Chancery Lane’s Cigalon brings the finest Provencal cuisine to London.
Set up by Pascal Aussignac of Club Gascon fame in 2011 the restaurant received glowing reviews for its well priced and varied Provencal menu set within the chic surroundings of a former auction house.

Diners enjoy the best of the South East of France and Corsica in dishes rarely seen here in the UK. Combining earthy flavours of the countryside with lighter coastal dishes, the menu provides a varied choice, accompanied by delightful wines from the same region. Secluded booths, banquette seating and a luxurious private dining room all enhance Cigalon's beautiful interior.

In the basement below sits Baranis bar where bespoke cocktails are enjoyed over a game of pétanque.

Ambiance lacking as few people dining meant the room felt cold and clattery. But delicious and delightful food accompanied by a. Good value bin end bottle.

The ambience and wait staff were amazing. Our waitress in particular was charming and helpful. It’s a lovely venue. The food was tasty, the main was great and the wine list. The pastry was a bit hard with the dessert unfortunately

Lovely, stylish restaurant with friendly and attentive staff. Food is interesting and beautifully presented but very small. We left a little hungry after 3 courses as portions are so small - so expect to eat beforehand or after! The dishes would be better if you could order a selection of them to the table but the menu doesn't really allow for that. Still worth a visit anyway.

Delicious, very good quality set menu that offered great value. They are very liberal with pouring of the wine (maybe to make up for the lower margin on the very well priced set menu), but that's a small thing. Great cooking & a very good evening.

Very nice food, portions on the smaller side, fixed price menu, nice ambience, impeccable service, on the pricier side (50 GBP per head incl. service for a 3-course menu, sparkling water, no wine). They could invest in a water filter for the tap water, or offer still/sparkling water for a fixed fee as other good restaurants do. Instead, you pay for little extras such as a second bread/tapenade (all nice but) 3 GBP and sides which all adds up.

At 36 pounds for a 3 course dinner meal in london you would think you have found a real value for money gem....not until the dishes are presented in small portion do you realise that it is far from being value for money. As for the quality i am afraid that flavour wise it is not much better than a meal for two from m&s. It is touted as provencale food but food from that region is bold in flavours expresssing the joie de vivre and warmth of that land. Cigalon food on the other hand is heartless cooked my chefs who i imagine have not really tasted the real deal.

This was a family meal together before an extended holiday to the Antipodes. As a lover of Provencal cuisine, Cigalon was a perfect choice and the varied menu kept everybody happy. Even though we have several food issues the kitchen was able to accommodate us all. I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

As always, Cigalon excelled itself with the kindness and professionalism of its staff -- particularly Jorge on this occasion -- and the delicious menu, so beautifully balanced and presented. The Corsican wine is excellent and accompanies the food superbly. It is such a relaxing, beautiful space in which to eat, served by gorgeous people. My friends were most impressed and wish they could eat there as often as I do.
