A targeted monthly dine in for me and my friends. Delicious and best you can eat is the Côtes de Boeuf (for 2) and their specialty Steak & Fries

During this visit we were 2 couples, we ordered different plates including the salmon tartare, steak frites, poulet frites, grilled portabello and pain perdu and each plate was better than the previous. Very enjoyable dinner as usual. Would highly recommend.

The restaurant is cozy and the food is very delicious. The restaurant has a nice collection of french wine. I recommend ordering Couqley's Steak Frites, it is the best option to try if you are going for the first time.

One of the best, or just the best, french bistrot in Lebanon. No need to overdo it, simple menu, good wine list, nice staff, for an enjoyable moment
