Good overall

We decided to have a nice treat for ourselves and found this place. Very modern interior, casual atmosphere, and no dress code, or at least we were allowed in with everyday wear. Fantastic service by some lovely staff, but sorry that we did not 100% enjoy the food, particularly the chicken breast... read more

Brilliant night. Amazing food and fantastic pianist/singer. Great (dangerous!) cocktails... Can not recommend highly enough. We went all in for the 10 course chef's menu - do it! The carrot dish, the plaice, the scallop and duck liver were all truly outstanding... We weren't so blown away by the stone bass - well cooked but not to our tastes.. Venison... More

My family and I have been coming to Alimentum since before it was given its Michelin star. Honestly, we very much prefer the restaurant before it was given its star as all that has happened is that they bumped up their prices by 25%, the food became less impressive and the staff have lost their charm/basic manners that should be...

Have had mixed meals at this place over the last couple of years, went back recently for another look, mainly because you can get in on the day/day before, which is certainly not the case at Midsummer. It will always suffer in comparison to M.H, being in the same city and the same class of food/service, well In theory anyway... More

Went to Alimentum on Monday evening, we were 7 friends catching up after long time. Everything was amazing from start to finish... Food, service, wine ambience! We decided to go for the 7 course menu and we were all amazed how the dishes were prepared and presented on the plate. Service was faultless and very knowledgeable. I high recommend Alimentum...

We went to Alimentum initially not entirely sure what we were going to have. Having initially heard that the portion sizes were on the smaller side we went for the 10 course taster menu. We weren't disappointment in the the slightest. This was like a pleasant marathon with an array of excellent dishes, the kitchen were happy to chop and... More

Have re-established themselves as the best of the best in Cambridge. They need to make sure though food is always hot when it leaves the kitchen as we have had to send 2 meals back. Flavours and presentation excellent. Need more new world white wine choices on the menu. But still a great choice.

Not your usual Michelin-starred restaurant experience! The restaurant is situated out of the city centre on a busy junction below a office development. Parking is not easy, nor is it very convenient. This aside, once you're there, it is an experience. I would say it was very formal, but appears to be trying to be casual. Décor is dark and... More
