we got the table next to the window through which we can enjoyed the view of a relaxed Saturday afternoon in this lovely town. When we took the first look at the menu, we could mmediatelly tell this should velong to the same group with another great restaurant in town, Trinity. The food there were very good and the atomsphere were cosy and comfortable.
Haven't been to The Varsity for many years when it was a cheap and cheerful Greek. Saw the good reviews for the new incarnation post fire and thought we'd give it a go with some friends. Small intimate room. Had the a la carte menu. Really well done bistro food with superb service. The crab spring rolls, crispy squid, belly pork and duck breast all especially enjoyed. Excellent value, three courses plus plenty of wine and tip about £50 per head - you could do it cheaper than us if you didn't drink so much! The pre theatre and other options were much cheaper. While I'm here let me put in a plug for the Free Press for a pre dinner drink <10 mins walk away.
The food was much better in our opinion to that of their sister restaurant 'Trinity'. The food was exceptionally tasty and piping hot (not always something you can say unfortunately. Staff were very helpful (I had to amend the number of diners). Would definitely go again. Lots of room upstairs which I didn't know existed.
