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.

    Excellent food! Thoroughly enjoyed all dishes. We recommend the tasting lunch menu of 7 courses plus the cheeky extra dishes. Fantastic!

  • ((((( 11 January 2018 by Chris Monachan from Cambridge

    We had the tasting menu, and it was great. I've eating at Alimentum a few times but was pleased to see that everything we had was original and not repeated from the last time I tried the tasting menu. The food was excellent. Some very interesting and well prepared courses. The final meat course especially was fantastic.

    I picked a wine I particularly wanted to try from the list, but I would like to go back and try their wine pairings with the tasting menu. Chatting to the sommelier later, he seemed to be very passionate and was able to recommend some excellent desert wine, and allowed us to try something a bit special with the last course. I'd like to try in future his pairings with the tasting menu.

    The staff we excellent, attentive but not rushing. We had a drink in the bar beforehand and we were never rushed to the table. In-fact it was great to read the menu at the bar, and have pre-dinner nibbles served to us.

    The only thing I would change is the gin selection. They have a number of Cambridge gins where are nice, but I'd appreciate some solid classics like Tanqueray 10, Martin Miller or Hendrix (which is actually used in one of the courses). For a pre-dinner martini.

    Overall, the meal and the whole experience were excellent. I have two suggestions:

    1) Although the scallop starter was very tasty, it literally had just one scallop, which seems a bit mean. I would suggest incorporating at least two scallops, and preferably three.
    2) When I ate at Alimentum previously, petit fours were served with the coffee. This time they were served after we had finished our coffee, when we asked for the bill. This seem strange. It would be better to have the petit fours with the coffee.

    Excellent service wonderful food. We had the tasting menu with wine, a very enjoyable experience.

    Pretty good overall. Wines are a bit pricey but very good. Quite a small selection of European wines but lots of wines from the new world. Needs to be balanced.

    Very good. The food was great and Sam, the waiter, kindly helped my Mom write down the names of all the dishes. The Black Forest dessert was beautifully deconstructed with a scrumptious chocolate base

    Yet another really lovely meal at Alimentum. Delicious food, interesting new dishes on the menu along with very attentive and friendly service. Always like the extra touches such as the amuse bouche and pre-dessert. Great wines too chosen by the very knowledgeable Max.
