This place is great! The menu offers a nice variety of food. The food is very tasty and the waiters are very helpful; service is very friendly. They also offer a rich wine list. Must try! Especially their pain perdu

Nice classic decorated brasserie in a small ruelle off Gemmayze. Good food, with a French brasserie menu. Though i didn't have any mains. Service was good.

Very good waiters, cosy place, good food ..... what more can we ask. The steak and frites are excellent, even the house wines they're using is good (we tried the cotes du rhone) A fairly priced bistro where you will certainly enjoy a good meal.

Dbayeh Branch: Went there again after many disappointing visits. We ordered our usual steak frites and it was much better than it was on our last two visits. Waiters can definitely be nicer But this is probably the best place in Lebanon for steak frites.

We booked a dinner at Couqley for my Birthday with 8 of my friends and it was the worst choice ever. 1) All of our side salads were served 25 mins after the steaks while the extra sauce we ordered took an additional 20 mins (when we were almost done with our meals). 2) While everything else was late, unfortunately,...
