Amazing food, delicious wine, great service! Also enjoyed being able to see into the kitchen and watch the food being prepared. Thanks for a fantastic evening.

Winner of 3 stunning AA Rosettes and praised in some of the industry’s most prestigious guides, Alimentum offers modern European fine dining. The late 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 interesting fine wines, with a focus on boutique French, Italian and Californian producers. The inviting bar area is ideal for a glass of Champagne before you start your meal-or a premium whisky afterwards

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.

    From arrival to departure, we were made to feel like part of the family and each and every element of the meal was explained in beautiful detail.
    What a wonderful experience and a delight on the taste buds

    The standard of cooking continues to be excellent. I come to Alimentum only occasionally, perhaps once or twice a year, but felt that staff, having been very stable over quite some time, must have moved on. There were some new faces - and new voices, not all of them as clear as they might have been when describing the dishes at table. Aside from this, no complaints at all. Excellent value.

    We booked for a birthday dinner on the basis that the restaurant had one Michelin star. However we learnt beforehand that Michelin had withdrawn this last year and were surprised that no one from the restaurant informed us. We also felt that the restaurant should have cut its prices in response. When we arrived we found the restaurant almost empty with only a skeleton staff of men only. We booked the seven-course tasting menu. We were a bit disappointed that one of the courses was just a palate cleanser. Otherwise the meal was very good displaying a high level of technical artistry and flavour. It's difficult to understand why Michelin removed their star. However we were extremely disappointed that after the restaurant promised us that we would receive a special birthday card signed by the chef this seemed to have been completely forgotten. On the whole the service was a bit cold and almost resentful after the subject of their downgrade was brought up.

    We decided to try the set lunch. The food was superb, beautifully presented and utterly delicious. We were pleasantly surprised to be served several ‘amuse bouches’ too. What a treat and amazing value. The staff were all cheerful and professional. A perfect lunch!

    Wonderful food, but I find the design of the restaurant a bit spartan, and not cozy. The waiting staff was good, but perhaps a little bit too attentive, which didn’t make it very relaxing.

    Overall was quite disappointing. For a restaurant that used to have a Michelin star, it did not seem to understand fine dining very well - from the decor to the service, this restaurant was a big miss.

    Poor .. food was over salted and inimpressive

    Excellent food, drinks & service! Would recommend to friends & family. Only points I can think of for improvement would be the location & the interior of the restaurant. But overall very good.

    Great service! When the duck was undercooked , they give us a new duck dish which was perfect in every sense. The size chuan pepper with the sweet taste is truly creative, delicious and intriguing.

    As for the ambience, I think the lighting can be better to get a more intimate atmosphere.
