My main course was variations of Charolais beef. This was prepared as a tartare, as fillet and as tongue, with an oxtail raviolo on the side. The tartare was not very well seasoned and the tongue was rather lacking in flavour, but the fillet itself was excellent…

After 45 minutes we didn’t even have our first course. Geraldine said, “I’m starving.” My lamb dish was tiny but exceptionally good. The ladies liked what they were eating. “Just as well,” I said, “You may never see food again.”…

So just how good is the food at Club Gascon? Pretty exquisite, I’m afraid. I was hoping I’d find it rather disgusting, but it was so good I’ll probably go back for more. I just pray my cardiologist doesn’t read ES…
