Alimentum, Cambridge. in United Kingdom & Ireland: Dining Posted November 9, 2011 I do apologies I had no clue that I had to explain my reasons for visits. Visit 1, I wanted to try it out as I had heard it had opened too much expectation. Visit 2, My mothers birthday (had an amazing desert on the first visit so wanted to try it again)Visit 3, I was on a night out with a friend and this was our pre night out dinner.And I also said nothing about not enjoying the dishes. I found it to be mostly bland and unmemorable so I would guess that is why a desert that tasted of toothpaste stood out. As long as the food is edible and the result is me not being hungry at the end, I would generally not say I didn't enjoy it. If I were to elaborate on the bland comment I guess it would stem from most of the dishes being soft textured with over use of puree's and mouses with light sauce and soft meat. On my first visit I had a desert served in a jar with smoke and it was one of the finest things I have ever eaten. I also like to revisit some restaurants to see if they improve or get worse. I will generally do this until I feel it is not worth revisiting or until I get bored of the menu. I eat out a lot.On the last visit I also found the service to be terrible with the waiter not knowing what any of the dishes were as they came out. We even started to have fun, asking on one occasion if it was salt marsh lamb, knowing it was beef. He replied with a yes.
