Afternoon Coffee
Aubaine is a passionate marriage of French culinary creativity and the discerning standards of the London dining scene. We live to make the simple sophisticated and the sophisticated simple.

Our menu is a taste of modern France with a nod to the traditional. We blaze a trail to original and exciting creations while keeping the much-loved staples of French dining philosophy close to our heart. Namely, the best ingredients, the most delicious wine and thoughtful service.

Paying the V&A a visit? On your way up Brompton Road, drop into our local venue – it's something of a Kensington landmark. Our flagship restaurant is a popular brunch spot and even more popular for Champagne dinners (although our brunches often feature fizz as well).

I came here with my family and we had a lovely lunch.
My dad had the truffle pasta dish and he said it was very nice. The staff are always very lovely and make us feel very welcome.
And my baby loves this place and their food too.

All good from start to finish. They reserved a nice table for me as requested as it was my friend’s birthday. The two course Harvest menu was very good value and very nicely cooked an presented. The portions were generous, not something you would expect from a set menu. Staff were attentive and gave us complimentary macarons for my friend’s birthday. My friend was impressed with this place and so was I. We will return. Thank you!

Arrived and they told me problems with kitchen so no food. I had booked for a business breakfast with three clients. They knew of the issue the previous evening - why didn't they contact their bookings to let them know?! Unacceptable.

Interesting choice of late breakfast options and, as it was after midday, we decided to have a cheeky cocktail to start. Drinks didn't arrive until just after food though so that was disappointing and it was hard to get attention of staff when we wanted the bill. Food was good, timings and service could be improved.

Very average restaurant. The service was ok not very welcoming, maybe because they were very busy but I felt maybe I shouldn’t be eating here today. The food extremely average. I had the black truffle pasta dish and left quite a bit on the plate. The wine choices were ok. So all n all if hungry and need a pit stop the go but don’t expect too much.

Although we chose the set Summer menu offer at time of booking, we were only offered a la carte menus, so I had to ask for the lunch set menu. After ordering it took far too long for us to be served our food. There was no additional courtesies, that I would expect in a French bistro, like bread on the table.

The food itself was delicious when it came, after having to ask the waiting staff, why it was taking so long to serve us at lunchtime from a set menu.

No one came to check that we were enjoying our food. We had two courses and a bottle of sparkling water for 2 people but they still managed to get our bill wrong. I don’t know if they were short staffed in the kitchen and/or dining room but the service was well below expectation. I won’t return.

the waiter got one order wrong, when we sent back to be replaced it took 25 minutes at which point everybody else was ready for dessert. One dessert arrived after we had asked for the bill (when we had assumed it wasn't arriving). All focus was on a large gathering at a table beside us - worst service I have experienced in a long time

Service quite slow. Salads v nice. Scallops lovely. Sadly I ordered chicken croquettes thinking they would be something interesting or creamy-filled. They were basically fried, breadcrumb-coated nuggets with a spicy mayo dip. I wouldn’t have ordered that if the description would have stated that so felt it was a waste. They put a candle in the dessert for my friend’s birthday which was a nice touch. Pistachio cake very nice. Would go again and make better choices.

Was lovely, had to request the spring menu as they weren’t showing it, the duck salad starter could have had more of the parfait- (would have been even nicer if it was actual pieces of duck) the cod main was lovely, coffee ice cream needs to be smoother but otherwise tasted delish! Perfect for a lovely lunch with a few drinks and some people watching. Staff were lovely and attentive but didn’t make us feel rushed.

What a lovely restaurant! We went on a gloriously sunny day so they opened up the glass fronting for a more al fresco feel. The food is fantastic and I especially appreciated the dessert menu - one of the waiters brings all the options on a slate and talks each one through with you - a lovely touch.

This was a great location for watching the world go by. We had a table window and as the weather allowed it was open, we were not rushed despite it being fairly busy.

We had visited the V and A Dior exhibition and had booked the Aubaine for an early evening meal. It was very near to the museum and we had a lovely leisurely early dinner. The waiters were very courteous and informed about the menu.

Extremely slow service - the waiting staff were far more concerned with chatting with each other then attending to their customers, we had to ask if our food was coming more than once. Very difficult to have any kind of conservation as it was so noisy. Food not particularly special considering the price. The soup of the day - cauliflower and Stilton was revolting - practically had to cut it with a knife and fork and the only bits of Stilton was thrown in just before serving. Asked for a large bottle of sparkling water - it arrived warm so had to ask for a glass of ice - surely chilled water is not too much to ask! A very disappointing lunch!
