Dining in a Secret Garden in the heart of London…

Enjoy lunch or dinner in Aurora’s Secret Garden

If there is one thing that London is not short of it is restaurants. The city is blessed with a massive selection each varying in style, cuisine, price point, location and uniqueness (want to eat in pitch black? Go to Dans le Noir?!), there are also a growing number of restaurants catering for diners who want to eat al fresco, and whilst we may not have the Mediterranean climate we can have some lovely sunny days and warm balmy evenings during the summer months when eating outside beckons, although it beckons half of London so outdoor spots can get very busy and it can be difficult to get a table. That is why I love Aurora, located in the heart of Soho, the garden of this charming restaurant is tucked away  from view and the cosy ivy-filled courtyard has just a few tables so it makes for an intimate and unique dining experience. Aurora even have a private dining table hidden away cabana-style behind a curtain for extra privacy! The service is relaxed and the food is fresh, TravelBella enjoyed the most delicious swordfish steak and went on to indulge in banoffi pie and chocolate brownie (shared with friends of course!), when you are in this type of environment it is easy not to have a care in the world and indulge until your heart, and stomach, is content!
