this is by far one of the best French Bistros in Lebanon (and there are a lot of them) Couqley is mostly famous for their marvelous Steak & Frites platter as it is really exquisite not to mention their delicious french desserts as well.

Well, restaurants are my hobby and this place is one of my favourites! Excellent food, cleanliness is perfect, professional staff and George ( the current manager) is definitely an added value with his professionalism and extra care of his customers! Much recommended!

Cooqly has an amazing steak and fries. Also good to try some of the apertizers and desserts. It's a romantic place more suitable for a date or an outing in couples

This restaurant is one of the best in Lebanon. Very high quality food ranging from the meat to the confit and appetizers especially the fois gras. The ambiance and decore is very nice.

Totally enjoyed the food here my only comment though is that their menu is so limited, I think they need to improve their selection, like add seafood & other meat cuts on their menu. Other than that, it’s an excellent place to visit with friends

The place is nice but a bit overcrowded. The food that we ordered (salads, appetizers, steak) were good but definitely overpriced. The food presentation was good and the service was acceptable.
