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.

    Based on the set menu only Not so great. Starters were bland and unseasoned. A few mistakes from the staff, Main and dessert were fine but nothing to write home about. Wouldn't personally go there again. But the place is nice.

    Lovely restaurant, very nice decor. Was a bit quiet when we arrived but got busy and there was a nice ambience. Very French menu but the staff are more than happy to chat you thru what's what. Food was lovely. Great value with the cocktail in the offer. Had a lovely dinner catching up with a friend we hadn't seen for ages. There was no rush to get the table back. Would set recommend.

    This is an excellent restaurant in a tastefully restored location. Much of the menu comprises of typical Provencale dishes which started with a Champagne and Rosemary liqueur cocktail. Starters were a real treat, lovely veloute with clams and an Artichoke and chopped Provencale sausage - a dream. Main course was a very acceptable Roasted coley but my partners Braised Ox Cheek was sublime - you may need to order side dishes to accompany and ours were expertly suggested buy the waiting staff. Desserts - we selected cheese (Provence cheese with black cherry jam) and a wonderful Pannacotta. This is a great addition to London restaurants and I shall return.

    Amazing staff and service and the food was on point. Had the ox cheek as my main and it just fell apart and melted in the mouth.
