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.

    Tentatively waited on, wonderfully patient and friendly staff. also, a big plus is that they were knowledgeable about their food! We had many questions! Cuttlefish starter was tough and chewier than I'd expect. A thin sliver as opposed to a cube of succulent fish. Apart from that, 2 other superb courses. Would be happy to recommend.

    Lovely restaurant with courteous and attentive staff. The Bookatable deal was good value but even the a la carte menu seemed reasonable. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. I went with two friends and we enjoyed sitting in the booths in the centre. It was all very relaxed and we did not feel rushed. The Cigalon is definitely a good choice for dining in and around Chancery Lane.

    Peaceful. Pleasant ambience. Delightful staff. Excellent meal. Interesting wine list but few choices at the lower end and the upper end a touch pricey.

    Visited Cigalon on a Monday night at 7:30pm for an Anniversary dinner with my girlfriend. Arriving at the empty front desk we were quickly and warmly greeted by the staff and shown to our cosy booth. There were 4 other couples dining so the service of the waiting staff was very good. We chose the fixed 3 course menu starter of Cuttlefish ( nice , but too many chickpeas ) and Asparagus with fruit salsa ( cold dish , slightly sweet ) , we both had the Lamb main ( tender well cooked , but too many beans) , we were recommended the greens as a side dish and that was a nice accompaniment to the lamb. For desert we had the Lemon panna cotta and the Chocolate grenache with basil ( both were very good). The wine/drinks list featured many Corsican wines , Pastis and regional french drinks. We just opt'ed of a carafe of the Cote de Cigales Rose ( light and subtle fruitiness) which is hard to resist on a warm summer evening. Will be returning to try the Petangue in Baranis downstairs.
