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.

    Extremely expensive for what it is. Don't mind to pay more if I have to but I expect the food to be at the same level. Won't go back.

    Excellent food in a fabulous location. We had the chateubriand and wine offer, fantastic value.
    Staff pleasant and attentive.

    Lovely ambience, best feature: setting. Steak: lovely. We were cold though, and so were other diners.

  • ((((( 23 January 2017 by John Eaton from Saffron Walden

    We were made very welcome by the staff, who were helpful and charming and attentive. We had booked the Special Chateaubriand offer, and the waitress explained to us exactly what the offer included. The steak itself was done exactly as we had requested and was delicious, as was the Malbec we had with it. We had the Pear and Almond Tart for desert which was OK but not special.

    Excellent visit. Very helpful and welcoming staff, professional and cheerful. The food was incredible, squid meatballs were very tasty and the chateaubriand was cooked to perfection.

    Food was great, service was not! Waited 50 minutes for 1 course!!

  • (((** 9 November 2016 by Paul Woodhouse from Newmarket

    The food was OK but I felt I could have had better and the speed of the starter was very slow, and was billed a service charge. When this happens it should be very good and it wasn't

    Nice evening. Food was good although possibly could have done with a variation on the set menu for the vegetarians.
