Arrived here on an extremely wet and blustery evening on the advice of a local chef who had once trained the chef of this place. It was 7:30 and the place was empty except for 3 tables. There was only one lady serving and she...More

We chose this restaurant from Trip Advisor. It is a local bistro with very plain atmosphere, a bit out of the way. We were disappointed by the amount of English spoken by most of the other patrons. But the food was delicious plus plus. We...More

We had the three course lunch here (€21,- per person) and every dish was delicious - and pretty to look at! Great combinations of textures, colors and taste. Their wine selection is quite good as well. We came by around 11:00 on a Saturday without...More

I’d read the reviews and was looking forward to what we hoped would be a real treat. Sadly not, the food was disappointing, dull, and distinctly amateurish. So much so that we wondered if the chef only cooks dinner but not lunch. One to chalk...More

On a Thursday evening after a 430 mile journey from the UK all I wanted was simple food. Quite why I chose one of the best Dijon restaurants (it might be Tripadvisor’s fault) didn’t make sense when all I wanted was a pizza and a...More

The resteraunt is about the food and not the looks. Set menu 36 euros amuse, starter of escargot, main veal, cheese dish, desert vanilla ice apricot. The amuse was strange and didn’t taste that well, the starter was plain, the veal tasted bland with over...More

The restaurant was fully booked for the only night we were in Dijon, so we strolled down from our hotel to see if we could get in at lunchtime, because the TripAdvisor reviews were so good. We could, just - we got the last table...More

We dropped into l'Arome on our last night in France based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and it was the perfect end to a great vacation. A small, unobtrusive restaurant in a side street off a large plaza, this is a real gem with outstanding food...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.
