Quality, flavour and creativity are just three words to describe Pascal Aussignac’s Michelin-starred temple to the gastronomy of his 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 'Le Marche' tasting menu.

The Wine Cellar is as fascinating as it is extensive, composed of over four hundred varieties of wine from the South of France with many exclusive to Club Gascon in the UK.

Guest can enjoy more wines, cocktails, French tapas and cheese and charcuterie platters in the newly reopened " Le Bar" located just next door.

Excellent wine list and sommelier selection. Vegetarian menu most appealing. Second visit and would definitely return for a third. Choice of masks were most effective as many restaurants opt for cover where you can't establish what is being communicated. Maitre D' Lady manager deserves a second star alone.

We have been coming to the Club Gascon for a decade now. It's our favourite restaurant in London. The food is very delicate and inventive. The staff is fantastic. There is nothing to fault this restaurant. We cannot wait for the restaurant to reopen after the crisis.

Asked staff to make the music louder twice but was ignored, place was overcrowded so instead of relaxing we felt like on the street market. Restaurant is way too expensive for its quality: toilets in pure condition, our table was moving all the time, tables were not cleaned all the times between the dishes. Its not a comfortable place. Food is not for everyone, more looking nice than its taste. Disappointed.

Disappointing, only 6 people dining and 2 of them were us.
Food was ok, been to amazing restaurants before but this didn’t live up to expectations sadly. Had the tasting menu with wine pairing. My guest was still hungry when we left. Service was too attentive.

If you have deep pockets, it's a good experience, but I've eaten far better for less. We had the 5 course taster menu with wine pairing and it was very good, but not exceptional. There had been a ton of effort put in to the food, but the result was average. Only one of the wines made us Wow.

Four of us had a wonderful meal here last week. The amuse bouche selection were great fun and the 5 course tasting menu excellent. We had excellent service and a bottle of wine in each colour from the wine list - we find having the paired wines is too much !
We would definitely come here again.

Some food was great some wasnt amazing. Definitely not worth the money spent. Waiter was insistent on my partners chair being ok however was broken so after 3 attempts of asking her to move around they finally changed the chair. Other than that service was fast and good. Atmosphere and decor was a bit grim

Superb food with excellent service and attention to detail when allergies mentioned making this a special dining experience. But at £180 per head incl wines by the glass and suggested service it was also a seriously expensive one!

Quiet, well appointed restaurant with attentive service and few customers. I went for lunch and the food was good but in ridiculously small portions. It's no exaggeration to say I left hungry. This is taking small portions to an absurd level. It would not have been hard to provide something more substantial, and while what was there was delicious, it didn't really fulfill the function of 'food'.

Nice staff who were very attentive, but that may have been because there were only about three tables occupied during the Tuesday lunch.

Club Gascon is a long time favourite with great food, thoughtful service and a relaxed atmosphere. Since our last visit they have introduced a welcome veggie menu option. This is inventive and enjoyable in the best CG tradition. More thought perhaps is needed on the wine pairings with this side of the menu.

The star ratings say it all. We had the vegetarian menu (we are both meat eaters) with the paired wines. Very inventive and yet also true to the spirit of classic French cuisine. Excellent and attentive (but not over attentive) service. One of the best meals we have eaten in London. Only one suggestion would be to cut out on the music but then I would always say that so it should not be taken that it was intrusive.

We had Pascal's delicious and unique tasting menus - one of us tried and loved the vegetarian choice. Francesca Petronca made us very welcome and comfortable. Her team of David Seon who explained the wine flight and Karim Lamine who did the same with the food looked after us perfectly.
The whole evening was the perfect balance of delicious food and wine, attentive service and the time to savour and enjoy our meal.

Our friends loved it and agreed that we had not exaggerated the spenders of the Club Gascon experience.

Pretty unbelievable culinary experience - we had the 7 course winter tasting menu with wine pairings (£170pp). It ended up being 10 courses as there were a couple of "Chef's Surprises" in there too which were as delicious as the rest of the meal. The order, size, timing of all the courses was very well thought out, so that the whole thing fit together perfectly. The food was undeniably French, but creative, varied and delicious. It took us 4 hours to get through the whole menu, we didn't feel rushed and the service was great. An epic experience if you fancy going all out.

When I went to tohe restaurant at the end of October 19, it was a proper French restaurant. 2 months and half later, they stopped serving a la carte, but provide only 5 and 7 courses for vegitarian and others (vegitarian contains eggs and dairy products). Amuse bouches between the dishes are abolished, but come in one-go at the beginning of the course. The quality of the food is good, however, menue is too rigid for the price. Also I believe a new feature is £40 penalty for canclel within 48 hours. I do not think I will return ...

We had the Christmas 5 course taster menu. Overall excellent food! Just some very small flavour combinations that didn’t quite work for us- foie gras was a little too sweet for one of us & the creme brulee not sweet enough. Personally didnt quite like duck with sweet potato/butternut squash ( cant remember which it was) even though it had orange throughout. Would’ve preferred a berry with the chickory & liquorice. But provided thought provoking challenges

My third time here, and probably my favourite. Highly reliable, high quality, inventive food that sometimes surprises (foie gras + gingerbread paired with sauternes as a starter!) Much nicer setting since their refurbishment has opened up the space. Probably the best value tasting menu in London, you will only get better food and experience by paying 2 to 3 times more at one of the West London establishments.

We visited Club Gascon on a recommendation on Saturday evening. We were table of 3, who were there for a special occasion and were put next to a rowdy party table so couldn’t hear ourselves speak. The service was efficient but rushed. The plates were removed from the table while one of our party was still chewing. The food was nice but not outstanding. The waiters introducing the food, did so very quickly and rushed away. There was nothing ‘special’ about the experience, especially for the price. Sadly, I very much doubt we will return, which is a shame as I was really looking forward to it.

Food and service, excellent, could have done without the building noises, but not your fault. My only criticism was the coffee, which I thought was rather poor, thin and tasteless.
