Soups are a good bet; perhaps
lobster bisque, properly thickened with shell, or sweetly
pungent onion soup with just the right amount of gooey
cheese. Garlicky escargots and frog's legs are further
options. For mains, perhaps consider tender rabbit
stew, its subtle flavours accentuated by mustard; or
pan-fried sea bass, which refuses to be swamped by
the accompanying tapenade and ratatouille. Classics
such as duck confit and coq au vin are also available,
along with several good steak options. For dessert,
crepes suzette, prepared tableside with great panache,
tastes and smells as good as it looks, butter and citrus
merging in a delicious caramely ooze. For those not so
fond of pyrotechnics, perfectly sour/sweet lemon tart
in fabulously crisp pastry is recommended.
Aubergine is based in a smart but welcoming
colonial-style house, with four separate dining areas.
This is the place to go for good, honest, slightly oldfashioned
French cooking, with few frills or gimmicks.
Service is crisp and helpful, although some might
consider it over-attentive.
