Had a very pleasant lunch here on a stopover to skiing. Limited menu but very reasonably priced. Scallops with fresh veggies or mushroom soup were starters, duck or sea bass as mains and chocolate mousse or clementines en compote as dessert. All very tasty. Nice...wine menu and prompt service. Great value. Highly recommend!More

I rarely write reviews saving those moments for a worthy experience. Today was one of those. I have often dreamed of opening a restaurant with the same concept as I encountered today at lunch… a limited menu with 2 options for the appetizer/ 2 options...for the main/ and 2 options for the desert… with the idea of having each choice be spectacular. We covered the entire menu between the two of us. I would only assume the menu changes regularly but today the shrimp wrapped in pastry and the cauliflower soup with ham as appetizers; the cod dish and quail for main plates and the white chocolate dessert were cooked to perfection. The flavors were explosive and the textures were complimentary. It is slightly off the beaten path and the simplicity of the ambience helped keep the cost to a very reasonable and attractive option. Kudos to the chef!! A not to be missed experienceMore

New owner, new cooking team since 1. June 2020 (after lockdown) - 4 courses all very complex but extremely tasteful, all based on French cuisine with an Asian touch, rich combinations of surprising but very enjoyable tastes - great experience, great value

I agree with all those who praise this small restaurant and give an adequate description. We loved our visit, though we did have trouble booking by telephone and hope that they will make booking on-line a possibility. The food was absolutely delicious and so creative...and the service was excellent. However, I do have one story to add which may help demonstrate the kindness of the married couple who run L'Arome. My wife has difficulty walking long distances so we arrived by taxi but when we tried to book one for our return were told that there wasn't one available for another hour. The owners then made the extraordinarily kind gesture of driving us back to our hotel in their car. This kindness has made our visit to L'Arome very special and will not be forgotten. Thank you so much.More

In the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Quarters, close to the Place de la Republique, this petite restaurant is located. It’s a husband and wife team, catering for about 10-12 tables. This combined with it’s high Tripadvisor rating means that you have to make a reservation. The menu...is very small, one can only choose dishes from the menu. For dinner 3 courses were €35 and 4 courses €40. But don’t let these “restrictions” bring you down - definitely try to eat at L’Arome during your stay in Dijon. The dishes served are devine. Starters, mains and desserts are all of a very high quality. Our favourites were the tomato and shrimp starter and the duck main. Service was very friendly and professional. The wine menu was small but good, including half bottles of wine.More

At a good price! The resto is manned by a husband and wife team. She works front of house, he's the chef. Intimate and modern ambiance. Good lunch menu, though, limited. We had fish and duck plates for main course. L'arome is a good example...of France's high standard food—a norm for good resto to serve high quality food, fresh ingredients creative presentation at affordable price (unlike many USA resto—high price and blah food). We appreciate small menu and/or a la cart. Sometimes, the serving is slow bc of its intimate size. If informed in advance, they usually oblige. In this case, we finished lunch in less than 1.5 hr. ;) Our guide's recommendation to eat here instead of a michelin resto and glad we did!More

And to think I almost did not make a reservation here because I thought 49 Euros for a 3 course meal was too expensive. Ha! Thankfully I did because it turned out to possibly be my best dining experience ever. Small, quaint room with 6...to 8 tables; every course was delicious; had an alternative English menu (thank you!); and friendly, unpretentious service. Fine French dining (without any stuffiness) at its best. This meal would have cost 2 to 3 times as much here in Dallas. Last meal of our stay in Provence - left the best for last!More

I highly recommend this small, chic restaurant that serves the best food (presented beautifully) I've ever had. France has high standards for quality of food and L'Arome takes it to a new level. The amuse bouche was a fresh delight on a home made cracker....An asparagus appetizer was flavored and textured to perfection. I had a boneless lamb entree that was tender, moist and accompanied by a roasted vegetable confitte with a sauce that made every bite "perfection"! The desserts has the same precision of deliciousness. The menu is limited but it's the only way you can produce food of this caliber at a reasonable cost (I've spent more on burgers & salad in philly)!More

I wouldn’t take the chance of missing out. We booked for a rainy Sunday lunch and it was full. I’m sure your hotel will arrange the booking for you.
