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 traditional cassoulet Toulousain, whole grilled sea bass, pan-fried cod and daily changing specials. Fantastic meat cuts including Chateaubriand for 2 and ribeye steak are cooked over the charcoal grill, whilst original lamb, fish, duck or beef burgers are offered at lunch.

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

    As usual the food was very good as was the service. Our only regret is that the battered squid has not appeared on the menu for some time now.

    Great ambience. Attentive service, cassoulet (portions could be bigger?).

    Wine delicious (Gascogne red) moderately pricing.

  • (((** 23 August 2018 by Graham from London

    We've had several good meals here, but this wasn't one. The special Gascon dinner started well, with a tiny bowl of green soup and some lovely sardines. But the pork had been cooked in a water bath so was soft and mushy and it had been either sprayed with something or put in a suffocating smoker - all we could taste was smoke and ashes so we sent it back. The nice waiter took it off the bill, but we continued to taste it for ages after. Have they changed I wonder?

  • (((** 9 August 2018 by Sophie from London

    Generally good however service was quite slow despite there not being very many diners. The rosé and white wine were at room temperature - ice cubes were provided however this dilutes and changes the taste of the wine so would it not be simpler to chill properly in the first place. We had to ask what the Plat du Jour was instead of being advised on arrival.

    The dinner was very good and the atmosphere pleasant, on the simple side, without undue paraphinelia. The wine recommendation was excellent, and so was the main dish (beef fillet). The best feature: not noisy, could easily have a conversation.

    I really enjoy going to Comptoir Gascon - the food is lovely, the service is good and the restaurant itself has an air of relaxation about it (even when it's busy).
