Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We rang and tried to book for a family occasion. The man who answered was rude and abrupt, said to use the website. Very dismissive and when I asked about an outside table he said “everyone asks, you probably won’t get one. Book on the...website I can’t help you”More

We went as a couple for dinner on Friday. The restaurant is loverly and the service was good. The food was a massive disappointment. Overcooked duck for starters and the main seafood pasta was lazy, cooked in mussel stock. I would not visit again unless...the kitchen steps up its game.More

This restaurant is spotlessly clean with friendly staff and delicious food. It's in a great location with river views. The food is fresh and presented to a very high standard, I would definitely visit again and highly recommend. It's so nice to find a quality...restaurant that you cannot fault, the prices are very reasonable too.More

Excellent location with balconies overlooking the river. Food and drink was delicious, particularly the sea bass. Service was some of the best I’ve experienced. I would definitely recommend and would visit again.

Excellent venue for lunch half way through a day's shopping. The food was simply oustanding and it was lovely to be next to the river and the passing water craft. Staff were very welcoming and Martha's attention to detail was first rate. Thank you!

Delicious and unique restaurant on the river, we enjoyed two very tasty and well presented mains- the cauliflower steak and chicken supreme. We also both enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding which was super moist and as good as my mums! The setting of this restaurant...was beautiful, we really enjoyed watching the swans and punters sailing on the water as we ate our meal. The icing on the cake were the friendly and attentive waiting staff who really made the experience a lovely one!More

What a great lunch. A warm welcome & seated on the balcony overlooking the river and historic university buildings - with blankets and a heater if you felt cold (we didnt). A great spot. The starters and the main courses were a work of art...as well as hot and very tasty. The lemonchello spritz must be tried.More

Lovely 'date night' meal with my wife on Saturday evening. Service and food was first class and would be very happy to visit again and to recommend to anyone looking for a night out. We had mussels and smoked duck starters which were lovely, followed...by confit duck and chicken supreme. Beautifully cooked and presented. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding and 2 spoons!More

Initially not looking forward to coming to restaurant( friends choice) but did however find something I thought I may enjoy… and I did just that.! Nicely presented. Good sized portions and very very tasty. Only critisism for me was mussels and linguine could have been...a tad warmer. However friendly staff and service excellent.Nice view by the river. Downside is I thought the toilets could be cleaner and a little more stylish but won’t stop me returning.More

We had our wedding lunch at the Galleria. Aamir and his team were extremely warm and welcoming and made our day an extra special experience. The food was delicious, exquisite and beautifully presented. Aamir helped us plan our day, he was very personable, knowledgeable and...accommodating with our menu choices and ensured that our guests fully experienced the river-side location of the Galleria where we could watch punters pass by and relax before our meal. We thoroughly recommend the Galleria for a special occasion. Gary and Louise, Cambridge.More
