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.

    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.

    This was our first visit to Club Gascon since its refurbishment last year. They've done a good job of brightening and extending the dining area, it's a very agreeable ambiance. The food remains top-notch (we took the four-course Star Deal which included a glass of the excellent Lallier champagne). It's a creative style of cooking with some novel touches (ants on your amuse-bouche, anyone?). We thought a couple of the dishes didn't quite work but they were all very interesting and very well executed. Professional service, a good wine list, a very pleasant dining room, and not too much noise (a major problem with many London restaurants nowadays).

    We went to Club Gascon for an anniversary dinner and were really impressed. It was excellent value on the bookatable deal. They were exceptionally flexible when it came to dealing with my pregnancy and my partner's vegetarianism, basically allowing us to chose any 5 courses that would meet our dietary requirements, and the food was beautiful as well as delicious. The garden primavera that my partner ate was exceptional in its beauty and creativity and i loved the snails and lettuce that came with my skate. The use of vegetables across both the menus and flowers in the vegetarian menu was delightful. The amuse bouche, petit fours, champagne and excellent bread and butter made it extremely celebratory as well as delicious.
