French Restaurants in Cambridge
1. Alimentum French restaurant in Cambridge 152-154 Hills Rd - CB2
The location isnt fab as its on a busy road at a main junction, which you have to get across as the parking is on the far side, and some criticise the rather stark red-and-black interior too (wonderful and modern to fans, but just doesnt work to critics). Perhaps its all part of balancing innovation with a conservative local clientele? Certainly the unfussy service was the least controversial point this year charming, and just the right side of attentive; foodwise, Mark Poyntons brave venture is a Marmite experience: for some its bitterly disappointing (I was so pleased when this restaurant got its Michelin star, but visiting after two years, I found it complacent and lazy); for the majority its exciting as ever, precise, fun, and with great ingredients; and for one fan its out of this world.
2. Hotel du Vin et Bistro French restaurant in Cambridge 15-19 Trumpington St - CB2
2016 Review: Admittedly, its not scaling culinary heights
, the food doesnt live on in the memory
but this outpost of the wine-fuelled hotel-bistro chain is certainly a pleasant establishment and one that's particularly good for a quick business lunch.
3. Côte French restaurant in Cambridge 21-24 Bridge St - CB2
As a useful port of call, these safe all-day French brasseries remain immensely popular, especially for their bargain set lunch, and pre-theatre deals. However, even many fans would concede that the straightforward fare is solid but unspectacular.
4. Café Rouge French restaurant in Cambridge 24-26 Bridge St - CB2
2015 Review: Best avoided unless the children really wont wait these fake French bistros have their fans as a breakfast destination, but other meals are sometimes so badly prepared and served as to be simply dire.
