Club Gascon is acclaimed Chef Pascal Aussignac's tribute to his native South West French cuisine. Chef Aussignac hails from Toulouse, and his Gascony roots are evident in the dishes dreamt up for each delicious menu.

Club Gascon opened in 1998 to much praise, and was awarded its first Michelin star shortly afterwards, in 2002.

Pascal Aussignac's "market" lunch menu offers a choice of two courses, with an amuse bouche, coffee and tea, and an assortment of petit fours for after. The seasonal menu will change every 2-3 months, and bring together the very best produce prepared with traditional "Gascon" flavours. Ensuring the highest standards and authenticity, Club Gascon's menus are monitored by “Le Comité Renaissance".

Sample dishes

  • Amber tulip flower, quinoa & bitter carrot
  • Smoked duck terrine, yuzu, glazed coffee & cardamom
  • Seared cod, oceanic bouillon, samphire & fregola
  • Roast venison, cauliflower ribs, bone marrow & grand veneur sauce
  • Ossau iraty, spicy ginger, cameline & grapefruit broth

Reviews

  • Excellent food and friendly service

    Highly recommended.

    VG for CG

    All very good - a most enjoyable experience.

  • Not to be missed

    The whole lunch experience could not be faulted. The service was excellent, the food superb and the surroundings peaceful and cool on a hot summers day.

    Truly amazing experience!!!!!

    What a truly amazing experience!!!! Food out of this world, service 5 stars and the sommelier was amazing! From start to finish we loved it, will be returning there and singing their praises to all our friends and family!!!! Wonderful experience!!!!!

  • Very good

    Very good meal and service - website lunch menu showed fish as mullet (which we would have preferred) rather than the cuttlefish.

    Just ask.

    I found it difficult sometimes to understand the French accent, that's really know ones fault.

  • Good food

    Good food, limited choice. Staff very attentive, and although they took on board my dietary requirements (ie no chocolate), when the petit fours were served they were all chocolate based. Just a small detail but obviously I marked them down for this.

    A TRULY excellent experience

    The whole experience was very good , the place , the staff and the food, all were excellent, we were made to feel very welcome it was a TRULY excellent experience

  • Really nice

    The ease of booking plus the actual experience was really nice and excellent value for money

    Amazing Experience with Highly Knowledgable Staff

    What an incredible lunch we had here. Monika who is a native of the French countryside was our waitress. She was friendly, helpful in answering questions about the menu and was attentive throughout our meal. We were seated immediately. Each dish is prepared on request, so expect a leisurely dining experience. The food is amazing.

  • Excellent Dining Experience

    We had lunch here in late March. First, a wonderful location, with so much history near by. We were welcomed by the staff, shown to our table, very professional.

    The food: well, we've eaten in a few swanky places, and this was right up there for flavours, textures, presentation, and, above all, sheer pleasure.

    The service was excellent. The manager and all the waiters were attentive and friendly, and we saw their enthusiasm for the experience they were offering.

    Innovative Parisian Dining at its Finest

    Club Gascon is easily the best French restaurant I've ever been to in the big smoke. Even compared to my meals in Parisian establishments such as Senderens, I would rate Club Gascon a lot higher. Fun, innovative French cuisine executed to perfection. The service was also fantastic as you would expect from a one-star restaurant.
