Aubaine Wimbledon Restaurant Review

Aubaine is a great little place in Wimbledon if you wish to go and experience elegant simple, French cuisine.
Set in Wimbledon Village no less, Aubaine certainly doesn't look out of place against it's competitors.
The first impression of Aubaine has to be the decor.
With white wooden chairs and stainless steel tables in an open elegant setting, gives you the sense that this is something special.
The lighting in the room helps with the ambiance. It's one of those places where you can sit with a family, as well as someone you're out to impress.
My visit was conducted mid-week, so in this instance there was no need to book a table, however I probably would advise this for weekend occasions.
As a matter of service, this is totally without fault. No exaggeration, the waiter was chatty, friendly and very helpful with his menu suggestions.
I ordered the Jerusalem Artichoke and Truffle Soup, which was delightful, not too strong, matched with overtones of a warming olive oil.
For mains, it was the Feuilleté of Goat's Cheese, which was baked goats cheese on a crisp bed of pastry.
Overall, menu options were exquisite, with one minor criticism, and that's there wasn't enough vegetarian options, or a separate category.
Something that set Aubaine apart from other restaurants, would have to have been the wine selection.
We opted for the house red (usually a safe bet for somewhere new) and it was a well balanced fruity number, which made me wonder what the other top end wines would be like.
Overall, Aubaine is definitely a place to visit.
With Mother's Day on the way, it's something to bare in mind for a night out.
