About Comptoir

Comptoir, Comptoir, we love Comptoir. At once a wine cellar and wonderful French tapas restaurant, this Hong Kong hotspot is a genuine treasure of Kennedy Town and a definite must, if casual sipping and nibbling is what you look for in a meal out. The whole affair is bistro-style and by that we mean the food on the menu, the atmosphere inside the place and the bottle-lined walls all contribute to a feeling similar to that you’d get when dining in the French capital. You’ll find Comptoir on Forbes Street where people from all over Hong Kong flock to when they’re fancying the French. Give it a go!

More about Comptoir, Hong Kong

When in Kennedy Town, actually, no, when in Hong Kong, you’d be missing out big time if you didn’t see what all the Comptoir fuss is about. In an attempt to fill you in before you make your visit, the Comptoir fuss is about a wine cellar and shop that stocks over 130 (mainly French) wines. It’s about a buzzing yet elegant dining space on Forbes Street that is European without trying too hard, and it’s about exceptional French-Mediterranean tapas that we are certain will impress for more than a few good reasons.

That, we feel, leads us nicely onto the menus. Comptoir is open for Kennedy Town to enjoy its brunch, but we’d be lying if we said the a la carte wasn’t where the Comptoir quality shines through the most. If a nibble is your desire, pair a traditional French onion soup with some hot goat's cheese bricks and honey, or some classically French beef carpaccio. For a larger fill there are prime meat and seafood options – the clams a la basque being a highlight – as well as some gourmet pasta and risotto plates. It’s really not difficult to see why Hong Kong loves Comptoir, so, as we said, go and see what all the fuss is about.

Yummy food and they upped the servings of the tapas plates to match the group size.. great choice of wines. We sat upstairs and it was great for a group of eight or less. Would recommend!!

Friendly personable service. The set lunch is fairly good value for money in the area. All the courses were tasty, even the bread arrived at the table warm and crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Their food is cooked with heart. Thumbs up!

We had a very nice experience. The food was good food; the atmosphere and ambience was as well, And the service was excellent. Only the shrimp was overpriced.
