The place and food were excellent. I like it. But we tried to make reservation in Dbayieh branch on the phone mentioned on whereleb we couldn't because the phone as they said is only for calling and not for receiving calls.

French restaurant, LOL! it looks like fast food, Frozen French fries and powder sauce or duck from can. It's bad according to the prices, If you really want to eat French cuisine go to Sud (500m away) or Bergerac, there are a real Chefs there :-)

1-professional stuff and very good service. 2-portions are excellent, and presentation is good. 3-taste is more than delicious, fresh vegetables in salads and platters, awesome steak, great potatoes.. And the "pain perdu" mmmmm simply yummy! And the best in town so far.. A must to try!

Great Food if u want to have French cuisine. The deserts is a must, especially pain Perdu et fondant au chocolat. The steak with sauce du chef is delicious. But was disappointed by the salmon tartare, it's delicious but they are not supposed to name it tartare, because doesn't look like a tartare, but it's more a salad. The staff are good but can be more professional

Nice taste all in all. Magret de canard not up to my expectations though, a bit hard and a too small portion thats why i give 4 stars. A pleasant experience all together.

Simply amazing. For 60$ you can enjoy an authentic French meal for two with wine. The steaks are especially good and cooked to perfection. Try the oysters if you want a nice change. New branch in Dbayeh!

Couqley is indeed a fine bistrot, with a nice frenchy ambiance from music to decor. Had an excellent dinner with our premium fillet served exactly as should be. Prices are quite reasonable for the quality and service you get there. Not my first time there and definitely not the last.
