I went here for a co-workers' dinner, perfectly pleasant despite the uncontrolled misfortune of rowdy other eaters which the service didn't handle very well but I enjoyed the evening none the less.

Good balance of interesting flavours with a choice from a limited lunch time set menu! Nice details, canapés and chocolates with coffee, served attractively. Disappointing though that having been asked when booking our table, and on arrival about food allergies and dietary requirements, low fat and low salt was requested, no suitable desert was available for one of our party!...

My now fiancé and I visited last November for the most wonderful meal. The food is outstanding and all are welcoming and friendly. This was our second visit and I'm sure we will be making our third visit in the very near future.

Visited today. We had a warm and friendly welcome and very good service. I would recommend whole hearted. The food was great I started with the carrot terrine followed by the sea bream and then finished with the lemon. In laws and hubby had other equally delicious courses. Clean plates all round. Marvellous will definitely go back

Lovely meal, the restaurant is a bit bland has little character but the food is good also a bit expensive if you go a la carte.

I had been to Alimentum before for a business lunch and was excited to return with my partner and friends for a social dinner. Overall I was somewhat disappointed, firstly I thought the atmosphere in the restaurant was a little cold, very bright lighting and the furniture looked somewhat worn. My seat at one of the booth was rather uncomfortable.... More

At a recent dinner at Alimentum, the food was absolutely delicious -- rich flavors and very interesting contrast in textures . . . the smooth pate mousse had a crunchy topping -- and the combination of textures was present in all of our dishes. Our table of 6 had several of the dishes -- the pork, the duck, the fish... More

My partner and I like to go to top restaurants to celebrate. We are also trying to get round to visiting new ones. This was our first visit to Alimentum. It was my birthday but we hadn't mentioned that to the restaurant. We chose to dine a la carte as there were dishes on the tasting menu about which we... More
