Popular Cambridge restaurant and bar. Have been there several times. Food is good but tends to be on the expensive side. This visit was was with a group of friends for a drink in the bar. Bar is only a small area . Venue is more Restaurant focused

The most memorable thing about Onyx is the consistently professional, friendly, incredible service - it never wavers! We are confident in sending our BnB guests to Onyx as we know they will be looked after, and enjoy amazing food too.
