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

Gastro is a lovely little spot in Clapham not only is the food lovely but the staff are very attentive and welcoming. I was very impressed by the charming young man who i believe was called Harry. He attended to all our needs and had an infectious smile. Keep up the good work. This place is great and very reasonable... More

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
