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.

Richness without excess, with some nicely judged delicate touches.

Very friendly staff and efficient service.The chateaubriand was excellent. Not noisy unlike many/most restaurants.

Overall the atmosphere was nice. Duck was a bit dry and the chips (fries) were soggy, cold, and tasteless.

As ever Comptoire Gascon was great. Good authentic French food and lovely staff. The restaurant was quite but it was the day after a bank holiday...

Great food and atmosphere

Nice ambience, not too noisy, good welcome, tasty food. We went for the special menu which was good choice and good value. Don't understand why their perception of Service Charge should be 13.5%, at least it was optional.

The food was exceptionally good. We had eaten at Club Gascon before and wanted to try the Comptoir. It was definitely worth it! Great food and wine, with an excellent service.
