Good food, excellent service, and a lovely location. Had Chateaubriand, with an excellent Cotes du Rhone Village, followed by ice cream. Service was attentive, but not over the top, meat was cooked to our requirements. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience. Recommended.

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.

    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.

    The evening started badly as we had to wait almost an hour (from time of arrival) to be served with our first course but the waiter made up for this by providing us with a complementary glass of champagne. Thereafter the service was attentive and the food excellent.

    The Châteaubriand and bottle of red wine deal, two diners for £50, was excellent value. Service and ambience were both splendid. Dessert and coffee rounded off a very special birthday experience.

    It was part of my wife's birthday weekend. We were given a free glass of champagne at the start and a decorated plate with a couple of truffles, both of which were really very nice gestures. The food was excellent, chateaubriand, fries and a side and the complimentary bottle of wine was very drinkable. The staff were great too, the restaurant is also very pleasant. Highly recommended.

    chateaubriand was cooked to perfection, blue as we requested.
    Steak tartare was really really good, but the muscles were amazing, from another world. We were seriously impressed.
    The service was really good, everyone was nice, caring very careful in looking after us.
    Lovely experience.

    The food was nice. It didn't blow me away but what we had I enjoyed. The Bistro was very dark in appearance. Service was good, if not a little to attentive because the restaurant was quite and there was a few staff working with little to do.
