Gutsy French dishes near Smithfield Market

Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access
Service charge

Comptoir deals in the gutsy food of southwest France, delivering simple market-driven cooking with full-on flavours. Seared cod, baby gem and chorizo, wild garlic sauce is well executed, and desserts - like lemon tart or a classic chocolate fondant - keep things simple yet show acute technical ability in their making. The decor fits the bill with its modern-rustic vibe; exposed brickwork and ducting, dinky elbow-to-elbow wooden tables, small velour-covered chairs and wines tantalising from their shelves, while the miniscule deli counter - with displays of breads, conserves, pastries and the like - offers supplies to take away. Well-chosen wines are from southwest France... where else?
