Description: The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill, with its cavernous loft-like vibe, quayside location and creative crowd, has become one of Cambridge's premier restaurants. Located close to the bustling town centre, in a riverside spot opposite Magdalene College, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill is a popular choice for special occasion dining and drinks. The Grill serves the very finest prime cuts of beef, aged for 28 days and sourced from local farms. The menu includes a large selection of cuts, from a classic porterhouse to a tender fillet or indulgent chateaubriand for two. Burgers meanwhile are freshly made on the premises and marinated chicken and fresh fish come straight from the signature grill too. Though based around the steak, The River Bar Steakhouse and Grill caters superbly for vegetarians, serves sublime desserts and prior to your meal we heartily recommend enjoying hand mixed cocktails in the bar, the ideal start to any special evening.

Small restaurant bar, linked to the Varsity Hotel. Staff were efficient, had the ribeye steak - £18 which came on a wooden board with some salad and wedges in a small bucket.

Alcoholic drink was £4.00, nice atmosphere generally, would visit again.

I had a beautifully cooked ribeye steak and my wife had a lovely fillet, served with the best homemade chips we have ever had. The chef came to see how are meal was - a real character who wears a kilt, he lives for cooking and it shows. Friendly service and a beautiful building overlooking the river, albeit tucked away so a little hard to find, but well worth it, if you want to avoid some of the chains that unfortunately are endemic in not only Cambridge but in many cities in the UK.

The welcome was very polite and friendly, and even though my first food choice was not available, they went out of their way to ensure I had an enjoyable meal. This restaurant also serves breakfast for the Varsity hotel, and that service and quality was faultless!
