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.

    Interesting building. Plenty of character.

    Food was good from a limited menu. Chocolate tart was better than expected. Cheese board was amazing value.

    We had the set menu. £16.95 for two courses or £19.95 for three. The extra course was well worth the difference.

    Service was reasonably attentive.

    1:Booking service excellent.
    2:Good ambience in the restaurant.
    3:Very flexible, ie when the set dish was not available there was flexibility to choose from the main menu.

    Nice staff but did not appreciate the automatically added service charge or the fact they bought bottled water to the table opened it and then just put it on the bill without asking if we wanted it. The food was very average - sorry I really loved this place but it has gone down in my estimation.

    Lovely meal - well presented, tasty, attentive service.
    Our fault that we arrived at opening time - 6.00, thus not much atmosphere, although three other tables were soon occupied.

    Service was excellent! Food delicious!

  • ((((( by from Saint Neots

    Very good service with welcoming staff. Our special deal chateaubriand was very good value and perfectly cooked. Fries were thin and not ideal and the salad dull and needs improvement . The house merlot included in the deal was very acceptable. Starter of Scallops was excellent. Coffee plentiful.

    Excellent food. Service perhaps a little too prompt for us but very good; three courses in a little over an hour.

    It was rather disappointing. Food and wine ok, not exceptional, but general feeling of penny pinching eg having to pay extra for bread and vegetables. Green salad dressing meagre and not tossed properly.
