The ideal French bistro. Delicious versions of specialties from the Auvergne, good, reasonably priced wines and a great atmosphere. The efficient, entertaining staff deals expertly with the influx of tourists, particularly Japanese. Always a real pleasure to have a meal here. N.B. Not the place for a formal white linen meal.

Great food!!! Enjoyed the roasted tuna special two nights in a row, it was that good! The gazpacho was excellent as well as the chocolate ice cream.

Unfortunately this was my husband's last meal out in paris. We were seated at a great table in the corner and the atmosphere is great because the resto is open with lots of people watching. It took 10 min (no kidding) for our SULTRY negative CRANKY server to arrive with menus. She placed very aggressively our glasses on the table... More

This is my second visit to Le Comptoir de Relais. I first visited last year and returned when I visited Paris again. Everything still as good. Arrive early to avoid the queue.

Great place to eat, the food was great. The waiters there will help translate the menu (and they're used to it!). Services was good and food came out pretty quickly. We felt a bit rushed as there was a line forming outside and we were being stared down by the people in the line! The restaurant didn't rush us at... More

Contrary to some reviews we found the staff to be very helpful with translating menu into English. They were accommodating in every way yet still very professional. Escargot was excellent. Beef and veal both excellent. Couple next to us raved about the tuna. Apple tart and special gateau both wonderful with the gateau being other-worldly. Relaxing late lunch/ early dinner... More

Usually booked for dinner months in advance, during July and August, the restaurant takes no bookings so operates a first come first served policy- although there does seem to be an element of "if your face fits" Always a good indicator , I feel, is if there are a lot of locals- there are. Often, particularly in tourist areas, restaurants... More

I wanted to come to Le Comptoir since seeing it on No Reservations. It lived up to the hype and as our final meal in Paris it was one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. Usually there is a long wait period for reservations but between July and August they don't take reservations so you... More

Pros - location, atmosphere, food (a big positive in paris as good food is hard to find among all of the tourist traps of the 6th arr.) Cons - service is slow and rude. However you can turn this into a positive, making light out of how grumpy and miserable they are all acting is quite enjoyable while you wait... More

my husband and i ate here several times last year on our annual parisian holiday. We did not mind waiting in line for an hour due to our past experience..however.. we were wrong.. The owner seemed to be frustrated with all the "american tourists".. The food was okay but not worth the wait and attitude. In fact this is the... More
