Fantastic quality ingredients , well cooked, generous portions. Uncomplicated menu with enough options to offer choice, but not so many you can’t make a decision and the kitchen is sitting on too much stock.

Lunchtime set menu great value for money. One more to add to the handful of stand out restaurants in Oxford.

A lovely bistro style environment. The staff owners were so nice and welcoming. House red wine and all our food were delish. We will definitely be back for takeaway in lockdown and in person after!!

A nice date night overall!!

The steak was cooked properly but didn’t have much flavor on its own. The peppercorn sauce was soooo peppery. Almost too much to eat. Next time I’ll ask for the sauce to be on the side.

Bit pricey for the quality, wasn’t bad but wasn’t great. For two people with no starter, 2 x steaks, 2 x sides and a bottle of wine was £90. Service at 10% added as standard and charged £1.50 for butter to go with the bread. Also got very small slice of raclette cheese on top of the chips for £4!

In future we’ll just go to the Chester Arms, porterhouse or the Magellan Arms, not worth a revisit.

Thank you for the review us, we appreciate the feedback, even more so if the visit wasn't to your satisfaction. Our menu has been carefully priced, as some customers do not wish to have butter/oil we have placed as separate items on the menu, combining bread, butter & oil at the cost totalling £3.50. This is the same, or lower than most restaurants that we know of including those mentioned. We will look again into the portion size for the raclette to ensure the pricing is proportionate.

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere, really nice wine list. Just one complaint is that the food was very salty (and I love salt). Would be nice to have some on the table instead to add for yourself. But this is a small quibble for am excellent meal, I'll definitely be back!

The meal was very tasty. We had courgettes cooked in a crispy batter which was light and crunchy accompanied with an aioli dip. Then followed by a succulent beef sirloin roast dinner , sorry I was so full I couldn’t manage a dessert but I’ll save that for next time!
Thanks to the Gourdans staff we had a tasty Sunday lunch.
