An excellent restaurant located in a nice location and an easy access. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very good and refined in taste. A bit expensive but it is still not the most expensive in the city. For the time being, Arome is the best restaurant we visited in the city.

Eating from the fixed price menu, based... More
