This is an inventive restaurant, and quite different from the run of the mill of Cambridge eating. The service can seem strange, for many of the staff English is clearly not their first language, however the overall standard of the food is high, and it deserves to be considered as perhaps quirky, but good. Whilst it isn't exactly a cheap... More

Sadly this restaurant was not what it says on the tin. The website looks good but the food was disappointing. My partner's fish was served on a mountain of chick peas and sadly there was an attempted charge for an additional glass of wine. Won't be back

This lovely restaurant is quite small, so I'd think booking is essential (our party of eight booked), and the food is quite simply wonderful. They apparently change the menu on a monthly basis, and it's a fixed price menu (with a small supplement for some dishes) of about £40 for three courses (with a pre-starter and a mid-meal sorbet thrown...

We enjoyed a lovely meal here. Having been several times before, we knew we were in for a treat. The food is imaginative, well cooked, beautifully presented and in decent sized portions. It's fine dining but not in that sort of 'self conscious, precious' way sometimes encountered. Highly recommended.

My feelings about Restaurant 22 are mixed. The venue itself is very nice (if a little cold at the beginning of the evening). The dining room is cosy and comfortable. The menu reads well, but sadly my dishes were all served significantly colder than I would expect and were not as tasty as one might have hoped. However it was... More

Staying in Cambridge for a few days we noticed this restaurant close to our hotel. We called to reserve a table which was a good idea because the place was busy through the night. This a quality restaurant with great food well worth the cost. We had three courses and left full which sometimes is not the cases in these... More

This is a restaurant we have been to 4/5 times but is very hit and miss. The food is excellent and consistently excellent even though a little old fashioned. It really is aspiring to be fine dining but is let down by a few things. The room itself is simply the front room of a terraced house which results in... More

Fabulous birthday meal for myself, my boyfriend and his parents. 22 is such a lovely venue with friendly staff and incredible food. Armando is especially knowledgeable and always helpful with wine choices. We enjoyed 3 amazing courses, which were split up by amuse bouche and sorbet. The food was such a high standard and very well presented. I use 22... More
