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.

    Good value as they were running a 25% discount on food during April. Food style is a bit rustic. My fish soup was NOT soupe de Poissons to which I am accustomed in Southern France but ok. My confit de canard fell off the bone as it should but came with lot of fat (to be discarded). Service very friendly though a little slow early on.

    I have visited Comptoir Gascon many times before, and I return because it doesn't change. The friendly welcome, delicious food, excellent French wines and informal atmosphere always make for a good meal.

    We came as a couple to celebrate our anniversary. The place is cousy, staff welcoming and frendly.
    Duck was a main subject of the night so we ordered Magret de Canard and breath-taking Mousse. The meat was wonderful, juicy and tasty, melting sensation really. Only thing I'll complain about is presentation of this beautiful piece if meat we ordered with french fries. It was served in massive plane white plate, no additional souce, no salad on the side, no decoration or something that can improve the visual effect of this delicious Magret de Canard.
    One more thing to add, the wine glasses are too short, the glass to thick, white and red wine served in the whiteh wine glass.
    Please if you're offering french wine make sure to fulfill the sensation with proper set of wine glasses.
