Quality, flavour and creativity are just three words to describe Pascal Aussignac’s Michelin-starred temple to the gastronomy of Aussignac's native Gascony where food and wine have a unique synchronicity.

Located next to Smithfield market near Farringdon, Barbican and St Paul's, Club Gascon boasts a stunning menu with dishes that focus on the very finest ingredients from the South West of France.

In the elegant yet relaxed dining room, diners are advised to choose three or four dishes from the superb à la carte menu or to be guided by the chef 's selection menu which continues to excite and delight.

The Wine Cellar is as fascinating as it is extensive, composed of over four hundred varieties of wine from the South of France.

Guest can enjoy Cocktails & Tapas in the freshly opened " Le Bar" lounge area locatednext door of the restaurant

Even though the food was really creative and the service excellent there were several mistakes in what we tasted. We had the 5 dish menu and what stood out as a really poor plate was the lamb which was very chewy and the croquette extremely salty.

My family have been before and we’re always amazed by our experience. The food and service is faultless, thank you again Club Gascon for making my birthday so special. I also loved the added touch of a birthday card from the restaurant! One of my favourite restaurants I’ve ever been to.

High expectations were exceeded at this wonderful French, Gascony, restaurant. From first greeting, through service, wine selection, amuse bouche, the dinner and on to a reluctant farewell, everything was superb. Our only regret was that Arturo Granato was on vacation. However, his well drilled brigade did not miss a beat as they produced some of the finest food we have eaten this year.

The amuse bouche were delightful, witty, exciting and surprising.

We shared an ultimate Duck Caviar D'Aquitaine - simply sensational, served with verve and imagination. We then had a "take on the cassoulet" - sublime - and Aged native beef, cured tongue, courgette flower. Impeccable. Rich, deep, satisfying, memorable. We drank a 2003 Monastere De Saint Mont, recommended by a knowledgeable charming Sommelier. It was so refreshing being advised by a young female Somellier, a master of her craft.

The setting is eclectic - splendid faux art deco lights set against steel mesh border - and the restaurant is small, intimate but above all welcoming.

This is an excellent restaurant, arguably worthy of a second star. It is not though a traditional restaurant, and all the better for it. Diners who arrive with curiosity and an open mind are in the a gastronomic treat. We wish the Club Gascon team, and all future diners, happiness and success.

Excelent experience with rare ultra fine French regional cuisine in London. Well deserved star, and after the second. Slightly overpriced wine list, but very robust.

Following a recommendation I received from a friend, I booked Club Gascon when another good friend was visiting in London. We had the seven course tasting menu with accompanying wine pairing and we both agreed that it is amongst the best we’ve ever had - especially as my friend has dined around the world.
This was my first visit, but I will definitely be back. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, with exceptional food and wine. The staff were polite, friendly and very efficient. All in all, a class act and a real find.

We tried the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairings.
Most courses were well prepared and presented. One course was confusing as it combined lamb with a fish based sauce. None of us appreciated the competing flavours.
Wines were excellent and will explained by the sommelier.
Overall a good experience. Would probably go back, but order of the a la carte menu.

We went for a special occasion and enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with wine. Have to say the service and extras provided were amazing.

Each of the courses were delicious and the wines paired. I think the flavours for each course were very carefully considered.

I would definitely recommend going for a special occasion.

Overall an enjoyable 7 course tasting menu with paired wines but some of the courses were too "out there" such as almost raw scallops and Vacherin ice cream. I wouldn't take friends there in case they found the cuisine too extreme, unlike other good restaurants like Joel de Rebuchon, Galvin La Chapelle etc. The sommelier was absolutely excellent, though, her knowledge was fascinating and her choices excellent.

Excellent food, and the sommeliers wine pairings were spot on.

Only real gripe was that the service was slow. We were seated at 8pm and didn’t finish until 11.10pm, so about an hour or so too long.

A gem in Clerkenwell! Service attentive but not intrusive - excellent and informative sommelier suggestions. I had the "Dejeuner Club" 3 course lunch menu - a steal at 40 GBP. Foie gras "Brulee" was literally a savoury creme brulee (duh - delicious but I perhaps should have sprung for the barbecued version supplement). Venison (+18 supplement) and souffle were flawless. Wine pairings (suggested) very good and reasonably priced. The way I drink (!) my lunch bill came to 128 GBP - I will be back.

A sensational dining experience. Superb levels of service, exquisite food and a lovely setting. Both dinners had either an allergy or an intolerance but these never pose a challenge for the restaurant, alternatives are provided and care taken. The Sommelier is superb and provides excellent pairings which never disappoint. All in all a wonderful meal, highly recommended. Club Gascon never disappoints.

Club Gascon is one of the finest restaurants that we have visited in London. The food was exceptional for our lunch time visit. We chose the set menu which was imaginative , unusual and delicious. The service and ambiance were impeccable. The intimacy of the dining area added to it's charm.
