London's most authentic French Brasseries with 4 venues in the capital, GAZETTE captures the essence of local French village cafés with a commitment to fantastic seasonal food, wine discovery and true hospitality all served in comfortable informal surroundings from breakfast through dinner.

GAZETTE was originally born in Battersea in 2007 and had a gentle expansion with the opening of the Putney branch. GAZETTE is described by owners Pascal Even and Walter Lecocq as a rural style of French brasserie, one you’d find in Provincial areas of France.
Both want it to reflect the spirit of local French cafés and offer a cuisine that is simple, generous and vivacious, with lots of daily specials and on-going food events, and where transpires the warmth and cordiality of true French cuisine.

    Is my second time here, great location for the locals. The main course I had was quite heavy handed with seasoning, but I waited for quite long and just ate it (the restaurant was busy). It is a good restaurant all in all. I might come back again, but not in a rush.

    Shortage of staff made service far too slow. Obviously an underestimation of demand for lunch that day.

    We were there for Mother’s Day, table I booked months in advance was too small, although I booked for 5 adults. Service was slow, food was average but I sent my food gras back and the second one was still slightly undercooked. Bill was sky high I used to love this place but I will not go back there again.

    We visited on a Sunday afternoon, 12.30, and unfortunately, out of 4 meals ordered, they had run out of 3 of them. They kindly offered to replace the meals, matching the coat of the original. Service was very slow, but since it was a slow Sunday afternoon, that wasn’t a big problem. The food was good, but the ambience was unfortunately that of a lot of disgruntled customers who were maybe less forgiving of the wait times. I would not recommend Gazette on this occasion but have been there a number of times in Balham (now closed) and Wandsworth and really enjoyed.

    Food rather unexciting with small portions and indifferent service. Have tried this branch a few times and remain unenthusiastic. Have heard more positive reports about the Battersea branch.

    An extremely busy Saturday evening and as there was a party downstairs the kitchen could not cope adequately; thus service after the starters was very slow. Also the ventilation was not good and with so many diners this needs to be addressed. The food when it did arrive was very good and we will return!

    Great local French brasserie style restaurant with good choice of authentic French food and ‘specials’ Really enjoyed the frogs legs Then followed with ‘coquelet’ which was delicious AND they sold wine by the carafe - which I think more restaurants should do. Would recommend

    The food was good as always, but I felt uncomfortable all evening. The tables definitely weren’t spaced out enough or according to Covid-19 guidance, the staff were all wearing face masks, but the two waitresses serving us both had them on very loosely with their noses exposed half the time. I know how difficult it is for everyone at the moment but I just didn’t feel safe or like they were taking the safety measures seriously. If we could have easily found somewhere else to go, I actually wouldn’t have stayed.

    Despite booking the table we were made to wait as two ladies jumped the queue. Those two were known to the host and he couldn’t keep his affection for them at home. He was trying to score some points there. Rest everything was good.
