Our party of seven encountered a friendly and efficient staff who were attentive without being too obtrusive. The meal was of excellent quality, especially in view of the great value-for-money. Several of my friends said that they would return, a view I shall endorse in practice.

Been previously and like before didn’t disappoint. Good location, good food, good ambience.. what more do you need from a restaurant; aside from the fact the starters and mains were so substantial that I couldn’t tackle a pudding. Great way to finish a day of sightseeing and shopping in Cambridge.

Cau Cambridge was excellent, We had the best steaks ever with a delicious Malbec. However our reservation with Quandoo had not been received! They very kindly made room for us anyway. Next time I will just phone them.

A really lovely restaurant in central Cambridge. Service was friendly and attentive, and we got a seat in the window with great lighting and views onto the street. My halloumi salad was a generous portion size, and the steak was excellently cooked.

Busy but very good service and the meal itself was again excellent. Wine list is fine. Recommend the hummus starter and (for sharing if you are not sure about calories!) the cornflakes dessert!

The food was excellent, as always. The service was also good, but the staff were a little low to give us the bill and then also took a long time to pay the bill.
