We needed a quick supper before getting the train from Waterloo. Auberge is down a side street just beyond Waterloo station close to the Waterloo East station - one can hear and feel the rumble of trains. There's a bar on the ground floor and the restaurant is on the first floor. We booked for early evening and the reservation had been noted by the staff. Decor is in the style of a French brasserie with red banquettes against the wall. Musak was standard; I wonder if they ever play French chanson? Clean loos (ground floor).
Service was swift and friendly (example of cosmopolitan London - we had a Hungarian waitress serving French food in England!) although if the restaurant had been busy I'm not sure how fast the service would have been. We shared olives and bread then from the express menu had steak frites and tartiflette - both appetising and freshly cooked albeit not gourmet standard. With a large glass of wine each and 12.5% service the bill was £46.
For central London it was good: swift service, decent food, affordable prices
P.S. Originally I tried to book at Carluccio's at Waterloo station but trying to book online the previous evening no reservations were possible - strange as when we walked past there were several tables available.
