This place used to be fantastic, with a Michellin star chef and great hosts, we were spoilt to have something so local & so special. However since it has been taken over & the chef replaced. The food is very average, infact so much so...we decided to skip desert & grab that on the way home from the local gas station. 😞 meh!More

Wandered past the restaurant and decided to give it a try...... what a find. I was warmly greeted walking in. Had an excellent 'Toblerone' cocktail to start off with while reading the menu.

Nice environment, the young team need to relax and engage better. Menu selection was ok, a lot of fried food lacked imagination. Food was served warm not hot, even the fries! Cocktails were very average sadly! Dessert was average, I’d skip dessert to be honest....Great place for Cambridge.More

If you like watching the world go by, this is the spot to be. The outdoor area overlooks the main roundabout in Cambridge so it is perfect for the luxury of watching the world go by. The food and drink were excellent however the sad...state of the outdoor sitting area lets Alpha down. If you can overlook that then do visit them.More

Came here for lunch with the hubby one wet Tuesday, The did a fantastically poured beer and delicious hot chocolate but that's all the positives. My husbands ribs tasted like they had been boiled and then just slathered with sauce and my Open-Brisket Cobano was...that wet that the bread underneath was soggy and inedible, such a shame. It was really cold in the restaurant which didn't make it a pleasant place to sit. The place has lovely decorMore

First time back in about a year. I remember Alpha Street as a lovely villa with fireplace and delightful food. This time around the service was still good but the food style had changed. Pub style beer-battered chips with everything, soggy slaws, battered prawns with...no flavour other than salt, and soggy quinoa "salad" soaked in salty orange sauce. It is possible we just went there on a bad day.More

Located in a older building just off the Main Street this restaurant had an interesting mix of flavours with their dishes. Not what was expected but not bad either.
