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 excellent Sunday lunch with our daughters and son-in-law. We ate a la carte and we all enjoyed our choices, which were beautifully cooked, delightful and surprising. The food is reasonably priced for a Michelin star restaurant but the wine list lacks a range of less expensive options. The service is outstanding; both professional and knowledgeable, and friendly and helpful, which makes Alimentum smart but not stuffy.

    A great dining experience.

  • ((((( 27 November 2016 by Brian Warren from Cambridge

    There was a warm welcome when we arrived on a fairly chilly November day and we were shown to our well positioned table . The waiting staff were very courteous and knowledgeable about the dining and wine menu. We selected from the three course menu which had some varied dishes - the thought of eating seven courses at lunch time was a little too much!

    Overall a very pleasant experience with the food, wine and staff all contributing to make it a memorable occasion.

    What an outstanding meal, probably one of our best ever. We have eaten in many 3* restaurants around the world and your meal was right up there! The subtle balance of flavour and texture was amazing and the wine flight paired perfectly. The food is second to none and the staff superb. we also love the restaurant decor. Well done to all.

    We opted for the tasting menu - one normal and one vegetarian version. Food was very good, well presented and very tasty - some unusual and interesting ingredient combinations. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Sommelier very knowledgeable.
