Food was good at this restaurant. The Christmas menu was okay. We all had a good time though the service was slow. I was surprised that they did not do anything special for my son’s birthday even though they knew that it was his birthday....More

Visited here for the first time. Food was enjoyable and plentiful but the service was poor. The waitress was slow and clearly disinterested. Service charge automatically added to the bill. Unimpressed.

Relaxed atmosphere, with very tasty food. Service was pleasant and professional, however was slightly on the slow side. This is a casual eating out type of place. Would recommend for a casual, chilled, good food kind of night.

From the moment we walked through the door we were immersed in a truly authentic dining experience. The staff were very attentive, good selection of Lebanese and Middle Eastern dishes and range of drinks. Very tasty food and extremely good value for money.

We had the feast menu. Copious and tasty. Nice wine. Attentive waitress. However whole evening atmosphere spoiled by request from table planner to change to another table just before dessert course “because we had been there too long already”. Insulting.

I went here with a party of 5 for my mum’s birthday. The service was great and very speedy. We shared a few different starters (mezze platter, set menu for two). It was all lovely and very fresh. The flat bread with cheese and mint...More

“The Lebanese cafe continues to impress us with its fresh mezze, interesting soft drink selection, snappy service and good looks.” – Time Out The food at Comptoir is fresh, healthy, honest and affordable. Comptoir wakes up early to provide customers with unique Lebanese breakfasts to eat in or take away; offering everything from organic yoghurt topped with pomegranate and orange blossom water, porridge and halloumi cheese and za’atar croissants. Visit for lunch and dinner and enjoy all types of interesting and colourful dishes, including hot and cold mezze – perfectly sized for sharing- wraps, salads, tagines, grills and Man’aesh (Lebanese style pizzas). For dessert, nothing is more authentic than the sweet taste of baklawa – Lebanese pastries in a variety of flavours such as date filled semolina and walnut filled flaky pastry. Drinks include freshly squeezed juices, homemade lemonades and Lebanese inspired cocktails. All products can be packaged up and enjoyed on the go. Comptoir caters well for vegetarians as well as for a gluten free diet. With a friendly team and brilliant red and brushed-chrome industrial stools, bold-patterned turquoise tables and monochrome geometric flooring, Comptoir brightens the rainiest of days.
