Steakhouse
The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge’s premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
