Review

Au Bistro de Michel is a small restaurant in a back street of Ashrafieh. The decor of the bistro is simple and feels old. The menu has a selection of traditional French food at affordable prices.

We went there for dinner. The owner Michel welcomed us courteously and explained the menu in details emphasizing the freshness and quality of the used ingredients. We ordered steak tartare and duck confit and both were awesome. The tartare had a strong yummy flavor and the French fries were crispy and well presented. Our dishes were followed by some awesome desserts. For once it’s not the classic frozen fondant cooked in microwave, but a fresh and delicious mint chocolate fondant. The chocolate moelleux was also delicious but heavy like chocolateholics like it. The daily tart was an excellent apple crumble. My only criticism of the food is that the bread is not up to the excellence of the dishes. Another detail related to the set up is the stains on the menu cards.

The ambiance at the restaurant was nice. There is, however, a problem with the ventilation system. We were annoyed by the air blowing on our heads and asked Michel to turn it off and he did.

Michel’s welcoming and care are great, I hope he will keep it up this way. However, it’s a bit weird that the waiter doesn’t speak French. In addition, while ordering, he was pushing us to order more which made us feel uncomfortable. At the end of the meal, we ordered coffee and tea and were surprised when the bill arrived that they were kindly offered by the house.

Au Bistro de Michel fills the gap of the simple and cozy French restaurants in town. We had a chilled evening there and enjoyed a great food experience. The place is simple and feels old but maybe it’s part of its charm.
