Cotto Cambridge

183 East Road, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB1 1BG
Find this good restaurant & bakery/café (q.v.) in a converted tramshed.

It's run by award-winning chef Hans Schweitzer, who - as well as travelling the world - (who has twice won the Chef's Olympics).

All is made from carefully-sourced natural ingredients.

An early autumn menu brought 'Cromer Crab & Crayfish Tian with Saffron Aioli'; 'Field & Forest Mushroom Soup with Garlic Toasts' and 'Pink-Roasted Angus Beef Fillet Carpaccio with Parmesan Crisp & Herb Salad' amongst the starters.

'Roast Supreme of Guinea Fowl with Cabbage, Rosemary, Thyme & Pancetta'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Turbot & Hand-Dived Scallops with Fish Jus & Herbs'; 'Salt Marsh Lamb Fillet with a Herb Crust' and 'Dry-Aged, Grass-Fed, Sirloin Steak with Peppercorn Sauce' listed in the main courses.

Their desserts - such as 'Single Estate Chocolate Ganache Cake'; 'Tarte au Citron' and 'White Peach & Vanilla Compote' maintain the high standard.

Indeed Hans is also a top-class chocolatier - and chocolate cakes, including wedding cakes, can be ordered.

Service is also excellent - but booking is a must.
