Description: The Galleria restaurant in Cambridge has the most brilliant location at the foot of Magdalene Bridge beside the River Cam, just in one of the deepest parts where the punters come unstuck. With a pair of terraces beside the river, diners have a ringside seat not only for the punting circus, but also for the pleasure of one of England’s loveliest views. This three-level continental restaurant is light and airy, romantic and pleasant, with wrought-iron balconies, ferns, French prints, bistro-style seating. Signature dish is poached fillets of monkfish in lemongrass with sweet red chilli cream sauce and tiger prawns with leeks and mushrooms served with rice. The very reasonable wines tend to favour Old World vineyards.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 5 April 2011

Had dinner with friends on a Monday evening.
Wine list varied and reasonable without being ridiculously extensive to the point of getting lost for choice!

Slightly surprised and disappointed that the waiter declared he hadn't tasted any of the dishes we asked about. If I ran a restaurant all of my staff would be expected to know the products!!! In comparison we ate at Hotel Du Vin in Cambridge and our waitress knew all of the cheeses on the cheese trolley and there were lots!!!

Dessert was good, simple apple flan, executed well and lifted by incredibly flavoursome vanilla ice cream.

Atmosphere was good and very relaxed. We sat down at 1945 and it was 2230 before we knew it.

Try it and I personally think you'll like it.

Only a 5 min walk from town centre. Stop for a drink at the Mitre on the way!!!

I had the duck in port and cherry sauce. Absolutely fantastic. Friend had the monkfish and she loved it.

“Great Food in a Riverfront Location”
Reviewed 6 February 2011

A bit outside the city centre, but worth the walk. Right beside the river, the Galleria serves extremely good quality food and is good value for money.

Some really nice salads and great baguettes sit alongside smart restaurant quality main courses. Desserts are also good with the "Chocolate Box" mousse very good indeed.

Would hope to return in the future.

“Excellent food but a bit cramped”
Reviewed 31 October 2010

We were visiting Cambridge during our wedding anniversary weekend and specifically chose the Galleria restaurant for its riverside location. We had used the website booking facility to reserve our table approx 6 weeks before our anniversary (since we live in Australia) but received no response, so ended up having to call to make the reservation.

The food was fantastic and the service was very attentive, but we were seated at a table at a very narrow point at the top of the stairs which made for a rather cramped dining experience.

“Gorgeous Restaurant next to the Cam!”
Reviewed 21 July 2010

Have been to Cambridge twice now and on both occasions ate here.. simply brilliant! I had the steamed mussels in Thai green curry for starters and the poached Monkfish in chilli and coconut sauce for mains. The second time around i tried a different starter, a tart-let, which was also nice. Staff were very professional and a table on the balcony gave good atmosphere!
