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.

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
