“Reliably great after all these years” – Pascal Aussignac and Vincent Labeyrie’s renowned institution near Smithfield Market occupies a stylishly converted former Lyons Tea House and continues to mine southwest France for its culinary inspiration: notably “very inventive presentations of foie gras” paired with “a different range of wines that one sees in most other restaurants, given its regional emphasis”.

An “ever-changing menu” mining the culinary delights of southwest France has kept Pascal Aussignac and Vincent Labeyrie’s Smithfield institution at the forefront of London’s dining scene for more than 20 years. Hugely influential, they pioneered the now ubiquitous small tasting plates and focus on regional cuisines. “We’ve been coming for years and are rarely disappointed” is a typical comment. They serve very well-chosen regional wines, too, and “did brilliant take-away during lockdown”.

“The cuisine of southwest France is constantly re-invented to a superb level” at Pascal Aussignac and Vincent Labyrie’s influential establishment by Smithfield Market, which marked its 20th anniversary last year with a major overhaul. “The sumptuous atmosphere” has been retained, and Aussignac “continues to surprise and excite” with a “creative and imaginative menu that changes monthly”.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
