Looking for a good British restaurant among the chains in a tourist area is difficult. I have passed Galleria before, but this time I can spot a table in the early evening and dived in. It was early evening and just getting busy, but the staff was very professional and attentive to every table, even for a solo diner. I... More

We had a delicious meal after punting on the adjacent river. The food was very good, I had the 'special' halibut which was superb and the service was very friendly We also came back later in the day and had a cup of tea sat outside on the balcony just above the river watching the chaos on the water!.....

Had dinner here with a friend. Loved the light and airy restaurant, we sat on the mezzanine floor overlooking the restaurant. I had the mussels for starter and the monkfish main which were both great particularly the monkfish. The level of waitress service was very good. Only negative was the paper napkins but otherwise very good.

Been here many times--food is very good and you can also sit on a table by the riverside on the canal, that is lovely. Waiting staff are pleasant and overall I really like it when I go there.

Saturday lunchtime and we were looking for a late lunch near Quayside. I suggested to my friends that, instead of the more glossy restaurants, we go to Galleria which is situated next to the Cam and where you can enjoy the Cambridge atmosphere. We weren't disappointed: the staff, especially who we took to be the manager, were very attentive and... More

Description
The Galleria restaurant in Cambridge has the most brilliant location at the foot of Magdalene Bridge beside the River Cam, just in one of the deepest parts where the punters come unstuck. With a pair of terraces beside the river, diners have a ringside seat not only for the punting circus, but also for the pleasure of one of England’s loveliest views. This three-level continental restaurant is light and airy, romantic and pleasant, with wrought-iron balconies, ferns, French prints, bistro-style seating. Signature dish is poached fillets of monkfish in lemongrass with sweet red chilli cream sauce and tiger prawns with leeks and mushrooms served with rice. The very reasonable wines tend to favour Old World vineyards.
