TripAdvisor rates this restaurant number 1 in Bonnieux. I don't know if that is true because in the three nights we stayed in the village we dined here twice. The other restaurants will just have to wait. Not only does this restaurant have the virtue of being on the lower level of this vertical village, it has the virtue of... More

We used this restaurant a couple of times while in Bonnieux and each time we had a lovely meal with very friendly, professional service. We will certainly go back when next in the area.

Friends were all to converge on Bonnieux from Hawaii, New York and Washington state. the group from NY couldn't make it so we called to cut the reservation to 4 people. the Washington couple texted that their GPS said they'd arrive Bonnieux at 8 when the reservation was for so we went there alone hoping they'd show up in time....

We love this enchanting restaurant space in the heart of the village. Its on the street level with exposed 14th-century stone-work and arches make it feel more like a cellar. its a magical spot with nearby sister villages of Menerbes and Lacoste. The atmosphere on arrival was electric with the cave like setting with rounded stone ceilings and dim lighting.... More

I went here with my family for dinner and had the most fantastic meal. Their evening "formule" offers a fantastic selection if food for a reasonable 40-50 euros. My main course of lamb with courgette ravioli was absolutely delicious. I have never had lamb that tasted that good. It have a whole new meaning to "melt in the mouth". The... More

We came back after a year to "L'Arome" and were again not disappointed, but very delighted. It is not your typical Michelin-star restaurant, rather a down-to-earth friendly, unpretentious place with a small menu and delicious food. We enjoyed foie gras as starter, and then scallops in a shellfish broth - excellent. I personally also loved the cheese selection and the... More

Probably the best lamb I have ever had. All dishes were tasteful and creative. Very nicely presented. They deserve a Michelin star.

We receiveved olives and a little green amuse made of peas which was good. First courses we ordered fish (truit) tartare. It was hardly edible, both the fish itself and the lentils around it were extremely sour... More

Perhaps it was an off night. We stayed a week in the village of Bonnieux, and saw the crowded restaurant every day - for both lunch and dinner, and thought we would make it the venue for our last evening in town. We reserved for Saturday night, and were seated at a decent table on the outside terrace. We ordered... More
