Chez Gaston

Edit This

Chez Gaston is located on North Parade Street just a short walk from the city center in Oxford.  I have been a devoted fan since this restaurant opened in the middle 1990s.  In the beginning, only French fare was available on the menu.  By 2002, it was necessary for the chef to bow to the average Brit's tastes by including obligatory menu items such as curried chicken sandwiches, in order to survive.  The variety of crepes was scaled back to about half a dozen savoury and half a dozen sweet.  This is a pity, as newer patrons will never have the more..

Browns Restaurants Ltd

Edit This

Browns is a veritable institution.  Back in the early 80s it was simply the 'in' place.  Queues would form every weekend in order to get in (no reservations) and students would happily stand in the cold for an hour or more.  It was then one of the places with the best atmosphere and some good food, like their steak pies.  Browns today remains unchanged with regard to its decor (the only difference being the bistro chairs, now upholstered!), but its menu has changed a great deal.  You will now find a good selection of European dishes and English ones, more..
