Friday – Saturday: 12:00 - 22:00
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.
We visited this restaurant for a family birthday occasion and hadn’t seen too much information about it beforehand. The food, presentation and service were absolutely excellent - above all expectations. Would definitely recommend / return!
Small, comfy, smart, busy restaurant where the staff are just great. Very attentive. Food is delicious and beautifully presented.
Nice to see Varsity updated - very different from how it used to be! Good decor, very similar to it's sister restaurant Trinity. Pleasant ambiance and seating. Nice helpful friendly staff, very good food and reasonably priced wine. A lovely evening for a group of 5 of us - would go again.
Delicious meal and staff very attentive and professional . Would definitely recommend . Thank you
Last minute booking for our anniversary and it was amazing! Not being from Cambridge we were unsure of the places to eat, so went for pot luck and were definitely not dissappinted. Great service from a welcoming front of house team who were very attentive! The most amazing food I have tasted for a longtime and with a wonderful atmosphere definitely setting the scene for a romantic night for two. I would highly recomend Varsity Restaurant to anyone I know who is visiting Cambridge.
Good choices from the lunch menu
I went for dinner with my girlfriend , we had a very nice meal . Food was really good and service too . The best thing for me in this restaurant was actually service which wasn’t rushing us . We finish our wine then we had another glass and the guys we’re waiting us that’s 5 star service . If you’re looking for place to have a good dinner with bottle of wine and you’re not in a rush you definitely should try .
From starter to dessert the taste was excellent and the presentation very appetizing. I had the mussles, the halibut and the apple-ice cream, with a glass of Italian white: perfect. Dinner for three with three courses and wine each for around £100. That's very good value.
Great food and great staff. We had the pork belly and the polenta cake. Perfect!
Exquisite food in a calm and classy setting. The pork belly was one of the best things I've eaten in a long time.
What a great place! Delicious food, excellent service, and comfortable surroundings, all at a reasonable price. Very highly recommended.
