The team at Alimo draws on the influences of Morocco and Moroccan cuisine to create an exotic dining experience. The menu features typical Moroccan dishes alongside a range of fusion dishes from across the Mediterranean and Andalusia. The three central ingredients in Andalusian cooking are olive oil, garlic, and wine, all of which are used liberally in the Alimo kitchen.

Start with a mini mezze sharing platter of grilled halloumi, Mediterranean vegetables, juicy olives, warm pitta and creamy hummus. For a twist on the traditional, try baked goat’s cheese glazed with orange blossom, honey, roasted beetroot and green chermoula; a smoky Algerian marinade. The traditional dish of falafel is transformed with the addition of crab, and is accompanied by tartare sauce infused with Moroccan spices. The lamb tagine is slow cooked, deliciously tender and sweetened with prunes and raisins. Alternatively, try the fish stew, which comprises white fish, mussels, king prawns and squid cooked in aromatic herbs and spiced tomato broth.

The restaurant dazzles from the outset, from its historic location tucked away in the Whitstable railway arches, to the intricate and colourful paintings across the facade.
