We were impressed at the way the staff managed the floor so well. They were attentive, quick and professional. Out shared entrees (2 between 3) were excellent and were almost enough as a main. When our mains arrived (Lamb Shanks, Pork Belly and Scotch Fillet)...were well presented - but a little under-seasoned and, if anything, too generously large. The cuts of meat were superb - but I would rather have a little less meat, a little more seasoned.More

We had visited this restaurant a few years ago and enjoyed it. I think this visit was even better. The staff were excellent, there was a nice choice on the menu, it was delivered quickly considering they were busy and the food was excellent. I...would most certainly go back again if in Cambridge and have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.More

After a hot day exploring the Hobbiton Movie set, we chanced upon Onyx and hit the jackpot! My husband and I shared the prawn cocktail (which was pricey but the BEST prawn cockatil we've ever had!) and the platter which was delicious. Well catered for...kids and adults alike, we had a fantastic meal and would certainly come again when in Cambridge!More

My mum celebrated her 65th Birthday with a group of friends earlier this week. Sadly due to Covid we were unable to fly home from London to enjoy her celebrations. I contacted the owner of Onyx a few days before my mum’s reservation to see...if I could do something special upon arrival. Terry was absolutely amazing totally went the extra mile, not only wonderful service at the restaurant but arranged flowers for my mum, bubbles on arrival & sent me photos of the group together. Thank you Terry & the team so very kind.More

Thank you Sharlene, we felt for your family in lockdown in London, and it was a pleasure making arrangements so that your mum had an enjoyable evening.

Went for lunch (six adults). The starters and the mains were of a very good quality. Didn't order drinks (we don't drink in the afternoons) or desserts (we were really full with the meal).

The gurnard was on point, very tasty. Service friendly and efficient. Meals didn’t take long to come out which tells me they have a good process in the kitchen.

I always love the atmosphere at Onyx and again I was not disappointed this time. This was my work team’s Christmas lunch party. We were seated at a table outside which gave us a welcome gentle breeze in the hot Summer day. The service was...excellent. Just the right amount of attention without being invasive. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Sadly we were too full to sample a dessert but I have had the crème brulee in the past and can highly recommend it. I am always nervous about recommending a restaurant in case the service is different from what I have experienced, but with Onyx it is always great and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my family and friends.More

I have never found the Onyx to be anything other great, service is always good, food is always good, staff are always good, and as the 'go-to' local I cant recommend them highly enough.
