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.

    Modern setting, love the contrasting flavors of the food, starting from the pre-appetizer all the way to dessert. It felt like a quality English food tasting experience. Service was also great, with a lot of attention given by the wait staff and maitre'd.

    Took my wife for her birthday & we both had a great evening.we tried the tasting menu, which was tasty with some unusual combinations. We were also seated next to the kitchen viewing window, so we could see all the prep & plating. Very good attentive staff.

    Very impressed that, when finding out we were vegetarian, they offered an adapted 7 course tasting menu for us.

    I took my boyfriend to Alimentum for his birthday as a treat and I'm so glad I did! The staff were super accommodating, first class service. I really loved the way they introduced each dish and offered advice on cheese selection (and dessert!). The food itself was so delicious, and despite the relatively small portions compared to other restaurants, I didn't leave hungry as we received lots of extra little add-on dishes which were exquisite. A particular highlight for me was the ox-cheek starter which was one of the best dishes I've tasted. Overall, it seems expensive but for a treat and for the experience you get, it was well worth it.

    The welcome we received was attentive and friendly. We chose the 3 course lunch menu at £37.50 The sommelier was particularly helpful in helping us about the difference between 2 wines we were considering ordering and there was no pressure to go for a more expensive wine. He spent some time explaining the different grape varieties and style of the 2 wines.
    The food was excellent from the amuse bouche to the coffee and chocolates. We particularly enjoyed the fish dishes - the flavours, array of different ingedients and sauces and presentation were outstanding. This was a splendid culinary experience for our special occasion and good value too.

    The service is good enough.
    The food was nice but not good enough to be a one star restaurant.
    The wine list was has to be improved...

    Very good. BFG amazing.

    Overall this was a disappointing meal for a 1* Michelin restaurant. On the tasting menu, the best dishes were the beef and hake, which were at the quality I would expect from such a venue. The mackerel starter was completely overwhelmed by the over-seasoned Bolognese sauce. The rest of the dishes were fine, but nothing stood out about any of them.
