2. Navadhanya Cambridge restaurant in Cambridge 73 Newmarket Rd - CB5
Not your regular curry house, but rather a refined two-year-old venture specialising in amazing, beautifully cooked Indian food which is served with style.
3. Midsummer House British, Modern restaurant in Cambridge Midsummer Common - CB4
What a revelation to find this gastronomic oasis in Cambridge; Daniel Cliffords Victorian villa fantastically located on Midsummer Common, by the Cam is nowadays one of the surveys top 5 most commented-on destinations outside London and, with the help of his team and continual investment in the property, it radiates classy self-confidence. An updating of the dining room with an open-plan kitchen has led to a far more relaxed atmosphere, theres an upstairs bar overlooking the river, and the option to end with coffee and petit fours in the walled garden when the weathers fine. Superb staff deliver a wonderful array of spectacular dishes (plus well-chosen wine pairings) with just the right degree of theatre, and you choose from a series of innovative tasting menus, with a choice as to the number of courses. No prize for guessing the catch! even fans can choke on the London prices in the provinces.
4. Cotto British, Modern restaurant in Cambridge Gonville Hotel, - CB1
Hans Schweitzers spectacularly good cuisine is an 11/10 for practically all who report on this peripherally located spot (on a busy road, near the Grafton Centre). Italian in inspiration, the food is simply gobsmackingly gorgeous and especially the desserts; lovely staff and a cosy feel to the place all add up to make this smallish restaurant a romantic highlight and there arent too many in Cambridge!
5. Restaurant 22 British, Modern restaurant in Cambridge 22 Chesterton Rd - CB4
Most (if not quite all) reporters love everything about this intimate riverfront villa with an elegant (prix fixe-only) Victorian dining room particularly its cosy atmosphere, but also its lovely service and creative cooking.
6. Yippee Noodle Bar Pan-Asian restaurant in Cambridge 7-9 King St - CB1
They do not come more cheap n cheerful than this an outstanding-value joint, in the city centre, thats also noted for its fast and boisterous atmosphere.
7. Steak & Honour Burgers, etc restaurant in Cambridge various locations - CB2
If you can find out where they will be presumably easier now that the secrets out, and they're operating two vans then make an effort to try one of their burgers: it doesnt get better than this!; its far too popular though, so you have to queue.
8. Oak Bistro British, Modern restaurant in Cambridge 6 Lensfield Road - CB2
If you dont like chains, this is a good bistro halfway between the railway station and gown town; externally it looks relatively unpromising, but inside its a light and airy room combining a bit of character with reasonably priced grub.
9. Pipasha Restaurant Indian restaurant in Cambridge 529c, Newmarket Rd - CB5
Fans of this Bangladeshi on the city outskirts, say âitâs in a class of its ownâ thanks to its very good cooking.
10. Sea Tree Fish & seafood restaurant in Cambridge 13 The Broadway - CB1
âA welcome option amongst the Mill Road eateriesâ offering âhigh quality and reliable fish ânâ chipsâ, âgreat crispy calamariâ and âeven a wet fish counterâ; given all this, it's âworth the price compared to its competitorsâ.
