  • Our Food

    Our menu at Comptoir is based on Lebanese and Middle-Eastern mothers food and recipes. Our cuisine is healthy, fresh and offers a huge variety of different dishes. Our way of eating is all about bringing friends and family together to share food around the table just like we do in Lebanon and all over the Middle-East.
    You will find in our menu dishes such as Mezze Platters, ideal for sharing, Lebanese wraps, marinated Grills, Tagines, Man’ousha- flat breads, selection of Baklawa and Lebanese desserts as well as our own lemonades such as Romana (orange blossom water & pomegranate lemonade),
    Rosa (rose, lemon and lime lemonade), and of course our popular Rose Mint Tea.
    We also make healthy, freshly squeezed juices and have a long list of Lebanese wines and beers. Our cocktails are created using the flavours and ingredients of Lebanon.

  • Our Decor

    Our design is real story telling, based on my childhood memories. We want to make you feel like you are eating in a souk somewhere in Beirut, Marrakesh, Istanbul or Cairo. The décor is friendly, fun,humorous and very inviting – a true Middle-Eastern experience.
    You will be surrounded by colourful tiles which can be found in Arabic homes, courtyards and kitchens. As well as grandmother’s oilcloth chairs, brass tables, harrisa tins, vintage brass and silver trays, old family pictures, Fez hats, hand of Fatma all adding to the setting.

  • Our Souk

    My dream for Comptoir is to create a place for everyone to eat, drink in humble and friendly surroundings. I always wanted to make Lebanese and Middle-Eastern food accessible for everyone and spread the love of the genuine cuisine and warm hospitality. I also wanted to create a small “souk” – market to help our guests find authentic ingredients, goodies and homeware that are hard to source on the high street. You will find spices such as Sumac, Zatar, or Orange Blossom, Rose
    Water, Tahina, and sweet treats such as Nougart and Baklawa. Our handmade bags are made in the villages in the Middle-East. We also have cookbooks you can buy if you want to cook Lebanese food for your family and friends.

  • Our Family

    Our team is our family, we are very humbled to have such passionate, friendly and caring team to
    look after you and your friends.
