The seasonally-changing range of dishes includes crunchy Bayonnais, BBQ'd pork ribs Basque style, duck carpaccio & oceanic watercress, glazed scallop & aromatic apple, and garden pea soft egg.

    Nice wine bar for French rustic tapas and reasonable decent wine. Foie gras was amazing and we had the piggy treats charcuterie to share. Free canape at the start, nice touch and good service.

    Friendly bar with lovely food (French tapas (sic!)).

    Very good value for money with the London love food festival. Impeccable food with subtle notes from Gascony (foie gras, Armagnac and smoky flavours). Service was good although we felt they were slightly dry (probably because we were dining on an offer). Will try to go again soon.

    Dinner at 8pm. Unlike anywhere else, Pascal innovated remarkable combinations and great looking food plates before the Fat Duck even opened. The guinea fowl was the best I have ever tasted. We went as part of the London Food festival and had the value dinner which was lovely. I have been coming here for over 15 years and have never had a bad experience.

    We dined at Gascon lub during the London Restaurant Festival, in order to try something different from our usual venues.I was quite tired and thought of cancelling but I didn't and I was quite glad we finally went there for dinner as it was a fantastic experiece. We tried 2 courses for [$] (part of the Festival)and everything was awesome and perfectly presented.The service was very attentive and correct without being at your table ever minute and the restaurant is really nice and and quiet with a very relaxing atmosphere.Good choice!
