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.
