At AROME, we offer you a unique Mediterranean dining experience. Through the preserved aroma of sprouts and cresses, which we grow on our own “microfarm” and modern smoking techniques using oak and palm wood combined with herbs and essential oils, we take you on an aromatic journey of unrivaled dimensions. Our compositions are derived from the concept of food-pairing – a culinary method used to create new dishes by combining foodstuff and products based on the molecular structure of their flavours. Our distinguished cooking methods preserve the natural taste and nutritive properties. Even our garnishing elements match the aromatic profile of the dish. Open from 6:30 PM to 11:30 PM – experience a new concept in dining

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.
