Customer reviews for Comptoir Gascon
((((* 30 April 2016 by Alan Reynolds from London Smithfields
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.
