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 charcuterie selections or the indulgent duck and foie gras burgers are legendary favourites on the Comptoir Gascon menu. Other regional French creations include whole BBQ'd duck magret, duck & foie gras burgers and traditional cassoulet Toulousain. Choice French cuts including cote de boeuf, faux filet, lomo and andouillette are displayed on blackboards priced by the gram and cooked to order over a charcoal grill.

On London's Charterhouse Street, Comptoir Gascon London epitomises regional French bistro-style cuisine. Farringdon Tube Station is just a 4-minute walk away.

    Very attentive service. Piggy treats to share to start with were as ever good and good value. Duck confit was usual good fare, but my foie gras and truffle burger was absolutely superb - not sure why I had not had it before! Good solid SW French food.

    Elaborate "potato cake" was raw potato in the middle. It was replaced by another - also raw. The dish wasn't billed, but still meant that the meal was a very poor experience. Beans in the cassoulet were only just cooked and not really enjoyable. A shame as I've eaten well here before. New staff?

    Fantastic food and service

  • ((((( 30 May 2016 by Richard from Ilford

    The staff had no problems with us appearing 25 minutes before the booking time. Fantastic meal starting with mushroom soup followed by vegetable ravioli with a side of chicory and roquefort and rounded off with an oozing chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream. Attentive and knowlegable service is the icing on the cake here. The waiter had paid attention to our dietary requests. We did not have any alcohol but the coffee was good.

    This is an intimate venue for a quiet and relaxed meal.

    nice food, pretty friendly services.
    it's relatively a small bistro so I would recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

    Overall pretty pleased. Atmosphere and service were good. I had belly pork and the dish was disappointing - too much gristle in the meat and top not crispy - would not recommend this dish
