This famous little Cambridge restaurant has closed!. I had been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years and have just found out it closed early in May 2014. Another piece of Cambridge history bites the dust! It was a great little place on Free...More

Food and drinks here are very reasonably priced. Just £2.60 for a glass of red wine. (about £4.50 elsewhere in Cambridge) - The wine is quite weak and mediocre, but drinkable. The seating is not very comfortable bu the choice on the menu is huge!...More

Returned to Eraina for dinner after a gap of several years and we weren't disappointed - it was just as good as we remembered. Decent quality food at a sensible price; the desserts were particularly good. The drink options were a bit limited and not...More

Sadly cannot understand favourable reviews - greatly disappointed. Service friendly and helpful, ambiance OK, but food pretty awful : watery soup, cold and soggy chips (served with rice!), tasteless reheated food, poor vegetables, and coffee just as bad. Cheap, but we left most of it,...More
