Even though this restaurant lost its Michelin star and soon after its chef a year ago it is still doing well and is a great place to dine. Tables are not densely packed, food is tasty and service is impeccable.

Leading the brigade at Restaurant Alimentum is acclaimed Head Chef, Samira Effa. Samira's belief in working with fresh, and seasonal ingredients is paramount, bringing a burst of culinary flair to this elegant Cambridge restaurant.

Expect to see some big and bold flavours on the Alimentum menu, with inspiration taken from the chef's previous head chef mentors. There is also a nod to Samira's Iranian-Nigerian heritage, which is seen in dishes such as stone bass, smoked aubergine, saffron and red pepper.

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.

    Alimentum is such a hidden gem! The food first and foremost was divine! Each element of the dish for each subsequent course was so well and thoughtfully put together. I had the quail with kohlrabi and Thai tea for starter, duck for main and the lemon cheesecake for pudding. Amuse bouche of cucumber gazpacho and horse radish was a delightful surprise! The waiting staff were so friendly and prompt with suggestions - the dessert wine paring as suggested by our waiter was spot on. Alimentum are very inclusive too with a mix of menus to accommodate all price budgets - Tasting menu to 2/ 3 courses. I would highly recommend and would come back when I visit Cambridge next.

    Fabulous meal
    Delicious flavours
    Very attentive waiter who made us smile, but unfortunately, did not know the menu very well and could not explain any of the dishes, had to keep asking the chef.

    Excellent tasting menu - inventive, well presented and delicious.
    . Attentive staff
    As with many restaurants, there are some eye-watering prices for wine (there are a few reasonable value bottles). I can never understand why restaurants do not add a fixed mark up - say £15-toeach bottle, and turn their stock over faster. Thecost of keeping a wine for which you have paid £30, say, for 5 years is going to be £10 - £15, and eventually you will have to remainder it

    It was excellent, we loved everything about it.
    I am lactose and gluten free and they were happy to make something specially for me, nothing was too much trouble

  • ((((( 27 June 2018 by Beatrice from cambridge

    We had the fixed lunch menu and it was absolutely fantastic.
    The flavours in all courses were stunning. I had been here recently and wanted a desert which was only on the tasting menu and they changed it.
    Just love it here.
