Aubaine restaurant in Kensington High Street is a contemporary French restaurant that offers not only lovely Gallic food, but also beautiful French pastries and home-baked bread to take home to continue the experience. The pretty store-front restaurant is decorated with rustic Provençal country tables and chairs, stylish lighting, great armoires and authentic details. The ambience is intimate and relaxed, a perfect spot for breakfast on your own with the papers, lunch with friends, lingering supper, or a quick bite before or after Albert Hall performances. It is also the perfect spot to recharge your energy stores after some serious shopping. Aubaine’s menu is modern French, which is to say there are touches of the Italian side of the Mediterranean as well as simple, classic dishes from the repertoire and more inventive offerings. And the service is as authentically Parisian as you could ever hope to find in W8.
