* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A “good local bistro” that’s “always very busy” owing to its solid, reasonably priced Anglo/European food and a “very visible” owner who “obviously cares very much about the business”; “lovely courtyard in summer” too.

A “very friendly” decade-old bistro that, albeit “very noisy”, wins praise for its “agreeable atmosphere” (especially in the pretty walled garden); the modern Anglo/Euro food doesn’t detract from a visit either.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

With its “lovely and convenient setting with charming courtyard”, plus “very good food” and “amazing hospitality” this indie neighbourhood bistro is, by all accounts, “one of the best places in Cambridge for an enjoyable laidback meal”.

“If you don’t like chains, this is a good bistro halfway between the railway station and gown town”; “externally it looks relatively unpromising”, but inside it’s a “light and airy” room combining “a bit of character” with “reasonably priced” grub.
