Always love the duck burgers
29 January 2016
Holding a Michelin Bib Gourmand, Comptoir Gascon offers the finest French bistro creations, strongly influenced by bold flavours from south west France. The Comptoir Gascon deli is a rustic food hall with specialist French produce, including fine preserves, fresh bread and foie gras.
A gourmet food lover’s delight in the Smithfield area, Comptoir Gascon Farringdon is a relaxed and cosy dining retreat, named a ‘wonderful French bistro’ by Fay Maschler. The refined wine cellar hosts a range of classy French bottles, while specials on the blackboard display an array of seasonal French gems.
Award-winning duck fat French fries, the famous piggy treats or the indulgent duck burger are legendary favourites on the Comptoir Gascon menu. Other regional French creations include lemon crusted cod with capers and aubergine caviar or rustic cassoulet Toulousain.
On London's Charterhouse Street, Comptoir Gascon London epitomises regional French bistro-style cuisine. Farringdon Tube Station is just a 4-minute walk away.

Food was quite good. The deluxe burger (duck pate topped with foie gras) was juicy and delicious, with a nice brioche bun. Fries were crispy and well seasoned, as was the mixed green veg side dish. Cheese board was a little lacklustre.
Waiters were friendly and reasonably attentive, but lacked knowledge of the menu and wine list. I'd return if I was in the area.

Food was delicious, duck burger with crispy chips, then dark chocolate tart with praline ice cream. You feel at home in a comfy place.

Recommended by a friend who lives nearby, this warm & comfortable restaurant provided a delightful lunchtime respite from downtown workday hustle. Reservations a must, judging by how quickly the place filled after noontime opening, & the delicious food & friendly service explained why. Foie gras terrine was delicious (you may wish to ask for a 2nd slice of toasted brioche), & the duck confit had wonderfully crispy skin, complemented by a bitter green salad. Although I'm not usually a cab sauv fan & normally would've opted for a pinot, the cab blend they were pouring by the glass worked well. The "Gascon mess" dessert (meringue, whipped cream & fruit compote) was a satisfying confection, with coffee. You'll venture back out into London drizzle well fortified.
