Overall a very nice meal although a bit rushed. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was to a very high standard and my partner and myself enjoyed each course very much. We chose from the fixed price menu so given the quality of the food it was very good value. Unfortunately the courses were brought out quicker... More

We had dinner here on a very hot Friday evening and the first great thing about it was how well the aircon worked. Result. From there onwards everything was really good. The service was less intense than other Michelin starred restaurants we've been to, and non the worse for that. The staff were attentive, courteous, knowledgeable, kind and always worked... More

We had previously tried Alimentum shortly after it first opened and it was good; for our second visit, since it gained a Michelin Star, it has obviously stepped up a notch and really was very, very good. I can't quite give it an excellent rating as I have had better elsewhere for similar prices. The staff we're knowledgeable and friendly... More

We ate here some years ago before the Michelin star, and I'm glad to report that yes, it has deserved it. I thought the menu was really interesting: such good and unusual combinations of flavours that all three of us had to have something different for each course so we could try it all, and we had trouble narrowing down...

You will be hard pushed to find a one Michelin star restaurant with better prices than Alimentum. We took advantage of the early evening fixed price menu (£24.50 for three courses and £18.50 for two courses). The food was absolutely delicious (although somewhat meagre portion sizes). The restaurant is a little let down by its location (not a particularly scenic... More

This was our third dining time at Alimentum and we enjoyed another fantastic dining experience. We chose the 'Taste of Alimentum' seven course menu with the flight of wine, each course was wonderfully presented and food was of very high quality, the wine complimenting each course perfectly. Highlights were the quail with lime and peanut and the beef with morels... More
