Definitely it is a good restaurant, delicious food and good service. The only disadvantage is that the price is too high...it is worth trying Couqley.

Here you get the classics that taste the way they should. Quite popular amongst locals. Best part is it is close to bars and cafes, so you can easily hop to another place.

I Like this place, it is cozy and calm. I like the Couqley steak which you should try. What is unique about Couqley that you can clearly understand their identity and food style with the combination of wine which is of great taste there.

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

Tried many restos in the country and this one definitely stands out (even better than the achrafieh branch)

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.
