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

Came back after a couple of years and another outstanding meal. Come hungry, 4 canapes, 2 extra courses, 7 courses from the menu. Oh and the wine... I come just for the wines from the South West you don't see elsewhere. Everything was a joy from the crisp truffle to the crispy pork. The Cassoulet bonbon was a delight, all the taste in asingle bite. I always find this place a joy. Excellent service too!

We had the five course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic! The choice of wines fitted perfectly with the dishes. The foie gras brule was exceptional, my second favourite was the
john dori with seaweed variation and kohlrabi - really good!
Staff was very friendly and professional, every wine was explained in detail. We will definitely come back!

The food is excellent and the service impeccable, vale not so sure it was £400 for two. I had the 7 course tasting+ wine my wife just the tasting and one glass of wine. Plus a couple of cocktails to start. Probably 7 glass of wine of a person would be too much but we shared.

I would go again.

Just off of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon is a peaceful haven from the bustle outside offering a delicious bite of France with stunning, delicate and flavourful dishes. Not afraid to take risks, some of the unexpectedly pleasing dishes included a Blue cheese cheesecake and Fired cuttlefish with squid ink. Both superb. Paired with friendly, attentive service and you've got a great recipe for a top tier working lunch or special celebratory dinner.

A gem even though it is far from central london and
requires a trek !
Will make a effort again soon however may be not too soon
just for the effort required !
A restaurant of this quality would be throughly booked throughout if it was more central.

We had to wait half an hour for the fourth serving in our tasting menu. It was almost cold. We received a deduction in our bill when we complained. But we would rather have paid full price for a better experience.

Very friendly and attentive staff.

We really enjoyed the food that was served in the most and the atmosphere was beautiful.

Only a partial let down because the bathroom was tiny and there were a couple dishes that we didn’t appreciate as much.

Generally a beautiful experience. We would recommend

Absolutely top class. Everything from the welcome onwards, every detail was spot on. This is a very well run place, and the food was incredible. We opted for a tasting menu paired with wine, everything was well explained and every wine matched the taste profile of the food superbly. Loved it!

We made our reservation with Club Gascon through OpenTable over a month in advance. I also spoke to the restaurant personally by phone. We gave them our credit card information, because they said that if we did not show up, there would be a £40 charge per person. We received message from OpenTable 24 hours advance to ask if we were still coming. We answered that we were. When we arrived, Club Gascon was closed for a bank holiday. We spent £25 to get there in a taxi and then £25 to get back to our hotel. We were not happy.

We came to Club Gascon for the first time for our anniversary and had a wonderful evening. Everything was perfect, from the exquisite food - a great mix of tradition and experimental creativity- to the diligent and discreet service and the romantic, cosy atmosphere of the restaurant. We must commend the sommelier especially. She was fun, very knowledgable and gave us great guidance. We were so happy we followed her recommendation! Altogether a fantastic experience. Congratulations!

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.

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.

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.
