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 liked this brasserie a lot, and used it all the time. The last couple of times we went, it was very disappointing, the service was very poor, the waiter address us in a too friendly a manner, the food was average and late.
not to mention the toilets, are a shame

I visit Aubaine reasonably regularly, generally with a very fussy friend. They cope with her demands happily, and the food is usually reliable. They always have good salads and fish, and their desserts look great (though I have never eaten any).

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. We didn’t feel rushed at all and we would definitely recommend the restaurant for anyone who is visiting any of the South Kensington museums and wants an early meal after a tiring day.

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!

Been recommended by OpenTable as one of the best brunch spots in London. Excuse me??
I had a very very disappointing avocado toast with feta...
However, the pain au chocolat was excellent and so was the bread slices with marmelade. Macha latte was really good as well and they have soya and almond milk as alternative for the milk.

Worst experience ever
The manager Chris was very rude and greedy, and the waiter Pip at the end was saying “ why did you come here??”
They applied a minimum charge on us (3 person)
Which I accepted that we can order anything as long as we will pay the minimum charge.
When I asked for the bill they added the minimum charge as a cover charge plus to what we have order!!!
They did not say the cover charge will be added to your order they said “ minimum charge”.
I was really shocked of their attitude I used to go there and a different manager Burrat was very classy and gentle unlike the staff I met yesterday.

Took 55 minutes to get our breakfast. The toast was soggy when it arrived, and the full breakfast was below average. I haven't been here for a year or so, and last time I came the standard of food was well above average. Maybe something has changed in the last year but I won't be going back. All in all one of the worst breakfasts I have had.
