Restaurant description

Having held its Michelin star since 2002, Club Gascon serves dishes inspired by the cuisine of south west France. The revered Evening Standard restaurant critic, Fay Maschler, champions Club Gascon as ‘an absolute gift’.

With a commitment to the highest standards of freshness and authenticity, the Club Gascon menu journeys through complex and ground-breaking flavour combinations. Hailing from Toulouse, Head Chef Pascal Aussignac was named Restaurant Chef of the Year 2013 at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

Encouraging a serendipitous approach to dining, Club Gascon restaurant presents a selection of small dishes, allowing diners to sample an array of flavours. Favourite dishes include sea urchins delicacy, cauliflower & crisps, or crackled capon wings, scallop ballotine, nuts & lovage. Wines are sourced from the finest regions of south west France, and the cellar at Club Gascon near the Barbican compiles over 400 bottles.

Perched next to the produce-haven of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon restaurant in London is housed in the conversion of a former Lyons tea house. Barbican, Farringdon & St Paul’s Stations are all within a 5-minute walk.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Delicious and innovative food. The service was fantastic (we've dined at other 1-star michelin restaurants where service was poor), and the food was delicious. The duck foie gras melts in your mouth and the addition of pistachio was fantastic! We felt thoroughly spoilt as we celebrated our anniversary here. We will definitely come back again!

    I cannot fault them on any part, from the moment we walked through the door the service was amazing, lovely food. Highly recommended.

    Booked a tasting menu deal for my husband’s birthday and were treated so warmly (they even had a lovely handwritten card waiting on the table). The atmosphere was cozy yet elegant, and the service exceeded our expectations. As a vegetarian, I was pleasantly surprised by how inventive the veg dishes were. One of the best restaurants in London and we can’t wait to return.

    Amazing experience, that I would recommend to everyone. Staff was very kind, and the atmosphere was good as well. We loved the duck egg in the nest and the sea bream tartare. Each course was a piece of art, they looked amazing and tasted even better

    A lovely little restaurant serving very good food. We had the tasting menu - which included some really interesting dishes, with so many different flavours and textures. All the dishes looked absolutely beautiful too. Also an excellent sommelier, and I would recommend the wine pairings for the tasting menu. Definitely an experience worth having.

    The service was excellent. I’m pregnant and they handled any necessary changes or amendments to the menu to suit my dietary needs with sensitivity, and all of the substitutions were fantastic. My husband and I felt really well taken care of throughout the meal by all the staff and particularly the Maitre ‘D. The food was fantastic, well executed, creative and delicious. Will definitely be returning.
