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.

We went for a special Gascony dinner of four courses for £25, which was a bargain. The dishes were all delicious, but it was a little heavy on the meat. We had an entire roast guinea fowl to share between two, with a little pumpkin on the side. This followed a starter of a black pudding pie, which had lovely flaky pastry. Probably a quarter bird would have been enough, with more vegetables. The ambience and service were good. We had a glass of the cheapest red wine, which we both enjoyed.

Surprised that no condiments or bread offered.

From a very warm welcome to excellent food and service it's hard to fault Comptoir Gascon. A great deal with very well prepared and presented food and a very palatable house white. Would highly recommend and very likely to return.

Not so good as previously. Waitress said set menu advertised was not available and a dish on a la carte was also unavailable. Would give one more chance based on earlier meals.

Menu choice was good, food was well prepared and portions were appropriate, and all dishes sampled were very good. The wine list was small but adequate, and offered carafes as well as glasses. Service was excellent. The noise level was fairly high while the restaurant was full.

Good food and great value for money but the service was poor. We waited for very long time to be served and the whole evening was a bit slow.

The staff were wonderful and friendly, efficient. But...actually the food was very poor. The starter was rather sour and the pigeon main course as as tough as old boots.
