Despite its French-like approach they seem to run a menu with a mix of Greek and Italian cuisine - at the same time. Enjoying Mediterranean food, they have some interesting dishes. Rather well cooked but maybe a bit pricey - I guess the location at the main street is the reason above all for this. Recommended, but nothing exceptional.

Never tasted lamb like this before, the filet was so tender, I cut it like butter. Perfectly served (medium, not rare) with potatoe gratin and decorated with some fresh herbs and a few drops of balsamic it was a taste sensation. Would love to eat it again!

This place really has a great location and the interior is chic and welcomming. During the week-end it really is best to book ahead. This place is usually quite crowded not beacause the food is that good (it really isn't) but because this is a place where you can hang out with family and/or freinds and enjoy the ambiance.
The food is not very advanced, more brasserie type food and exclusive pizzas. It is good but on the simple side.
A big negative is that they do not have PROPER CUTLERY. You are given the same type of (blunt) knife wheather you order fish, meat or pizza. I recomend the fish, it is the only dish you will be able to cut whithout sawing whith your blunt knife until your palm hurts.

My wife and I generally always go to Gastons every time we visit Halmstad, their pizzas are just phenomenal. Try the one with Gambas, peppers and garlic, it's to die for.

Unfortunately the service which used to be outstanding has deteriorated for every time we've gone the last few years. Since they changed owner it's worse than ever. The waiters and waitresses are no longer paying any attention and the wait to be able to order or to make a very simple request can be very long. This is specially the case if you visit on a Friday or Saturday.

Please also note that Gastons is not only a restaurant, it is also a very popular bar where the town "cool gang" often goes. The restaurant and the bar section is completely integrated meaning that the noise level is extremely high, obviously higher the later it is.

I would recommend Gastons to people going out for the night, have something to eat fairly early and then hang in the bar until you decide to go clubbing. Being a restaurant guest of course mean that you don't have to queue to get in and you are guaranteed to get in xhich is definitely not the case if you there for the bar. Unless you're either cool, famous, beautiful, rich or all the above.
For other occasion I am sad to say that I no longer recommend Gastons which is really a shame since it has always been a favourite.
