Winner of an impressive Michelin star, 3 stunning AA Rosettes and praised in some of the industry’s most prestigious guides, Alimentum offers modern European fine dining. Discerning restaurant critic AA Gill described Alimentum’s creations as a ‘gastronomic pleasure’.

Embracing the use of slow cooking techniques to accentuate texture and flavour, head chef Mark Poynton crafts an innovative repertoire of dishes. Refined offerings on the Alimentum menu include quail parfait with onion and chicory, or beef sirloin and cheek with onion ash and carrot. For dessert, experimental infusions of flavour include dark chocolate with pear, olive oil and sea salt, or cherry with pistachio and tarragon.

Described as ‘illuminating’ by The Good Food Guide, the Alimentum restaurant wine list brings together bio-dynamic and organic blends, sourced from boutique producers. Made using fresh seasonal fruits and homemade fruit purees, Alimentum cocktails are mixed by talented flight mixologists.

A glittering jewel on the UK restaurant scene, Alimentum Cambridge is championed as the ‘hottest ticket in Cambridge’ in The Good Food Guide 2012. Cambridge Rail Station is a 3-minute drive away. Parking is available at the NCP car park on Clifton Way via Cherry Hinton Road.

    We had an exceptional evening with Alimentum. From the time we entered the restaurant we felt pampered and special. The staff were charming, friendly and most of all knowledgeable. The service was responsive but not intrusive. At all times we felt the staff were aware of our needs. From filling up of glasses to clearing the table was quick and efficient. The food was sublime. Beautifully presented and delicious. The small touches like complementary fillers from the chef added to the evening. I look forward to my next visit.

    By far the best, and most beautiful, tarte tatin I've ever had.

    Went for lunch & fully enjoyed a three course meal along with all the other exciting things in between. For the wine we went on the recommendation of the waiter & matched the food perfectly.

    Great service & feel to the place - looking forward to returning in the hopefully not to distant future.

    Slow lunch service, but food excellent and staff very good. Decor need updating... looks like an 80s wine bar.

  • ((((( 13 March 2017 by Beverly Read from Cambridge

    Food was excellent, especially the ox cheek starter and veal main. Decor and surroundings very good, comfortable and plenty of room. The restaurant could be a bit better lit, it was hard to see some of the dishes. Portion sizes a little small, we were both hungry again before long! Wine and other drinks were all excellent, a very good selection. Overall a very pleasant evening and good value for money.
