Having being born and raised in Cambridge, Restaurant 22 was somewhere I'd always wanted to experience and I wasn't disappointed. As an Art student in the 1980's I had always loved the Art Nouveau style stained glass window at the front of this little building...More

We've made several visits to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent - interesting without being overly fussy or pretentious, the service friendly and quirky, and the atmosphere cozy and personal. We'll definitely be back again.

Quirky family-run restaurant where you dine in a setting that looks like their living room. Would've given it a 4* if they were an average type of place. But the hype around the 22 and the eye-watering price tag (£80 just for food for two...More
