Holding a Michelin Bib Gourmand, Comptoir Gascon offers the finest French bistro creations, strongly influenced by bold flavours from south west France. The Comptoir Gascon deli is a rustic food hall with specialist French produce, including fine preserves, fresh bread and foie gras.

A gourmet food lover’s delight in the Smithfield area, Comptoir Gascon Farringdon is a relaxed and cosy dining retreat, named a ‘wonderful French bistro’ by Fay Maschler. The refined wine cellar hosts a range of classy French bottles, while specials on the blackboard display an array of seasonal French gems.

Award-winning duck fat French fries, the famous piggy treats charcuterie selections or the indulgent duck and foie gras burgers are legendary favourites on the Comptoir Gascon menu. Other regional French creations include whole BBQ'd duck magret, duck & foie gras burgers and traditional cassoulet Toulousain. Choice French cuts including cote de boeuf, faux filet, lomo and andouillette are displayed on blackboards priced by the gram and cooked to order over a charcoal grill.

On London's Charterhouse Street, Comptoir Gascon London epitomises regional French bistro-style cuisine. Farringdon Tube Station is just a 4-minute walk away.

    Very friendly. Food was good, but the party of 4 next to us got very noisy and there was no escape. It is very difficult to deal with this I understand but it didn't make us want to stay for a sweet. Is nearly £8.00 for 1 scallop + sauce expensive for a starter? Sea bass and vegetables were good, but we waited longer than we should have for them.

    The steak was absolutely medium rare as medium rare should be. The foie gras was delicious!
    Cheese platter loved it!
    We loved the experience so much we booked again for the next day!

    The whole sea bass was delicious, and I very much enjoyed "The Colonel" for dessert. Good service and very good value.

    Pleasant dining experience, but nothing exceptional. Prices were reasonable for the area and the standard offered.

    Starters: melon with Lillet, duck doughnut. Both delicious, if hard to describe.
    Main course: duck burger (strange but delicious) and beef short ribs with chips. This was slightly less good;
    the chips were very greasy and there was less meat and more gristle on the short ribs than one had a right to expect.
    Desserts: Spicy Pimms macaroon. Again, strange but delicious. (In fact they brought the wrong thing but the waiter replaced it
    at once, with a smile.)
    Drink: a glass of Escures (slightly closed) and three of Minervois (delicious). However, when I pointed out that the first glass of Minervois was corked the waitress tried to dispute the issue. "It has a special taste". Oh please. Why dispute the indisputable? It only spoils the occasion. And it appeared on the bill until I asked for it to be removed. Total cost for two of us: around GBP 90.00.

    Superb! Lovely ambiance, sublime food with a wonderful selection of specials offered. Excellent service - professional, knew their wine and menu in detail, and friendly without the fuss.
