Having held its Michelin star since 2002, Club Gascon serves dishes inspired by the cuisine of south west France. The revered Evening Standard restaurant critic, Fay Maschler, champions Club Gascon as ‘an absolute gift’.

With a commitment to the highest standards of freshness and authenticity, the Club Gascon menu journeys through complex and ground-breaking flavour combinations. Hailing from Toulouse, Head Chef Pascal Aussignac was named Restaurant Chef of the Year 2013 at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

Encouraging a serendipitous approach to dining, Club Gascon restaurant presents a selection of small dishes, allowing diners to sample an array of flavours. Favourite dishes include sea urchins delicacy, cauliflower & crisps, or crackled capon wings, scallop ballotine, nuts & lovage. Wines are sourced from the finest regions of south west France, and the cellar at Club Gascon near the Barbican compiles over 400 bottles.

Perched next to the produce-haven of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon restaurant in London is housed in the conversion of a former Lyons tea house. Barbican, Farringdon & St Paul’s Stations are all within a 5-minute walk.

    the perfect service,but the food's taste can be more better

    Overall it was a disappointing dining experience and hard to believe it has a michelin star. The food just wasn't very nice and the service was very slow. We did have the set menu 3 course for £35 and the a la carte may have been a much better option.

    Lovely interior, staff were wonderful and the food was interesting and the flavours were well composed together. The options on the set menu were not quite to our taste but interesting to try. Would definitely look to come back and eat from the a la carte menu.

    Good value, but would've liked to see Club Gascon's culinary skills through the restaurant week menu, rather than just giving lots of food and courses. The snail appetiser was quite disappointing, snails tasted of absolutely nothing. The sea bream main was wonderful (although fish was slightly overcooked). Pain perdu wasn't great, too much camembert made it heavy and overpowering, and there was basically nothign else on the plate.

    Bread was also cold.

    In summary, for the price it was an excellent meal and thoroughly enjoyed, but the food that was presented wouldn't convince me to go back and try their tasting menu at the full price.

    Was excellent. Loved the whole experience. First time I have had fois gras matched with Rose and it just worked beautifully. A relaxed atmosphere, this could work for a romantic evening as well as a business lunch. I was celebrating a friend's birthday and it certainly worked for that too!
