Always appreciate the friendly and accommodating service. The only place I know where I can enjoy a delicious 3-course meal in under an hour.

Comptoir is a nice, well located little restaurant serving contemporary French food. Don’t expect haute cuisine, it’s a place to grab some snacks and a drink and a light dinner or lunch.
Yes, it’s counter seats or high tables, but then again you don’t go for a 3 hour dining experience.
Fairly priced, the food is good and there’s something for everyone.
Forbes street has a lot of restaurants, this one is quaint and provides a. Ice, friendly experience.

They only have high tables and for more than 2 pax you have to seat at the counter which is uncomfortable to chat, share food or enjoy the company. Food is tasteless and not much love out into it. Cheese croquettes are old and chewy, clams miss some flavour and the butter that comes with bread is hard rock. Pancakes are the worst, reheated in the microwave, thick and dry. Too pricey for the quality. And the service does not make up for it.

Dear Eva M,

We are disappointed to read your comments.

Comptoir is a space to have an intimate casual dining experience. In fact, the highlight of Comptoir is sitting at the counter around the open kitchen watching our chefs cook and we intend to be transparent about the preparation of our food.

Our team is undoubtedly enthusiastic about food and aim to provide a great experience. Here, we make food from scratch, we carefully select fresh ingredients to achieve rich Mediterranean flavors in our tapas.

We disheartened that we have not impressed you and we apologize that you have not enjoyed as you should.

We would like to invite you and your friend with a glass of Champagne on arrival in hope to give us another chance to win your hearts back.

Please get in touch with our Restaurant Manager Jomari, at jomari@comptoir.hk , if you would like to discuss your experience further.

Yours,
Benoit
Owner of Comptoir

Friends reserved this little place for dinner and I wasn’t too sure of the quality nor what to expect. But I checked out OpenRice.com prior to visit Comptoir to make sure we would not have a bad evening and it looks alright. So we joined our friends for the casual Saturday night get-together; and it turned out the evening was such a nice experience not only because of the company but the quality of the food is consistently high throughout every course we ordered.

From the starters, to the salads, to the soup, seafood and even the desert, every single course was prepared with high quality even with a humble little setting such as this. A very good find .
