Praise for Club Gascon

"An absolute gift."
Fay Maschler Evening Standard

"I left the restaurant with that rare, soaring sense of having been given a truly memorable lunch that was culturally rooted, cooked with honesty & élan, and presented with a relaxed pride. Frankly I cannot think of a higher recommendation."
AA Gill Sunday Times

"At last a restaurant that lives up to the hype."

"This is a place of serious food & serious intent."
