Café & Restaurant

The Alimentarium will feed your mind, with exhibits, presentations and videos designed to nourish your knowledge of food and nutrition. We think about your stomach too, though! After all, as the saying goes “a hungry belly has no ears!”

The Restaurant

Our chef and his team concoct a variety of tasty seasonal dishes to add a gourmet touch to your visit. With a dish of the day, a chef’s special, a vegetarian meal and a children’s meal, there’s something to suit all tastes and purse strings!

The comfortable armchairs in our calm, light and spacious lounge are great for just sitting back and relaxing as you enjoy our range of drinks (coffee, fruit juices, wines, etc.), seasonal treats, salads and hot or cold sweet or savoury snacks. There are plenty of fun and educational magazines and books lying around too, for you to leaf through should you wish! Not forgetting our nearby Shop, a real treasure trove...
