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.

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.

    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).

    Lovely venue and great service. The food is very good. My one criticism is only relevant to vegetarians - the chips (which are often required as a side main for healthy appetites) are dipped in duck fat. Its location can only get better once crossrail opens.

    We were a group of 5 and all our food was delicious. Two of us shared the chateaubriand which was melt-in-the-mouth with a wonderful flavour ( the offer of 50% off any wine that went with it was a bonus too). The service was friendly and efficient and joy of joys it wasn't too noisey or rushed. A lovely find.

    Felt the standard had dropped since my last visit in 2010.
    Food arrived cold.
    Steak was not cooked as I requested.
    There were not many dining which was not a surprise.
    We are at Moro 2 weeks before on a Saturday which is also in Farringdon area and the restaurant was full and the standard was still excellent after all these years.
    Time for an increase in effort from CG I think.

    Staff friendly, food tasty, though the guinea fowl was undercooked and a bit red near the bone. The dessert was ordered at the same time as the main meal on a fixed price menu but took over 30 mins to arrive. I was sitting by the window and it was draughty. Disappointing.
