My mom recommended this restaurant, so I went thinking it's going to be just another expensive french restaurant in Beirut. But it is not! Not only because of the delicious food that is worth every penny, but because of the excellent service, the pleasant atmosphere in a well preserved old Beiruti house and the well-selected playlist. In details, I started... More

We had a very pleasant evening, the food tastes wonderful especially the Australian filet, the atmosphere is soothing and the average age suits everyone. One small remark is that the waiter should sometimes smile more. A must try.

We were invited to a wedding dinner there, The food quality, presentation, taste and temperature was excellent The poorness was in the Quality of the service provided by the restaurant's staff (the waiters), they aren't proffessional at all and they treat the customers in a bad manner, like they are telling you "just eat & go", they do not know...

This Restaurant is niched in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods not just in the Lebanon but around the Mediterranean Basin. Its old but renovated Architecture, quality of food and the service do make this restaurant the place not to miss. The meat and the seafood dishes are a must. The grilled calamari salad is better than in any other... More

Very tasteful decor, charming staff. A superb meal- generous portions of beautiful food, excellent and reasonable wine list - I'd rather eat here than in Paris!

Fred offers a cosy and warm atmosphere only to serve you with the most refined and top quality french dishes. Its bearnaise is a must and pommes de terre risolees. I surely was not disappointed from staters till the amazing chocolat liegois. Prices are more than moderate for when you will taste the quality offered. Avg ppp inc wine: 50$

The place is nicely decorated with a unique touch in the heart of achrafieh. We have tried a variety of dishes and all were fresh but ok in taste. Nothing special at All which makes you want to come back. Service is good. They say that the menu has changed so we might give it one more chance

Been there a few times. Beautiful from the inside. Friendly waiters. For the food, starters are great, the fish and the meat is good but the chicken is a mistake. It's extremely dry and a shame compared to the other dishes.
