Aubaine Selfridges
This image is not of the venue. Awaiting image from venue.
It's good to know that after a hard day's shopping you don't have to go far for lunch. In fact you'll find in-house restaurant Aubaine right beside Selfridges' shoe department - you have been warned. Part of the successful mini-chain, Aubaine continues to serve up traditional French cuisine using quality fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The second time I visited Aubaine was just in this past week but this time, just for an afternoon coffee and pastry. This same friend and I were on Oxford Street doing some Black Friday damage when we decided to take a break to rest! We came around to Selfridges and I suggested coming to the branch here because I’d seen many beautiful pictures on Instagram of their interior decor here.


The interior design definitely lived up to the pictures because it was stunning! The ceiling of the restaurant was lined with purple and lilac flowers so that they hung over your head, as if you were eating in an outdoor garden. The added natural light from the large windows really adds to the experience of feeling like you’re dining outdoors, which is great especially when it’s Winter and you don’t really want to be outdoors. It gives you a similar atmosphere and really ups the sophistication of the place.


In terms of our orders, I went for an Americano since my friend and I were sharing an Almond Croissant, which I normally already find quite sweet. This paired well with my Americano, which wasn’t acidic and really quite to my liking! I enjoyed the almond croissant too because it was too sweet, contrary to many other bakeries. It was filled generously with the almond paste filling and sported the same crisp and golden exterior as their normal croissants. The inside was still soft and fluffy and you could really see the layers from the puff pastry!


Overall, such a lovely experience coming in here. If you're looking for somewhere with ambiance and class, this is a good shout if you're in the area and a great place to take a break from all that shopping on Oxford Street!

I cannot think of anything more wonderful that looking at shoes and then after the stress of having to choose a single pair from the Selfridges shoe department, finding a gem of a restaurant to recover in. Well, I found this exact place, Aubaine, tucked away just before Jimmy Choo on the 2nd floor. The restaurant looked like a perfect oasis of calm and peacefulness with beautiful vases of flowers and great looking tables to entice me in. 

I was delighted by the range of food options, including a set menu, which seemed great value for money as well as some specials and a great choice for vegetarians-yes you read that correctly! Wow, a French restaurant with a good vegetarian choice, fabulous. I had deep fried ravioli, which as the very nice manager told me "shouldn't work but it does". He was right, of course. My hubby had seabass and raved about this equally. 

The service was extremely attentive and seemed genuine, something I find missing from lots of restaurants these days. The manager was very helpful and keen to ensure my swift recovery from shoe shopping! 

I am so pleased to have found this restaurant and cannot encourage you to go there enough. If you are in the shoe department in Selfridges or if you need somewhere for lunch whilst someone else needs the shoe department it is perfect. Oh and I guess you can even go without buying shoes-oops, I didn't think of that ; )
