Usually very good, especially for a quick set lunch but today was poor. Rabbit terrine was mostly carrot in aspic and the Toulouse sausage tasted rancid (or the fat it was cooked in!). Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff as usual so willl not deter me from going back.

Went here tonight with some of the family (two teenagers). Excellent laid back atmosphere and really friendly welcome. Good honest bistro food - best starters probably the ravioli and foie gras but the mains were all excellent. Scallops, duck confit or cote de boeuf were all really great. Puddings good also. An excellent value Chateau Neuf de Pape (equally at... More

I read a lot of negative reviews of Gastro and I find it odd....I have been her about 6 times in the last year and every time the food and service have been really good. The staff are efficient and not intrusive, the food is comforting and reasonably priced, Ravioli au Gratin ...STUNNING whether you are on a date or... More

Terrible service. The place is a mess. We had to ask the staff to clean the table. Afterwards they took the drink orders and a nice 15 mins later we got the two coffee and a tea without milk or sugar. when they served the breakfast unfortunately they forgot the side orders and when we pointed out the waiter said...

Very disappointing. A Saturday morning breakfast to potentially a great start to the day. Dirty tables, only cleaned on request and left wet. Order taken only to find items were not available and they couldn't even have the decency to let us know. Coffee in tiny cups after being told it's a large latté. And then after complaining, they had... More

He attended to all our needs and had an infectious smile. Keep up the good work. This place is great and very reasonable... More

Having lived in the Clapham area for 28 years I regard Gastro as a local institution ... genuine / cosy / consistent high standards / welcoming / atmospheric / great value. I have been enjoying Gastro for over two decades and although I am loathe to see you all come and occupy space there it seems unfair not to sing... More

This is very much a French bistro. Had an excellent seafood soup. Even the baguette and butter is what you would expect from a decent French establishment. The interior is dark but very atmospheric. It has been going 20 years and you feel they have a very solid identity a sense what good cuisine is.
