Expert review of En Petit Comité

French cheeses, charcuterie and wines in a lively neighbourhood joint.

En Petit Comité opened in late 2010 and fast became a real favourite among the residents of the barrio.

Food and drink: 

The kitchen is a little limited in what it can produce, but there's no faulting what comes out, which riffs around a basic theme of superb French cheeses served melted over toasted bread on a bed of perfectly dressed salad and perhaps some cured meat or sausage. The wine list is all-French, and though you'll pay a little more than for a Spanish wine of the same quality, it makes a wonderful change from the all too often identikit wine lists (Catalan/Rioja) you find around town.

Ambience: 

A large and rambling café, glassed-in on two sides, En Petit Comité is sunny and relaxed during the day, busy and buzzing at night. The music selection has a lot to do with it; an eclectic choice of songs from the last 40 years.

Service: 

The waiters are young, French and charming, and it's rare to have to wait too long except at very busy times.

Location: 

In one of Barcelona's prettiest (and most secret) squares, in front of the Sant Pere convent.
