The only thing that I didnt like was the attitude of the staff when our main courses were late. Because my mom had a soup ordered before our salad, they delayed everything... More

The place is lovely. service excellent. duck was not so tender I had to chew too much to eat it. Ravioli were good. pain perdu was good but too much sugar. The manager Abdallah is very professional with eyes and care to every table.

I am a regular customer of Couqley, i always visit the branch in Dbayeh. It is a big place with outside and inside area. Their speciality steak is very tasty, it comes with salad and fries. I really recommend that place.
