Mediterranean | Barbican, City of London

A range of interesting Italian dishes that are less common. Beautifully presented, and served. Price is a little high, but it's an experience dining, rather than cheap pasta. More

French | Barbican, City of London

Outstanding experience We are long standing regular guest at Club Gascon ( almost since it has opened more than 20 years ago). We are always amazed by the creativity of the chef and the charming and professionalism of the service. My wife and I visited again on Saturday and had the most enjoy evening , until a guest seated at a table next to us started to make a fuzz and talked in a very rude way to our waiter... Propably the same man that left the awful review below. This gentleman was simply trying desperately to get some sort of discount by pretending the waiter did not introduce their last course. Being seated right next to them , we cannot let this happened as we heard the waiter explaining it to them . That so called "man" started to shout-out all type of things to the waiter and to us!! Such a disgrace in restaurant of that standing. The manager came to us to explain that we should enjoy the rest of the evening ignoring that man and went straight to that guest asking him to calm down and speak in an appropriate way. I must say that we were impressed by the way the manager handled the situation with calm and professionalism. When this guest left and attend to interrupt again our dinner, the manager stepped in to avoid further argument and escort that man out of the restaurant. We and the other guests finally managed to enjoy the end of our meal. As a final class act from the service, we were offered a digestive for this man disruption. This is to our opinion a very well managed venue and we will certainly return again and again. More

French | Barbican, City of London

Food very good as always. Waiter failed to tell us about the £10 supplement on the additional fish fish on the lunch menu. Brought the bill then revised it after we had coffee and managed to try to charge for 8 meals rather than 4 - apologetic but such a glaring error it should have been noticed. Tried to serve us two additional desserts and a bottle of wine ordered by another table - all in all rather shambolic service, which was a little disappointing More

We had a lovely meal with great wine. The starters were tasty and we shared a chateaubriand which was very tender and melt in the mouth. The restaurant was quiet for a Friday night which was surprising as it is a little gem. Will definitely visit again. More

French | Barbican, City of London

The inspiration for the fuss-free French food and the stylish interior comes from the traditional bistros of Paris. The emphasis is on simply, reasonably priced dishes and the menu includes familiar Gallic favourites like moules marinières, steak frites with skinny frites, duck confit and the Côte dessert speciality, crème caramel. Côte is ideal for a quick business lunch, mid-week dinners with friends, and pre-theatre meals. We guarantee you’ll come back time after time. More
