What a great restaurant. Le Comptoir perfectly describes what a french restaurant should be; fantastic food, small, and great service. If visiting make sure to visit this delightful restaurant. Very well known and probably one of the best for paté in Paris. Just one advise: make a reservation otherwise you may have to wait in line for a long time.... More

Incredible bistro, seasonal menu changes daily, great service, good house wine, quite small & crowded but worth the effort! No reservations unless you stay at the hotel (worth it).

I can understand that they are busy, but service matters and counts towards the dining experience. Food was only above average (have had much tastier bistro fare) - not worth queuing for (which we did for Saturday lunch). Waitress 2 brought us our wine - one clearly with a fruit fly floating in it. Waitress 2 also, when clearing our... More

My husband and I have visited Le Comptoir du Relais twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. There are also 2 small standup wine and small plate shops that are part of the same group right next to the main restaurant. One has meat dishes...wonderful sandwiches and other items. The other has seafood...oysters mainly when we were in town.... More

We have an immense tolerance for rudeness otherwise we could not love the big cities we do. This restaurant combined rudeness + okayish dishes + bad wine. We asked for a regular boudeaux wine, the waitress suggested a "better" one (i could not sip the second). Just more expensive. Service was excessively rude (we are the kind of client who... More

We enjoyed a tasty dinner on the heated patio of Le Comptoir. We didn't have a reservation so we went early (7 pm) and were seated on the patio. The service is extremely attentive and friendly. We were served our drinks within minutes of ordering them. Both my partner and I enjoyed our meals immensely; but we also had good... More

We are often disappointed when eating in this touristic area because value for money is often on the poor side. The Comptoir has a new owner and what a discovery. We were there for lunch, and had a very delicious traditional French food; both the fish dish and the duck were perfect and the Brandade was excellent. The place is... More

As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner.
