Very good steak frites...you get a real medium rare...not a Lebanese one. My friend ordered the hamburger which was a deconstructed take on this classic dish and it looked and tasted great. For truffle lovers you can dip your fries in their truffle mix. From memory the duck dishes are also very good. Very obliging waiters who took our picture... More

I usually go there with my group of close friends (5-7 people) to have dinner in the Dbayeh branch. Ambiance: the place is nice, cozy, gives the feel of a modern french bistro with a nice view on the busy Dbayeh freeway. The seating is comfortable and spacy. Service: the waiters are professional, not always friendly but polite. The place... More

I like the Food --- especially the entrecote and their Pain Perdu --- only downer is that the Tables are quite close to Each other and on a Busy evening it can get Quite noisy

It was a great dinner at Gemmayze branch (outdoor). The staff was so friendly and welcoming, food service was amazingly fast! We also enjoyed the fact that we could bring our own bottle of wine with a corking fee (30$). I really recommend this place, great experience and fare prices for a very good food quality. PS: Their Steak Frites... More

I went to Couqley for a nice lunch with my wife. Although the place was relatively vacant during our time there, the service was really really slow and sloppy. Nevertheless, the food itself was very well presented and delicious. We had a shrimp salad and a steak, both were good. Besides, the decoration and overall atmosphere were also very nice.

Prime location on the Dbayeh highway. From the inside the setup is dull and very average. Would have expected it to reflect a modern and fresh look. Service is acceptable however menu is limited and too varied. Had higher expectations!
