2 Memorable Meals in Cambridge

I would recommend without hesitation Oleana and the blue room. These are professionally run restaurants serving fresh, local ingredients that put out delicious meals. There was no rushing at all. There was at least a 20-30 min. interval between courses(which is what we like). Conversely, at the Helmand, when my husband asked for a decent interval, we were told that they needed the table. The food was good, not great and they made the atmosphere so uncomfortable, we wouldn't go back. It seems to be a real hot ticket and sometimes this has an effect on the way they treat their patrons.
