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.

    Every single dish was a real experience. Having booked one lunch, I booked another as I was so impressed. Small but very satisfying portions ( as it should be) of delicious textures and flavours. I felt that considerable care and expertise had gone into each dish. Low key relaxing, comfortable atmosphere with lovely unobtrusive professional service. With an inexpensive but delicious wine, on both occasions, lunch was under £100 each with the Michlin deal. I thought this an incredibly good deal. I look forward to revisiting Club Gascon.

    We had the four course Taste Of Autumn tasting menu with champagne and the suggested wine flight. Superb value for a birthday dinner and food was excellent. The service was perfect and although there was a slight delay for the fish course we were given an extra top up on the wine - nice touch!

    Came here for my birthday and was my first ever Michelin star meal. I had a great experience and the staff were all very lovely and happy to answer any questions. With each course they would explain what the dish was and even the best order to eat it in. My favourite dish was definitely the peach souffle. They also presented me with a birthday card from the chef and some small sweet items at the end of the meal with a candle. The cocktails in the bar next door were tasty but could have been made to look a bit prettier

    Excellent service and food was exquisite. The waiter was very experienced and gave us all very detailed explanation of,each course suggesting alternatives for one member of our party who had some special dietary needs. A fantastic venue for any special occasion.

    Had the four course taster menu. Excellent value for money. The courgette flower dish was beautiful. Made to feel very welcome. Great service.
