This restaurant is just amazing. The staff is super friendly, the prices are really cheap for Cambridge, and oh my god the food is good. Especially those damn ribs they do, holy hell! I wish I could give more stars!

I've been here several times over the years. In the past it's been generally quite good with a mix of food off the board, hot meals and salad at lunchtime. Recently we went for lunch - the steak et frites is gone, so is the...More

I have been coming here once a month for five years plus. For the last three visits the standard of service, food and attention to detail has gone down quite significantly. A couple of visits ago, the person serving was not able to clearly describe...More

Nothing French about this place.... Went for lunch - staff and ambiance nice enough - food was pretty disappointing. It's basically a buffet of pre-cooked meals in a bain-marie (I guess that's French). I guess if it's what you're expecting it's ok, but if not...More

Really want to like this place as my kid attends the French school down the street, but over a few visits have found it to be a bit disappointing overall. One time I asked for a cafe creme and the server looked confused and bewildered...More

Learn by your costly mistakes. Awful Breakfast, undercooked Hashbrowns Greasy plate with Soggy Mushrooms and imo Traditional English Breakfast does not have rubber 'German hotdogs overcooked Sausage' in it!!! And..........anemic toast which is a major no no.

LGF has been one of Cambridge's gems for the best part of 20 years. These days I tend to more frequently go to its sister restaurant, but yesterday I dropped in for a quick lunch with a friend. The service was friendly and the food...More

Quite expensive I felt. Outskirts of town, shouldn't command overdone prices. However, the food is good, the service is adequate. But the front door doesn't close properly, and the staff made no effort to shut it. Too, a staff member cleaned tables with a pungent...More
