As a vegetarian I was delighted with the cauli main dish. It would of been nice though to have a choice.

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.

    Disappointing overall

    Fantastic food and service as usual. A wonderful way to spend Father's Day. They even made my 5m old daughter very welcome, never once were we made to feel like an inconvenience and no one bat an eyelid as my daughter dropping food (which we picked up).

    Fabulous 7 course meal with friendly, attentive service which really made our meal into a memorable occasion. The food was amazing - each and every course brought surprising, new combinations of flavours, textures and colours, beautifully presented and created with immense skill, thought and attention to detail. Favourite courses are incredibly difficult to choose but one of us picked the sea bass as favourite, another loved the fillet steak and the cheeses were absolutely wonderful.

    My husband and me enjoyed the lunch at Alimentum very much.
    My favourite course was the cauliflower and seabass. My husband loved the mackerel dish. Both of us enjoyed the the battenburg and him the black forest...we loved the gin and was refreshing and just the thing before the desserts...The best feature about Alimentum is the food, creatively presented and packed a punch... Everything else including the ambience was quite understated...and didnt distract us from the drama of the food...An enjoyable experience!
