We have returned to Le Comptoir many times and the food and service is always superb. We like sitting outside, no matter the weather. The food is always well prepared, although this isn't the place if you are looking for innovative dishes.

When you want great food, come to Le Comptoir. The quality of the food is the highest; the presentation is beautiful and the taste, outrageous. It's always full so there is not a lot of space between you and the next table. It's Paris -- I think one of the best things you can do at a restaurant is meet... More

We had the meat plate and the cheese plate. Both were fantastic and both were made locally. The service was cool at first but the staff warmed up to us.

This place is hard to get into for dinner, go at 11:45 before lunch opens at 12 ( tables fill up quickly). Great, quick service , with wonderful execution of French classics. Also a great wine list, good neighborhood and interesting people watching

It is not the first time I visit Le comptoir. The food was good average, the once famous great selection of cheeses this time was disappointing. The service Mediocre. Do not waste your time and money trying to get a table here, there are plenty of other options in Paris.

They do not take reservations and you have to wait in a line outside - but it is worth it. I thought that this was a typical tourist trap that has a line for no reason, but it is cool. The food is Great. The wine list is fantastic (but expensive) - they have wines that Michelin restaurants in Paris... More

It's really difficult to find nice food at reasonable prices in central Paris, this place fits the bill. The menu ( both at the tiny bar next door and in the sit down restaurant) has a decent selection of amazing dishes. The desserts are particularly gorgeous. Better service than most Parisian establishments.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
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. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
