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 ; )
