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.

Ok so this place gets four from me. My husband had porterhouse steak and I had the whole grilled lobster. Both meals were thoroughly enjoyable and we tried each other's. The one tip I would give is to substitute your chips for the wedges. They were great but then I'm not a chip fan. The desserts were wonderful although maybe a little overpriced. Absolutely lovely staff, friendly and accommodating but stayed away for long enough without you having to wait for long when you wanted something. The only bad point, we had the window table and that was lovely but definitely a bit of a bug problem along the window. I mean little flies but that was a little off putting.

The restaurant is right on the river Cam but the only ones who can get a peek are the people sitting next to the single window in the whole place. Service was good. The steaks are done nicely. The only thing I dint like are the deserts. They are store bought and not fresh at all. The tiramisu tasted horrible.They are expensive too.

We went to this place when staying in Cambridge for one night. It was my birthday , and we asked for a window table when we booked. The view was lovely but only a few tables have that. The food was not out of the ordinary but perfectly fine. Very friendly service from our waiter.

The restaurant has a great location with river views from some tables. Ours was near to the window but not near enough to be able to see the water - we could see the college gardens opposite which was nice enough. Plenty of people serving which was good. Food distinctly average, the veggie choices were uninspiring - they might have managed a veggie burger. We went to a steakhouse for my meat eating partner but he said his meal was OK and not anything to rave about. We didn't think it was worth it for the price.

Perfect table by the window - excellent steak at a reasonable price - and you must try an Amoretto blueberry cocktail
