It was fantastic, the marinated sardines with potato salad was amazing, as was the house red - a superb bottle for the restaurant to put its name to.

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.

    The meal and the service were both fine. I have eaten several times at Le Comptoir before, and this was as good as on any previous occasion.

    Always friendly reception and efficient service. The piggy' treat' 1st course is an imaginative plate of porcine delight it is hard to pick anything else. The magret of duck was tender and delicious while the lamb fillet from the special board was melt in the mouth tender. As always everything is at least 50% more tasty than you expect it to be. Good wine selection starting at reasonable prices

    Still very good food with brilliant service. The ambience very relaxed. The one issue remains of a lack of vegetarian options.
