Lovely place to enjoy a bottle of wine in the Autumn sunshine. Friendly staff from the concierge who welcomes you at ground level to the manager at the rooftop bar. Not cheap but highly recommended

lovely atmosphere in here with friendly and attentive staff (not overly so), the food was prepared in good time and arrived cooked to perfection, the drinks were great and the wine list was very good. The Oreo cheesecake dessert is delicious and a definite recommendation

Was surprised by the food (given overtly touristy location). Reasonable steaks and burgers, and a general hum of gratification from fellow diners eating the cajun salmon. Came in on Sunday without a booking and was seated reasonably promptly. Pleasant staff. Better than fare in surrounding...More

Hello, the Hallmark Hotel in Bar Hill is about 10/15 min away to The Steakhouse. Best using a taxi as the restaurant is located in the centre of town and not much parking available. Very popular restaurant best to book in... More

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.
