I couldn't have asked for better service and food as my boyfriends birthday meal! We arrived to be greeted and our coats to be taken, followed by being shown round to our table and offered drinks. The knowledge of the waiter about the wine was exceptional- suited well to my wine lover boyfriend. The food was amazing and very filling,... More

Our annual visit for a lunch before Christmas and the quality was as great as ever. As usual we had the taster menu for the table and it did not disappoint. The wines chosen also lived up to their billing and the staff were efficient and attentive. However the room was quieter than in the past which meant it lacked... More

An excellent meal, a bit out of town and therefore a bit isolated from nice places to go for a drink if you arrive a bit early, as we did.

This is my first ever negative feedback on trip advisor. In search for a special birthday celebration for a special family member we decided to have dinner at this supposedly posh restaurant. On arrival we handed over a specially tailor made birthday cake with special sparkling candle to the staff asking them to serve us after dinner, a surprise for... More

Ive visited Alimentum a number of times since it opened and its invariably been very high quality food, good service and reasonable value for money. Visited for lunch yesterday and wasnt disappointed, 3 courses for £35 and everything was very good, 3-4 additional amuse bouches were very well received. Undoubtedly one of the best in Cambridge, desserts are always superb.

This visit on 23rd Dec. was my 3rd. The first two were just passable,bearing in mind it has 1Star Michelin rating. The third was very poor. The atmosphere is slightly foreboding,rather dark and uninteresting. It was about half full. Service is ostentatiously polite. The menu is not too long but rather lacking in detail. I was with two sons and... More

We were a group of five and went for the taster menu. The food was excellent with really good quality ingredients. Good selection of wines, although slightly over priced. The service was good but we found that the explanation of the food could have been better and done with a bit more flair and interest. However, when the manager did... More

I first went to Alimentum just after it opened some years ago, and was underwhelmed then. I returned recently and was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent - I had a starter of beetroot and goat's cheese, followed by duck breast. The flavours were vivid, and complementary, and the presentation was spot on. Some lovely bread was served as well.... More

My title is personally justified, yet I hesitate to continue without adding that my wife and I only just made the lunch service that we had reserved for (arriving at 1.57pm instead of 1.30pm - yes, we were late). Having said this, it did not seem that we were being seated (embarrassingly late) whilst all around were on desserts and... More

Perhaps I was expecting more to a Michelin Star restaurant given that I have been to quite a number of the star restaurants and I would have to say the food and service was quite average to my liking. I initially booked a table for dinner to celebrate my bf's birthday and then realised the price (£70 per person) was... More
