Restaurant description

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.

    Fantastic food and value. Had the duck salad (good), wood pigeon (exceptional) and gascon mess - an eton mess but with cherries and prunes (very good) that plus a welcome drink for 19.50+service must be one of the great London bargains. Very few people there on the day we went so go there or lose it ! a bit out of the way for me so marked down on location.

    Food was delicious and the set menu was excellent value. It was very quiet on a Tuesday evening but that meant service was very quick.

    Unfortunately the restaurant did not have the dish wish we went for (mussels and chips) on the menu. The range of wine and other options available was thin. Wine overpriced. Only 1 fish dish (squid) which was very bland and not good value.
