The staff are very tentative and friendly. They make a great cafe latte to my specific requirements.

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.

Whichever meal you decide to have here it should be good. It's always a little random, and this place has its quirks but that is half the fun for me. Mon-Fri lunch express menu option is superb value (check times on menu) - 2 courses £10 - So refreshing to see an original indy cafe/restaurant not demolished and turned into... More

I do not normally have the time to review the restaurants that we visit, but seeing the "staff are so rude" review at the top of the page when I went online to get the Gastro telephone number I felt that the lovely little French restaurant (opposite the Clapham Picturehouse cinema) was being badly treated. The staff are friendly and... More

I go here all the time for drinks with friends. Fantastic wine menu and really lovely atmosphere. A favourite place of mine. I haven't sampled the food yet but it always looks and smells amazing! The staff here are lovely too.

The staff here are rude beyond belief. We walked in past 3 empty tables at the front and the waitress led us through to the back part of the restaurant which was dark and dingey. We asked to sit at the front and she just said no, they were all reserved (the place was empty). I said we preferred the... More

Visited Gastro with a friend as I pass it almost every week and it always seems to be full. We enjoyed a delightful meat board and excellent wine for lunch and the service was very attentive. I'm thrilled I live in the area. I can't wait to return!

Clapham has always had a split personality - upper middle classes having to rub shoulders with real people - but the result is an eclectic accumulation of eateries which cater for most tastes and budgets. The influx of new money in the form of the last 15 -20 years of additional gentrification has caused a steady improvement in the range... More
