Went for a special taster menu that turned out to be more expensive than advertised. But the food was excellent, with good service. I just wish something could be done about the soulless decor. It makes for a very expensive night out.

When we booked, we made clear, on the phone and by email, that one of our party had a nut allergy. But a main came garnished with nuts, not mentioned on the menu, which made the dish inedible: vomiting at best, hospital for intravenous antihistamine at second worst. It spoilt the celebration. Worse they didn't seem concerned. All that apart,... More

For the food offered (i.e. brilliant, delicious, sometimes experimental, seasonally-orientated, Michelin-starred), the service offered (quick, efficient and unobtrusive), the atmosphere (cool and sophisticated) and the price tag, it's hard to see how this restaurant can ever fail to be a winner. We eat here for celebrations, for a weekend treat, for a naughty lunch when the kids are in school.... More

Took my wife for dinner on Saturday evening and tried the 10 course taster menu. The food was decent but we were certainly not wowed enough to return any time soon. When spending £250 for a meal for two you would expect to be blown away. Unfortunately, we were not. We were allocated a table near the service area which... More

What an exquisite meal we had - the whole experience left us buzzing,dish after dish of awesome flavours served by extremely polite and efficient staff. Loved the French guy who served our cheeses - we tried them all and enjoyed them all. Many thanks. Superb ! (A very interesting and enjoyable claret list too)

Mains were also very good.My husband and I had the chocolate fondant with raspberries etc which was divine.The service was faultless and... More

My wife took me here for my 30th birthday and it really didn't disappoint. The restaurant staff were wonderful and very welcoming without making us feel rushed. Their knowledge was excellent and they were happy to explain and recommend things. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the lighting made for quite a nice and intimate setting. We've eaten at a...

If you are looking for gourmet cuisine, then Alimentum is the place to go, stunning mouth-watering flavours, married well with an excellent wine list. Personally, I would prefer a cosy ambience, instead of the ultra modern decor, however, this would not prevent me from visiting, for I simply love the food.

This is a great restaurant but probably not one that i would frequent too often as it was very pricey. The food was very good with really good amuses bouches, lovely palate cleansers and an incredible chocolate desert. The wine , I thought was over priced- I have had the same wine locally and not paid those prices! In general... More
