More about Club Gascon

Having held its Michelin star since 2002, Club Gascon serves dishes inspired by the cuisine of south west France. The revered Evening Standard restaurant critic, Fay Maschler, champions Club Gascon as ‘an absolute gift’.

With a commitment to the highest standards of freshness and authenticity, the Club Gascon menu journeys through complex and ground-breaking flavour combinations. Hailing from Toulouse, Head Chef Pascal Aussignac was named Restaurant Chef of the Year 2013 at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

Encouraging a serendipitous approach to dining, Club Gascon restaurant presents a selection of small dishes, allowing diners to sample an array of flavours. Favourite dishes include sea urchins delicacy, cauliflower & crisps, or crackled capon wings, scallop ballotine, nuts & lovage. Wines are sourced from the finest regions of south west France, and the cellar at Club Gascon near the Barbican compiles over 400 bottles.

Amazing food and presentation. Great value! Attentive staffs!
26 July 2014 by Rebecca Magee from London
At Club Gascon the ambience was fantastic, the service was faultless and the food was exceptional. I really can't speak more highly of my experience. From the moment we arrived and were offered the signature Gascon cocktail aperitif, to the quality of the bread (it really was amazing bread!) and the construction of each course, every detail surpassed my expectations. The dishes were creative and beautifully presented, while absolutely bursting with flavour. The dining room and decor felt elegant but not stuffy, and the manner of the staff was impeccable, all of which perfectly complemented the star of the show- the food. I'm looking forward to going back already.

This was our first visit to Club Gascon. We ate from the summer set menu which was good value (£42) and the food was well-presented and delicious. There were several "extras" too (amuse bouche, petits fours). The service is typically French: efficient but slightly formal. All in all a good experience, although the cost of the wine meant we drank less than we might otherwise have done!

Excellent service, compelling food, wonderful experience. The four course taster menu paired with wine was extraordinarily good value for a Michelin starred restaurant with coffee and service at £80 per head.
