AuroraThis corner of Soho has more than its fair share of restaurants we repeatedly return to. Opposite Andrew Edmunds and a few doors down from Mildred's, Aurora is another great little find. In summer, the courtyard garden out the back is a pretty and romantic spot. It may feel like a place for 'those in the know' but plenty of people know about this so it's no surprise that it's popular too - booking is advised. The food is consistently good. Choose from a monthly changing menu which always includes main course options of meat, fish and a veggie dish. Generous portions, reasonably priced food and an intimate, relaxed atmosphere mean you'll be more than satisfied and leave resolving to return.
