Lovely restaurant. Our meal was a deal I had found on Bookatable Michelin. Very good value for money and the food was excellent.

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.

    The tasting menu I booked was not available which was a tad awkward as this did not become apparent until seated. The menu I had was hit and miss with some dishes being inedible and some fine. Perhaps it was my unsophisticated palette however, had I known the menu in advance I would not have dined here. It was very stiff and formal however the staff were polite and knowledgeable. Drinks were extortionate however that's to be expected. Its in a lovely area which I would go back to.

    When looking for a fine dining experience, I was pleasantly surprised when Club Gascon , with a Michelin star popped up with a " champagne and four course" option, for £49. A deal not to miss. We arrived early and went next door to their own cocktail bar and had a drink before going in and been shown to our table ( that had to happen as there is nowhere to wait without blocking the door). The service was good, wine prices reasonable, and things got off to a good start with canapes and amouse Bouche. Starter was excellent, and then a long long wait for the fish course ( others who came in later were on dessert before our second course arrived. ). The waitress apologised and said there had been a problem with my fish, but ... Really? Then three courses arrived bang, bang bang.

    The details provided say the table would be needed back by 9pm, and with the rapid 2/3/4th courses, surely was. However, the food was excellent, so not actually complaining, but did feel rushed at the end after a long wait.

    All in all, excellent food, good price, nice wine list, with just the one hiccup in service.

    Would I go back/recommend. Definitely !!

    What a very special, totally delicious and artistically beautiful menu which excited our taste buds and was delivered with impeccable service. It was my partners birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate. Thank you

    Fantastic meal, great service and attention to detail.
    We ate the four course meal with champagne, which, of course, actually ended up as eight courses.
    All good was served in artistic and creative ways - of particular note the canapés.
    Super flavours and helpful staff with just the right level of attentiveness.
    Great atmosphere and almost full even on a Monday evening in November.
    Make sure you have the monkfish as your fish course!

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal. We were on the Star Deal offer of "4 courses, champagne and more" and it was a bargain considering the high quality of all the dishes. As we were expecting just 4 courses it was a pleasant surprise to receive 9! Portions are quite small but we left feeling satisfied. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed and not at all pretentious which can be off-putting in some restaurants. Here the staff are happy to smile and be pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning again.
