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.

    A truly excellent experience. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Evan a pescatarian who is dairy intolerant wasn't a problem. I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    Very attentive staff, friendly and welcoming. The food was very good with excellent non dairy and gluten free alternatives provided to make dining for both of us a very pleasurable experience. There was a good choice from the al la carte menu making it quite hard to choose but the pork starter and the halibut main were delightful and the steak main very well presented and tasty.

    We went for my sister's 30th, we had the 7 course taster meal with wine pairings. Everything was exemplary! The service friendly but professional, the food perfect and the wine well matched and well explained by the Sommelier.

    Sensational meal and exceptional value for money.

    We had the tasting menu. It was beautifully and thoughtfully put together, but I found the quality varied. My daughter was more enthusiastic about each dish.
    I’ve eaten at Alimentum before, last July, and some of the dishes were the same, eg the battenberg dessert, the gin and tonic water ice. The best dish for me was the deconstructed Black Forest gateaux, where the cherry ice cream was divine.
    The service was very good, enthusiastic and genuinely friendly staff.
    The restaurant wasn’t full, but it was very noisy indeed when the other tables were in use. I could only rarely hear the descriptions of the dishes as they were served.
    I was disappointed that we were overcharged for wine and water we had not ordered. I seem to remember this has happened before in other occasions.
