Review by Souad

Couqley is a very famous French bistro in Beirut with two branches in Gemmayzeh and Dbayeh. The restaurant’s menu offers the traditional French musts from the soupe à l’oignon to the traditional entrecôte. In addition, if you’re a wine lover, you’ll be thrilled with the wine variety.

The Gemmayzeh branch has an inside hall and a terrace. The design of the restaurant is very typical of a French bistro with a warm atmosphere.

Couqley is famous for its good cuisine but when we visited the restaurant we didn’t appreciate the experience. The meat was less than average and the service was awful. I had a fly in my salad so I didn’t eat it. When the server came to take the plates, he saw the fly but didn’t apologize or react.

Prices are higher than average but some people think it’s worth it.

    My favorite French restaurant in Lebanon. Great atmosphere, good food - and a constancy in delivering such quality - it almost feels as though you're no longer in Lebanon for a brief time. Don't get me wrong I love Lebanon... But this place really has a French feel to it. A must-try!

    Good food but very expensive for what we eat. Gemmayzeh is good but Dbayeh no. I could not eat the greasy grilled salmon.

    The quintessential french bistro... I liked the food (steak, tiramisu, ...), the atmosphere, the service... Everything was perfect!

    I like the gemmayzeh atmosphere more than the one in Dbayeh. Like the food and find that the pricing is good too.

    Best way for visiting france and enjoying the french food, is by passing to the alleyway in gemayzeh and having lunch or dinner in a romantic ambiance, delicious food and wonderful service.

    It is the typical spirit of a french bistro. You will enjoy it as a couple or group, whether at lunch or dinner. It is worth a try!
