Paris: Le Comptoir Bistrot & Restaurant

Bistro king Chef Yves Camdeborde’s wildly popular bistro by day and a refined restaurant by night – serving refined comfort food classics.

Yves’ hearty inventive cooking-style follows the seasons with classic staples for lunch such as roasted chicken, steak Béarnaise, pureed potatoes, boudin noir & stewed apples and braised beef cheeks in red wine.

Wines are mostly natural, made by small French producers who are more than likely sitting at the next table.

Insider Tip:

In pretty weather, be willing to wait for the terrace - it is the best people watching in town.

What to Order:

Daily specials are written on the large wall mirror on the inside. The hard copy menu IS in French and has options from starters, soups, salads, and heavier comfort food classics.

Getting In:

No reservations - join the queue. Get there right when they open or in-between peak meal hours.

Be Sure:

To verify that you are going to the correct address. The word “comptoir” is popular in restaurant names in France and people sometimes end up in the wrong place.

Sister Restaurant:

There are two popular wine bars attached to Le Comptoir, one focuses on seafood “L’Avant Comptoir de la Mer” and the other in charcuterie & meats “L’Avant Comptoir
