“Everything perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

What can I say - great quality and value for money.
We are at the end of a ten day French journey and this meal was one -if not the best.
Can't say better than that......oh yes and service was excellent.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Stayed in Saumur for two nights and unfortunately almost everything was shut on the first night. After the previous reviews l'Aromate was our choice for the last night of our trip. Food was beautifully presented and very good.

“A wonderful restaurant two mins walk from centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is our absolute favourite restaurant in Saumur!!!! Our lunch today was delicious - seafood rillettes, pork tenderloin with the most amazing lentils and mushrooms, followed by poached pear with a raspberry foam....three courses for 18 Euros!!! If you love cooking, sit at Table 15 which is right next to the kitchen window and watch the experts at work. Our wine choice today was inspired...St Nicolas de Bourgueil Evenement 2009. Aromate staff are very welcoming and are well able to help me with my gluten free choices. Cant wait to go again!!!!!

“Evening meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Comfortable room. Pleasant and efficient service. Menu is on the chalk board and though limited and apparently unchanging, the food is delicious. Our half bottle of Bordeau red was the best on the trip.
