Me and a friend chose to eat here on a Tuesday evening. From start to finish the experience was pleasant. We chose to share a baked cheese, which was served with lovely bread. I had the rib-eye, and a side of greens, and my friend had the sirloin. Both cuts of meat were fantastic and full of flavour. I ordered... More

Booked to eat here as I needed a late table, service and staff very friendly, food was of good quality, however they cook and present the steak in the pan they cook in so your steak that starts out medium rare ends up well done as it is cooking through the the experience. So the solution is order under what... More

A fabulous meal on a busy Friday night. The staff were gracious and attentive and the food was amazing! I felt the prices were really reasonable considering the quality. As a result an over indulgence took place and I don't regret a thing!!!

Not always easy to find great steak here, but The River Bar is a definite exception. Nice views of the Cam, good location, and a nice spot to drop in for a drink, as well.

Lovely setting on the top floor of the hotel, great vibe and really decent food. We retired to the bar for a few drinks afterwards, a busy place in itself with top notch cocktails

What a treat it was too the staff were so professional and attentive even though we were staying in a hotel nearby... More

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.
