Eating lunch chained to your desk is no sort of life for man or woman.
Throw off the shackles of the spreadsheet and make a break for freedom with today’s Big Deal on lunch at La Bonne Auberge on West Nile Street.
La Bonne Auberge opened back in 1975. Almost 40 years later, it is still going strong and, after a recent six figure revamp, it looks as elegant as ever.
Thriving under the stewardship of award-winning Executive Chef Gerry Sharkey, La Bonne Auberge offers tantalising menus inspired by France and the Mediterranean.
Available seven days a week from noon to 2pm, this deal is for one person to enjoy a delicious two course lunch from the prix fixe menu followed by tea or coffee at La Bonne Auberge.

Today’s Big Deal would be perfect for lunch with friends; as a treat for a family member or simply because you fancy lunching somewhere that’s considerably more exciting than munching a combo deal al desko.
