An elegant retreat, Hotel du Vin Cambridge has a trademark French bistro, a vibrant open kitchen and a quirky outdoor cigar shack. The former University-owned building has a cosy library, while the labyrinthine cellar bar features seductive alcoves and a sophisticated Laroche wine tasting room.

The Hotel du Vin menu celebrates elegant French bistro-style dining, using fresh premium ingredients. Delicate starters such as seared scallops give way to bold mains, which include rich duck confit and wild venison haunch with cranberries and bitter chocolate.

The exquisite Hotel du Vin wine list is brought to you by the head sommelier, featuring a huge variety of carefully selected bottles. A Sunday lunch menu and an array of delectable desserts also feature.

Opposite Fitzwilliam Museum, Hotel du Vin Cambridge offers sophisticated French bistro-style dining in the centre of Cambridge. The historic King's College is just a 6-minute walk away.

    Very good food and service but the wines were too expensive; cheapest red £27.
    Atmosphere was also good with no background music thank goodness.
    Go downstairs for coffee ; many interesting nooks and crannies to get cosy in on lovely old soft chairs but let down by only one member of staff.
    We went on the early evening offer which was very good value but again the wine!
    So apart from my two minor moans a very present evening.
    I am going to say yes to a recommendation but only on an offer basis because of the cost of the wine.

    with 2 waiting staff that had only been there 1 week, they didn't realise when they brought our mozzarella and tomato salad that there was no mozzarella on it Eventually the manager came over and rectified the situation. Food on fixed price menu was a poor choice of only 3 items for each course. We wouldn't do that again. waiting staff are pleasant but kitchen need to get their act together. Other "full prjce" customers were sending there food back and some left altogether. When we paid our bill the manager gave us our coffees with their compliments which was a nice gesture but wouldn't go back again due to kitchen. Shame as it's a nice Bistro with a goid atmosphere. We both ended up wishing we had saved our £40 and eaten at home.

    The interiors of the restaurant were a bit disappointing. The starters and the bread were very nice. The mains (scottish salmon steak, and the beef burger) however, were a bit let down; nothing more special than what you could get in a pub.

    We did the 3 courses for £19.95 with a glass of house wine - it was lovely. The venue was a great bistro type setting and although a little dark, it was very romantic with the candle. My partner and I had a different choices for all the 3 courses and we were both very happy with our choices. The food was excellent. With the Fresco menu the deal was amazing.

    Service was excellent and the food was delicious. They knew it was our anniversary and gave us special treatment.
