Hadn't been to 22 for a while and was quite excited by the look of the menu. Unfortunately the execution was very average and amateurish; the wine list is unimaginative; the service equally average. No need to rush back any time soon. Pity!

Had high hopes of this restaurant but I feel it was let down by the service and the quality of some of the dishes. Lets start with the good things: Starters: Very nice - I had the celeriac veloute and my partner had the salmon, but very enjoyable. Desserts: Tatin and Sticky Toffee pudding, both excellent and well presented. Bread:... More

Old style , established upmarket restaurant on the outskirts of Cambridge. The main dining area is quite small and intimate. I first came here almost 15 years ago and it hasn't changed much at all during that time. I hadn't been back for a while - the cosy and romantic atmosphere is not always our preferred choice. We've tended towards... More

Lovely food served in a restaurant with a unique setting. I have eaten here during December at lunch times and have never been able to find a fault with the food. Everything from the selection of fresh bread (especially the Guiness bread), to the lovely rabbit main course was spot on. The setting is lovely, in a converted Victorian house... More

We ate in the private dining room upstairs for a corporate dinner. The food was excellent, service was attentive at all times and nothing was too much trouble. It's an ideal setting for a business dinner where discussions are continuing from the Boardroom and you don't want to shout to be heard.

Delightful intimate venue, perfect volume classical music in the background, 2 eccentric waiters on duty, good wine - a little disappointed with the menu though - not exciting and not presented with any finesse. The menu had changed the evening we went and definitely needed some work to ensure that Restaurant 22's reputation stays intact. Overall a very pleasant evening,... More

Wonderful lamb starter was highlight, but all courses were very good - my wife loved the rabbit main - also the between course extras such as the sorbet were great.

I'd wanted to experience 22 for such a long time and I was not disappointed. It's an intimate venue and one of few like this I have ever been to. The warm greeting broke the ice as guest are offered up the table of their choice, soon after which we were offered an amuse-bouche, a selection of bread and drinks.... More

We like to pace a meal but tonight the three hour evening was too long. The menu was interesting and the food mostly delicious. The sardines I really enjoyed but sadly the crab mayonnaise smothered the flavor. We ordered two half bottles of wine but I had almost finished my main course before wine glasses that we had asked for... More
