5th lunch visit. Unpretentious cafe with great food. The salad bar is extensive and well thought through with huge variety. My partner loves the steak frites. I have enjoyed a wonderful goats cheese salad previously. Today in the hot food section (pre cooked and reheated...More

We went here for lunch. The food is set out in a counter. I asked if I could have the beef without the rice but some veg. I was told very rudely that that would be £3.50 extra. I could have some plain salad but...More

This restaurant is just amazing. The staff is super friendly, the prices are really cheap for Cambridge, and oh my god the food is good. Especially those damn ribs they do, holy hell! I wish I could give more stars!

Nothing French about this place.... Went for lunch - staff and ambiance nice enough - food was pretty disappointing. It's basically a buffet of pre-cooked meals in a bain-marie (I guess that's French). I guess if it's what you're expecting it's ok, but if not...More

Really want to like this place as my kid attends the French school down the street, but over a few visits have found it to be a bit disappointing overall. One time I asked for a cafe creme and the server looked confused and bewildered...More
