Madison Street a a busy road off Hamra. The outlet is nicely decorated. Their menu is varied and caters a wide range of tastes.

I really enjoy having a late lunch in this place located on Makdisi Street. It has great food which would pair impeccably with a nice glass of wine. What I usually have is either their steak or chicken platter if not their "plat du jour". Never a disappointment le rouge is now under renovation.

Invited 8 employees for dinner at le Rouge in Hamra on a Friday evening. Le Rouge because it’s in our neighbourhood and we had a pretty good experience there before. It seems they changed the team and certainly not for the better. It started when our orders came: people who ordered starters got their starters at the same time when... More

This place used to be good. Over the years however it has lost standards with a non interesting menu and tasteless food. The variety is basic and simple, as is the food. Whole in whole nothing to write hone about, and given the prices non value

As is typical in Beirut, price of meals do not necessarily equate to quality of the food or service like in much of the world. Very hungry for a steak my favorite restaurant was closed, as it was Sunday, so I tried La Rouge a third time in two years. One would think I learned the other times that this... More

Started off with what seemed to be a nice receipt of titbit of grilled aubergine with spinach, wall nuts, red pepper, and a mixture of cheese. That read nice but tasted terrible. The titbit came without the red pepper, aubergine wasn't well grilled, wall nuts were finely minced, and the cheese combination wasn't yummy. I Wouldn't advise anyone to order... More

Not superbe, but the food was good and the location convenient. The starters where particularly good and also the fish was nice but I prefer my dishes with less sauce so to have a beter taste of the food itself. Apparently the steak is vers good, but I do not dat meat. The staff was friendly, the service was good.
