Set in a magnificent former auction house, Cigalon brings the fine cuisine of Provence to London. A lively open kitchen offers a flourish of entertainment in Cigalon's effortlessly elegant setting.

Showcasing a classy selection of French recipes, the Cigalon menu sees adventurous flavours served alongside simple yet succulent grill options. Favourites at Cigalon Chancery Lane include roasted suckling pig belly with caramelised peach and butternut squash, or a sublimely fresh market fish of the day served straight from the grill.

For more informal dining, the Baranis bar offers a laidback vibe, where guests can enjoy a bespoke cocktail and Mediterranean-style bar snacks. Plush, cocoon-style booth seating, subdued lighting and exposed brickwork makes Baranis a luxurious yet intimate setting.

From the team behind Michelin-starred Club Gascon, Cigalon and Baranis is also home to the UK's only indoor petanque court. Chancery Lane Tube Station is 7 minutes’ walk away.

    The wine dinner evening at Cigalon is excellent value for dinner in central London. In effect it is a four course Michelin standard dinner with a wine flight. Last night was a fennel starter flavoured with liquorice which went very nicely with the Corsican white wine. The carpaccio, then suckling pig with Rose and Red were beautifully cooked and presented, the dessert wine was sublime and the dessert was tasty if a bit difficult to eat with dignity (the snap basket was quite hard to break). My son, however, cooked himself another meal when he got home, he is a bit of a foody but clearly the portions, despite four courses, can leave high energy burners wanting more. All in all a great evening and very nice staff.

    Great find! Immaculate service, lovely small venue but full of light. Very well presented and delicious food. And the Corsican wine was unexpectedly pleasant. I would definitely return and certainly recommend.

    The restaurant is in a lovely airy space (unusual for this part of town) which used to be Sotheby's auction room before they moved to Bond Street. This is very appropriate for the light Southern French food which is always seasonal and usually has an interesting twist on what you might expect. They are not afraid of unusual ingredients which most chain restaurants eschew and the chefs invariably come up with good strong, but well balanced flavours. Last night was no exception: a delicious selection of fresh spring vegetables, including properly peeled young broad beans and globe artichoke bottoms served with a very pleasant suggestion of seaweed. a sort of veggie surf and turf. Crispy lamb belly with beans and wild garlic did exactly what it said on the tin and the "lemon cheesecake" was served in pretty yellow and cream swirls with further layers of crumbs. It tasted as good as it looked, and all for £20. Excellent value with a lovely cocktail included and a reasonably priced carafe of Provencal Rosé.

    This is the second time we have dined here. Its a superb little venue, impeccable service, lovely flavours, presentation and decor (elegant). Its intimate but bustling at the same time. I dine out a lot in London (there are many great restaurants to choose from) and Cigalon is a real gem. Totally recommend this, its an excellent restaurant.

    Gorgeous French food and very good service

  • (((** 7 April 2017 by Joyce Madle from Aylesbury Vale District

    Food was very good, presented very well and the set menu was value for money, staff were well presented and were very helpful. The restaurant itself looked a little tired, the walls could do with a good clean as they appeared grubby.

    Had the mullet carpaccio - heaven! Prettiest thing I've ever eaten.
    Lamb was lovely - a suggestion of a side of vegetables would have been welcomed.
    Super service.
