“Very good food but lacks in other aspects”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

The food is excellent but the service should be improved. Smoke is really a problem in this restaurant. I can only go there if it's almost empty to avoid smoking other's cigarettes.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Nice night life place, not great food. Body guards at the door for no reason.

“A vegetarian restaurant worth visiting regardless of diet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

Interesting place to visit if for nothing else to people watch. On a side street parallel to 26 July, you'll have to look for it but the soups, salads and vegetarian entrees are all well conceived and served.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

Pleasant atmosphere in the restaurant downstairs but as we were in a large group we were forced to eat upstairs in the bar. Food was good but portion sizes of most dishes not acceptable. Admittedly I was hungry but I finished my pasta in 4 mouthfuls. Not impressed

“Nice little place for a quick bite, especially if you're a vegetarian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

L'Aubergine does not offer outdoor space, and is not be the kind place you remember forever, but it's still a nice option for light dinner or lunch. The menu offers a wide range of tasty, vegetarian dishes. The location is very convenient and the service efficient.
