Had a late lunch here. Food was tasty and staff were patient, explaining the menu, as it was all new to us.

We ordered the Mixed Kofta Grill, the food was pretty good perhaps the portion was a little small for the price considering we easily finished our main meals. I think there could have been more rice and a little more meat. We sat inside as...More

It’s the second Comptois Libanais I’ve been to - the other at Heathrow. I like Lebanese food - one of my favourite cuisines, but these guys do it really well. As usual, I ordered too much - a main dish and two mezze...

I recently visited Comptoir Libanais with my friends. The service was terrible, the waiter was very rude. We didn't had enough time to decide and he was impatient. Not to mention that he even didn't bother to give us any advices about the food. Terrible...More

Although the food was Ok, the service was really bad and the food is too expensive. After giving us the correct bill with two tries, it was finally written "12.5% optional service charge included". That's a no-go from my side.

The menu is rich and well diversified, the service is good but you expect to wait for your order since most of the time they are busy. The sheish tawouk sandwish ( grilled chicken skewer) is tasty but expensive. Overall recommended

Delicious mezze, fresh and good quality. Busy and vibrant atmosphere and friendly staff. A mix up with the bill was easily and promptly sorted.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

“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.
