Description: An eclectic Cambridge restaurant situated on the famous King Street in the heart of Cambridge. Modern British cuisine, utilising the freshest local ingredients by a team of talented chefs in the kitchen. We have recently undergone a massive redevelopment with a brand new restaurant, our food is now focused on the 5 tastes Sweet, Salty, Umami, Bitter, Sour. Come on an adventure with us and discover your palette. We also have our private dining room "The wineshop", which is available for your function. We have built a bar above the restaurant with a roof top terrace. Called the Liquor Loft! We focus on barrel aged cocktails and home-made liquors and cordials, paired with craft spirits and beers.

“A pleasant experience”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We have visited twice in the past couple months for both lunch and dinner and were glad we returned after two not so good experiences. When D'Arrys first opened the food & service great, so it is good to see a return to those days and Iong may they last. The tapas was very enjoyable and great value and the dinner was very tasty, both with good service. We like the small plate option!

“Better than we remembered”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has upped its game. Food was elegant, unusual and beautifully conceptualised. Service slightly over-attentive, but better that way than the other. We enjoyed. We recommend particularly the specials as they seemed more imaginative than the staple menu.

“God food, well presented”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Chose this restaurant speculatively and had the set lunch with some wine. Attentive but not overbearing service and all three of us enjoyed our different choices. Wine was reasonably priced and excellent value. Would go there again

“Hugely disappointing”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This restaurant only receives 71% on Tripadvisor which is not good but from my experience last Saturday lunch time no more than 50% would be a true reflection of everything. The food and cleanliness were poor. The service was adequate.
Why is it when people open restaurants in the UK they do not get proper training in how to run a proper restaurant? Why do the chefs or in this case cooks not get proper catering training? Go to France for a year and learn how it is done!
