I havw been there for the aperitivo formula, I have to say the idea is really good however the drinks could be with less ice, simply because a Negroni with too much ice is not a Negroni!

Great find for a Saturday in Notting Hill. Great kitchen, but out of the main special. Service is a little laid back, but we are from NY so take that with a grain. We all had a nice meal and the wine was also nicely selected.

One weird thing is that its clearly part of the hotel so its weird to go to the toilet because its a been of a trek through the hotel stairs etc.

No other issues other than that:)

My husband and I stayed at the Hyde Park Hilton next door, which the rest was connected to. We went the for breakfast because it was conveniently close, but were pleased surprised. Not only was the decor adorable, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food and lattes were excellent. I had the French toast with marscapone and fresh fruit and my husband enjoyed the eggs royals. We will definitely return next time we visit London. Cheers!

Very mediocre food. Was really disappointed as I had high hopes of a good meal. It was dull and very uninspired. I also object to paying service charge on alcohol when the mark up is extortionate in the first place. Would not go back here again.

Our attendant, Marina, was very friendly and pleasant. We were disappointed though to learn that they don't offer proper afternoon tea, which was what we really wanted. My friend had a carolina that was simply exquisite but I wasn't so lucky in my order of a pistachio and raspberry cake, which was too dense and dry for my taste.

the food was cold. the floor was very dirty there was food on the floor, dust, leaves etc... (we sat near the window). I made the mistake of leaving my handbag on the floor and then putting it on my lap....
The food did not come all at once so some people had their plates and others did not. All food thought came cold which was disappointing. Also, the service was slow.

There was no food left at the time of our reservation on Christmas Day. The staff was arrogant but still made us a discount since there was only one choice left on the menu for main and starters... we were also supposed to have a cheese platter included but there were no cheeses left, same for the desserts. Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t go back.

Our Christmas dinner was very poor. Our mood was very up the moment we arrived, soon to decline. We had missing dishes all through the night, we had to order again and again and again and was actually able to receive first piece of water or dish at 19.30 (we arrived at 18.20). It was a simple set menu which we had 3 choices for starter 3 for mains 3 deserts, and we ended up not eating our choices since they were already finished. Waiters were apologising every now and then, saying this was not their usual part of job, saying sorry food is finished but adding they cannot forecast the future so we had to accept that we may not find what we want in the menu. In the end after everything being so late, we did not receive 4 cheese dishes, choose not to have the deserts (since 3 different choices we asked for all finished) choose not to have any coffee, and our mood was down. So after seeing how unhappy 7people in our group was, when asked what can be done to lighten the mood the only thing I could say was that I wanted to have the bill to go home. I wish we never left home to come to this place. The chief said he definitely would be frustrated himself, provided 30% discount so we had to pay £50 per person. Their intentions were good but everything else negative.

When we booked it was because of no set menu at Christmas and when we went there was set menu only with little choice for vegetarians- it’s a great Restaurant any day apart from 25th Dec.
Bellini was wet, sitting for ages with the Salmon on it, the Turkey was dry, four course meal no cheese was offered. The deserts were 10/10, fantastic service very kind staff. We live near by it’s a great place to eat.

Pur essendo un Pranzo di Natale noi non ce ne siamo accorti. Sembrava più un menu fisso a 65 sterline a persona che alla fine sono diventate 78 per acqua e servizio. Abbiamo dovuto man mano sollecitare quello non arrivava previsto mel menù. Non c'è alcun paragone con un vero Pranzo di Natale che in Italia, visto quello che abbiamo mangiato, sarebbe costato molto meno.

Made last-minute reservations here while on vacation with my wife and 1-year-old son. Most restaurants in the area cringed when we walked in with a small child, but the staff at Aubaine couldn't have made us feel more welcome and happy to have our business. Our little guy made best friends with our exceptional waiter, who took time to play peek a boo, play with cars, and even snuck a macaroon from the bakery for him to try. He also chowed down on the very well-made childrens menu dinner entree.

Food, drinks, and wine were delicious but the evening was made special for us by the extra efforts of the great waitstaff. Would recommend to everybody, with children in tow or not.

The ambience and decor is very nice and sofisticated. The food was good but the portion could have been slighly bigger (we had the avo on toast with poached eggs). The carrot cake was great, I also liked the fact that they bring you over a tray where you can choose your cake from.
