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

Some of the dishes were excellent some were just horrible. Out of the 7 dish taster menu 3 of the set dishes were suberb. Rest 4 not that great.

All the additional dishes, canapes etc were really good and loved the display.

The sommelier did not speak understandable English, so was fairly useless

Great all round meal. Service excellent, including sommelier. The decor and ambiance are excellent. Foie gras to start was a pleasure, and finished with a nice cheese selection. The main issue for me was the main course. Had four choices. Stared at the menu for a while wishing there were more choices as none of the four appealed very much. Chose the fallow deer. The plate arrived with four cubes on it, occupying about a third of the plate. My first assumption was that they would bring the deer separately. It turned out that one of the cubes was the deer. A bit minimalist!

Still it was a very enjoyable meal.

The last time I was at this place - I thought the food and service were excellent- sadly, The maitre de was a bit arsey, and off handing and that seem to set the tone of the rest of our lunch.
The drinks were ordered after Amuse bouche arrived, so you can imagine that the kitchen was ahead of the lethargic front of house service!
The sommelier was a nice friendly lady, who enjoyed Sharing her experiences and her love of wines, so she actually recovered a bit of the afternoon - the Maitre de was ignored by us and carried on with his grump! - perhaps he did not like the English winter we have just begun!
I am always impressed with the chef, and this restaurant never disappoints- I had the mushroom starter, lamb main and cheese- all served beautifully and the flavours and seasoning was perfect - amazing overall except null point (need a French accent) for the Man in the front of house .

We had 5 courses with wine pairings from the autumn menu - all very interesting and beautifully cooked and presented . The sommelier took time to explain each of the wines, all of which we really enjoyed. We left very well educated about these and other wines from SW France. Service was impeccable but friendly. I used to be a regular but had not been for a few years. If anything it was an even better experience.
My only nitpicky criticism is that the monkfish was a tiny bit overcooked. The other courses more than made up. Thoroughly recommended for a business lunch or special occasion dinner.

Many many plusses and one minus. The minus first. it was a rainy evening and traffic was atrocious. We arrived 10 minutes late and they had already given our table away. We had to make noise to get a table, not a great start to a birthday celebration. But after that it was great. Seven course taster was really ten courses and every single delicious course was innovative with great depth of flavour! Highly recommend this place.

We visited Club Gascon for lunch on a Tuesday. Whilst the restaurant was not full there were enough diners to make a pleasant ambience. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu & were not disappointed. It was not just a meal but a true dining experience. Each course had an exquisite taste and whilst the portions are small we certainly had enough to fill us up! Service was excellent Very relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.

My son, a chef, and I go out to dinner occasionally just for the joy of experiencing cuisine we can talk about together. Club Gascon provided exactly that. We had the 5 course autumn tasting menu and the wine flight, and every mouthful of every plate was a joy, paired perfectly with some unexpected wines. Son abandoned me to go and meet the chef after the dessert - and clearly enjoyed that as well. Service is perfectly discreet and intimate.

Very nice French restaurant, sober but tastefully decorated. Had a 7 courses discovery menu, it was an enchantment for the palate, various combinations of flavours and texture dish after dish, the visuals are also part of the experience you eat with your eyes as much as your eyes. A wonderful dinner.

I visited Club Gascon in its first month of opening far too many years ago.... the restaurant has become one of my all time favourite places to eat in the planet

The food is outstanding innovative and a delight and if you can take the wine pairings which always amaze

The atmosphere is always reserved and the staff attentive without being over the top. I love this place

Food delicious. Starlevel fullfilled.
Strict no trainers policy, checked via phone, been allowed to show up with trainers. So would recommend phoning first. This policy is acceptable for uk natives but is unsettling for cosmopolitans.
Sommelier appeals too arrogant and not dedicated enough for that high standard. One of the wines for the seven course menu was unacceptable.

A very imaginative cuisine around very classic ingredients.
A very welcoming atmosphere and service.
The amuse bouche are very interesting.
The current theme seems to be very “surf and Turf” mixing a lot of earth and sea products. The result is Interesting, curious, but may not be of the taste of everybody.
A must do place though...

Schönes, ruhiges Restaurant. Gut gelegen. Sehr freundliche Bedienung. Stimmige Weinbegleitung bzw. Empfehlungen. Schöne Auswahl offener Weine. Zwei leckere lokale Biersorten. Menü (5-7 Gänge) war uns zu viel, haben Starter mit Hauptgang kombiniert. Essen war aromatisch gut abgestimmt, Portionen typisch überschaubar, aber dank sehr leckeren Brot wurden wir satt.

The food and service were fantastic. Every course was well presented and the flavours were delicate. However, there was another table talking and laughing very loudly while we were there, which I think was not the norm there but just wish the staff had done something as it made it really difficult for us to enjoy our conversation.
