Aroma Mexican Restaurant


Recommend To Friends

837 Main Street
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

Chef José Castillo and owner Laura Matamoros showcase the flavours of their native country. Meals are made with love from scratch with each order, and the new menu is 100% gluten-free with many vegetarian and vegan options. Aroma is a slow food Mexican restaurant. “Good food takes time. We want our guests to relax and enjoy a traditional experience,” says Laura. If you‘re looking for real Mexico City dining style (not Tex-Mex or fast food), Aroma is the perfect place. Aroma also offers daily and weekly specials.

Atmosphere & Accolades

The décor at this colourful and fun 13-table restaurant (with additional Main Street patio seating) emulates the atmosphere around a Mexican family kitchen table, perfect for sharing meals, stories and margaritas. Aroma is a previous Where Magazine Best New Restaurant award winner.
