The food and the service were both alright, although all the dishes we had seemed to have the same sauce throughout! The front of house team were a little pretentious which was totally unnecessary. Will we return again? I am not so sure.

I have been a few times now and each time it has been wonderful. The staff are very friendly and the food is amazing. I've always had the tasting menu, it gives you a good idea what the chef is all about. Even though sometimes the food may not be to my taste, I have always really enjoyed it.

I hav eaten here twice now and on both occasions been very impressed. The surroundings are a little austere but the food is wonderful. The menu changes frequently and if you can get a table that looks into the kitchen so much the better. Wines are not over-priced and available in a variety of measures.

Everyone in the party really enjoyed their food, but I agree with the previous reviewer that the staff should speak adequate English.

Went for the 'taste of alimentum' 7 course taster menu with the flight of wine. Real good fun and the food was great. All sort of spoiled by employing waiting staff who could not speak english properly. When a bill comes to £275 for 2 you do not expect to ask the waitress to repeat what she has said several...

My partner and I have just returned from a meal at this restaurant. Let me start by saying we both enjoy fantastic and innovative dining and have visited a few michelin starred restaurants before.

I have visited Alimentum three times in the last 18 months, always had the tasting menu, and each time have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is my favourite restaurant in Cambridge...I even prefer it to the one that has 2 stars (and Alimentum is not as expensive). Some really delicious flavours. The staff are always very friendly and anxious to... More
