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.

    The service needs to be more attentive, wine pairing should be served before the dish. The snail dish needs to be redesigned, it does not balance well

    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.
