Description: “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.

Nice Middle Eastern Food and very reasonably priced. But when it came to paying the bill, there is an optional service charge. On inquiring with the waitress, this is not shared with staff . Personally I would rather pay a higher price and know that staff are being properly paid OR not pay a service charge and reward staff with a tip. This is unacceptable and I won't be back which is a shame as otherwise a lovely place.

We had a meal at the Oxford Street branch. Food was good and service was good. What ruined it was the fact that the company charges 12.5% service and they don't give it to the staff. This practice is disgusting and illegal.

Stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant outside of Gloucester station. The decor is simply stunning! They even have a covered, heated outdoor patio with blankets for patrons who prefer to dine outdoors. The food is just as excellent as the atmosphere. Fast and friendly service - our waiter was happy to answer any questions about the menu. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely meal here last night. It was my first experience of Lebanese food and I would certainly like to try more dishes from the menu.
