A Lebanese lunch is quite similar to a Turkish lunch. Similar flavours, meats and menus. Always very filling and good value for money.
This time it’s Comptoir Libanais (not Comptoir Darna, that was Morocco).
Escape the mundane and delve into a vibrant, colourful, quirky and cheerful retreat, with lots of bits for sale dotted around the restaurant for you to browse while you sit and eat!!
Plus, the staff are friendly and helpful too 👍
The food was so filling, there was no room for dessert on this occasion, unfortunately – maybe next time….
Lebanon is one of the world’s oldest wine-producing regions 🍷 Source
A few more curious things to note about Lebanon: basketball is the most popular sport, the phoenix is the national bird and the striped hyena is the national animal 🤔 Source
Enjoy your lunch today, whatever you’re having! 😋x

Similar to Syrian as well,all ridiculously yummy
Wow what a vibrantly colourful place and the food looks amazing too!
I’ve never had Lebanese food. However, although I have had Turkish, which I like, there aren’t many vegan options. I love that restaurant, though – what a riot of colour and fascinating objects to look at. I’m glad you had such a lovely experience there Xx 🦢

I love Lebanese food! What were the names of the dishes you had? That would have been three meals for me! 😀 (Well – maybe two! It looked really good!) What a bright and cheerful place. Was this in London? Thanks for sharing.
My husband and I ate Lebanese cuisine yesterday. That restaurant looks beautiful!
This looks so good – we have one in the city centre and it’s food I know I can eat so I need to pop in!
This restaurant appeals to all my senses!
The restaurant colours and decor are so vibrant and your lunch looked so delicious.
Lebanese food is wonderful. I love all the salads, especially Tabbouleh, and the way the meats are prepared, grilled and the sauces are so good.
My first (and so far only) taste of Lebanese food was also at Gatwick airport.I was drawn in by the smell and I’m glad I was. Lovely. 🙂
I used to love eating in the Comptoir Libanais at Gatwick Airport. Sadly, it’s no longer there!
