Best Birthday meal ever.

Have never felt more looked after and welcome in a restaurant. Everything we ordered was matched with recommended wines, the food was absolutely divine. Couldn't fault it. And the cheese trolley at the end was just the icing on the cake. Perfect location for a special occasion.

We made a specific journey to Cambridge on a Sunday to visit Alimentum for our anniversary. Easily found, a modest looking place on the outside, but once you enter, a light, airy and well appointed restaurant. We were greeted by two young gentlemen behind the bar, we we shown to the bar tables and asked if we would like a... More

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday last weekend. We had an early table at 6pm as we were off to see JImmy Carr at 8pm.

We arrived for a Thursday early dinner taking advantage of their early bird 3 course meal. What a great experience! The service was impeccable and the food delightful. Even though we were just doing the 3 course meal we still received canapés, a cleansing dish and fresh bread and butter. I went with the mushroom starter and pork main which... More

To say that this restaurant is fantastic is an understatement. The food, staff, service and experience was amazing. My boyfriend had booked us in to Alimentum for our first year anniversary meal and it was an amazing surprise.

We selected the five course tasting menu, but you get much more. It's hard to put into words how much all four of us enjoyed the experience. Suffice to say, the parents described it as the best meal they have ever had. Added bonus was being at the table next to the window into the kitchen. Highly recommended.

We chose the 7 course menu. On the first course we were knocked out by the flavours and this continued throughout the evening! The staff were knowledgeable,attentive and friendly. The whole experience was exceptional and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends!

This was our second visit to Alimentum and it was definitely a better experience than the first one. It's funny how, when you have first eaten at a restaurant you feel one way about it, then over time your opinion starts to change. Our opinion of Midsummer House has gone downhill dramatically recently, having interacted with the owner, whereas our... More
