The food was excellent. The service was attentive but slow. The room was very cold because the door was kept open.
I will definitively go back.

The food was tasty. The ambience seemed less warm than previously, probably because it was about 80% full. The Wagyu beef burger was lovely, however the menu seems reduced and I wasn't tempted by any of the starters on offer. We had 2 desserts between 4 of us (carrot and dark chocolate), and they were OK, but we weren't fighting over them.

Maybe should have the set menu available to see properly.
Also salmon starter had some parts that were not that edible!
Lovely ambience and lovely staff. Would go again and maybe have a different starter.

I arrived from France 14 days before I went to Aubaine, which is a French restaurant. I invited 4 of my friends to this reataurant hoping they’d have a little taste of the highlight of my trip to France, which is French food. The breakfast we had was No Where close to the ones I had in France. My friends weren’t impressed at all. And... I had to return what I ordered because there was a piece of human hair on it.

The lovely lady who was serving us that morning was very kind though.

First post-lockdown restaurant experience! Great to be in an almost-normal environment, with the gentle background buzz of people enjoying themselves. The food - sea bass on a bed of vegetables - was very good, light and delicious. And it was cooked by someone else! Very welcoming, friendly service.

It's early post-lockdown days, supporting our bars and restaurants is so important - we all want them to still be there when the new "normal" arrives, right? But there's an understandable trepidation and that's where Aubaine Brompton Cross have done brilliantly - they are warm, inviting and considerate hosts who couldn't have done more to ensure the eating out experience was still enjoyable. The limited menu had lots of tasty dishes on offer, the specials board was extensive and the Wagyu burger that I eventually decided on was simple, tasty and well presented. Thank you guys, I'll be back for more.

Terrible, visited London for the weekend, booked a table for 3:30 for brunch. Turned up and they did not offer the option for brunch or all day breakfast only a la carte. Waitress could not speak or understand English properly. Walked out. Will not be coming back again.

The food just wasn’t very good, especially for the cost. Porridge was cold and was sent back, but either way it was cheap quality. Avocado toast was uninspiring and cold.

I came for brunch yesterday with work colleagues and clients and left feeling quite short-changed by the cost of the meal compared to what we actually received. My guests were generally content with the quality of their food but tbh the portion sizes were poor considering the cost of individual plates (between £10-£15). I ordered the Katsu Breakfast and to say it was a light snack would be an absolute understatement. I came away feeling hungry and would certainly look elsewhere the next time I book for brunch.

Aubaine is good for a relaxed atmosphere for dinner with friends without the need to dress up or be strictly formal. Good choices of food on the menu, we had sharing plates and regular courses all mixed in. Our waiter was very helpful regarding portion sizes and describing the food. I had the sharing plate of camembert all to myself as a main course. We weren't hurried along, it was a nice evening.

Stunning breakfast to kick off our Wedding Anniversary. I had the French breakfast and my wife had the eggs benedict. All served with some very tasty coffee.

As we were finishing the tray of pastries came out the oven and we simply could not resist - a perfect start to our day.
