Really excellent, the food was fantastic and service very attentive without being over the top. Not cheap, but well worth it for a special occasion.

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.

    This visit was disappointing and didn't feel special which a Michelin star restaurant should and it was mainly about the food. It feels like the menu could do with a big refresh and the quality of products monitored. We had beef that was chewy and should have been sent back at the time, All the little extras were really nice but the occasion should be about the main courses.The sommelier was really helpful and helped us choose a lovely wine. We spent £283 for 2 people so this needs to be special.

    My wife and I went to Alimentum to celebrate her birthday. This was our first time there. The first impression was that the ambience (and temperature) was a little bit cold (we were the first costumers though). The manager was welcoming. The food we had was really outstanding. On the negative side, the grapefruit foam that they served us before desert was very bitter, and it could have spoiled out taste for the desert, which we both found on the bitter side. In particular, the apple tart tatin, appeared too tangy and the caramel tasted bitter (maybe burnt?). Overall, we really enojoyed the experience, the atmosphere was relaxed.
    If we have too be picky, since we were sitting close to a window to the kitchen, we noticed that some of the cooks were dressed sloppily. This was not what we expected for Michelin-starred restaurant.

    Lunch menu was very good with plenty of choice, service was fine but the decor needs upgrading. Ripped and damaged seats are not a good look.

    We had the tasting menu, it was an amazing experience. The presentation was beautifully artistic and the food was outstanding. My favourite course was a pure vegetarian on - beetroot and goats cheese.

    Our meal was superb, interesting combinations which worked well in a stylish environment. The service was excellent, always helpful and unobtrusive. It wasn't cheap but it was worth it

    The food at Alimentum is always interesting both in flavours and appearance and the wine list has something for everyone. The service is friendly and efficient. It can be a bit quiet away from the weekends but that has the advantage that it's usually easy to get a table.

    I'm going out on a limb here and I'll say that the entire dining experience and particular reference to the food made it the best meal I've ever had.

  • ((((( 21 January 2017 by Norman Fletcher from Cambridge

    Superb food, professional but still very empathetic service helped make this a brilliant way of celebrating my wife's 70th in style.

  • ((((( 21 January 2017 by Ben Richardson from Ely

    It was the greatest dining experience ever in my life and the food was the best I've ever eaten. Nothing after this will probably even come close to being as good as the whole experience of dining at Alimentum.
