    Probably the best steak I’ve ever had - we shared a Porterhouse cooked to perfection with very tasty shallots & salad and a huge bowl of hot crispy fries!

    I love this little place. The food is always great- service super friendly. They have expanded their fish offerings it seems which works for me- and their courgette fries are AMAZING. It isn't an inexpensive dinner, but it an authentic local favourite for us.

    Been to Gourdans previously and, once again, the place did not disappoint. Food is excellent and well-priced, owners and staff are friendly and helpful and the place has a relaxed but welcoming atmosphere. I've been to comparable places in London e.g. Zelman meats and Gourdan's stacks up favourably in taste and value. Strongly recommended!

    Good menu options including a ‘demi steak’ which was just the right size for me. Good wines to choose from and a decent dessert menu which is always important! The food is outstanding, really good quality and delicious. The team are welcoming and can advise about wines and any aspects of the menu. Would definitely recommend and will definitely go back.

    The service was great with the somewhat complex choice of specials explained well. Wine choice limited but thoughtfully chosen. Only fault was that one item on the menu that wasn’t available was not known by the serving staff until after two of the party had ordered it. The quality of the steaks is superb, the best I have had ANYWHERE (UK and overseas)

    Fantastic find…will definitely be back! We decided to go for the rump, as a good steak restaurant should be able to cook a rump well and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. Beautifully presented and great value. Very generous portions of fries were included and choose a couple of sides that were huge too. No room for dessert unfortunately. Can’t wait for an excuse to re-visit!

    Good food and good service, only small criticism would be with starter , deli board we had the six choices , three cheese , three meat. On arrival was beautifully presented but... it was all mixed so I was unable to tell the difference between 2 of the three meats and the 3 cheeses which I’d never had before and was looking to trying , but wanted to know which was which. I could have asked a waitress, but they were very busy and I just think in the future would be nice to distinguish between the choices.

    Gourdans Steak FritesResponded on 8 March 2022Hi David, many thanks for the review with the feedback noted. The front of house will be trained to advise our diners on how to distinguish between the choices on the deli boards for our diners to enjoy the experience of each delicious produce we have sourced.

    Service was friendly and the atmosphere was really nice. We ordered the house pickles which we didn’t realise only consisted of 3 small pickles and other pickled veg. Was a little disappointed. The burrata salad special had a very acidic dressing which was off putting, a shame as the rest of the dish was great. We had the same issue with the aioli, again very acidic. Steak was cooked perfectly as were the fries. Hopefully it was an off day in the kitchen as we really like the vibe of the restaurant and the concept and would be up for giving it another try in the future.

    Such a lovely unique venue to try in St Clements. The food was amazing, the menu wasn't full of lots of things, it was instead hand picked items with high quality ingredients. I'm drooling just thinking of how good the steak was, with the most generous bowl of frites! We also had desserts, all three of us picking something different each as delicious as the next. Will definitely be returning!

    We visited Gourdans mid afternoon and despite the restaurant being quiet we were made very welcome with friendly service. The lunch menu represented excellent value and has made us want to come back in the evening to try some of the other options available. Our steaks were very tasty although I would potentially order on the rarer side next time. The specials boards seemed to have plenty of options for pescatarians and vegetarians too so there really is something here to satisfy if steak isn't your thing.

    Superb all round. We had a generous portion of courgette fries and aioli to start, which was delicious. We then shared a cote de bouef from the specials, which was well worth it! It was a fantastic cut of meat, perfectly cooked and seasoned, and served with excellent fries, sauces and salad. All washed down with a tasty and reasonably priced bottle of wine. Couldn’t fault it. The service was excellent - friendly, helpful and not intrusive - and it was a nice place to be. Just a shame it was so quiet when we were there, but we will definitely be back!
