The food is presented greatly and the combinations extremely interesting, we had the 7 courses menu and it was amazing, probably the best I had so far. I was not impressed with the wine suggested to me by the sommelier, it went very well with one dish but was quite bad with the other six..Also, I called to book a... More

1st visit to alimentum...and it was a wonderful dining experience...the food,service and ambience are wonderful from 2 delicious and differant amuse bouches through a beautiful lamb starter, continuing with an excellent pork main and according to my wife the best pea and feta risotto she'd tasted and ending with superb eton mess and trifle non of it can be faulted....

Anniversary dinner for my wife and I. No ambience, no tablecloths, plain brown tables. Good and friendly service - but in all other respects very poor. Food fair but for £50 each for two courses - should be such a lot better. Really small portions (big players!) They have wifi but don't allow guests to use it. So, disappointing all... More

In one word, unremarkable. The location of the restaurant means that it was difficult to find parking - we ultimately parked in the multi storey car park over by the cinema. Service was slow - can it really take 10 minutes to make a soda and lime?? Items on the limited (btw, I prefer a limited menu, as I think... More

Booked whilst on our way to Cambridge, the staff could not have been more helpful with the booking. Great food, it was a tough choice between the a la carte and prix fix, we went for the a la carte and enjoyed a great tokaji with the meal. We will definitely return.

Another lovely visit to Alimentum, this time to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. As it was during the week they had few tables which made it feel much more private. We had a great view of the kitchen, so I was able to watch the food being prepared which I love. As always the staff are very pleasant and helpful.... More

If you get the opportunity and wish to 'push the boat out' a bit, I recommend Alimentum. The food is exquisite and the wine list is very good without breaking the bank. Service is as good as you will get anywhere. And I mean anywhere. This is not a budget restaurant. A Mitchelin star tells you that but if you... More

This was a (Sunday) birthday lunch for a group of four. We each had the 3-course, fixed price menu (£29 or, with a glass of wine and coffee/tea, £35). The quality of the food and the service were faultless. As well as the listed three courses, we were given several Amuse Bouches, all delightful. This was a very pleasant two... More

Admittedly a while since last visited, an occasion best forgotten, but the early dining meal the other night was excellent, both in terms of cuisine and value....and indeed service. Portion size larger than remembered, home made bread excellent, good choice of menu, a helpful substitution when couldn't eat something because of content. Didn't feel at all rushed and haven't stopped... More

Definitely worth going to. Cambridge, like Oxford, is full of chain restaurants and mediocre places, so this is a real gem. However it is in an industrial estate quite far from the city centre. If you like relaxed, casual places you will find Alimentum formal, maybe pretentious, but the food is very modern and original and to die for. Very... More
