Peppercorn sauce was great accompaniment, and chips were brilliant - crispy outside, tender inside. Struggled to eat...More

Amazing cocktails made by experts. The steaks are to die for and a great choice of starters and deserts. Service was excellent and the table had views of the river. Second time of visiting and both occasions were equally as fantastic.

We had a lovely meal tonight. My friend didn’t get on with the original fish dish she’d ordered. When the waiter saw that, he offered to replace it with the salmon, insisting that she should enjoy her meal. Nothing was too much trouble for them,...More

We received lovely service from our waiter. He was very attentive. Our steaks were also cooked very well. The fillet was very smooth, no fat in sight! The cocktails were also very nice.

Good location, good service. Good atmosphere. Having dined at Bar 6 at the Varsity Hotel this restaurant has a very similar menu. Would go there again.

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.
