I went recently to Chez Jean Claude at plateau de Bakish near faqra Lebanon. They also have one in Ashrafieh. This was great because it wasn't too far from the ski slopes.

With flavours and inspiration from our beloved French capital, this little Paris in the heart of Beirut gives you one unique experience prepared with passion and quality. Food to wine, everything is above expectations. Forget haters who wrote bad reviews and stay away if you don't like spending on a good evening for a change.

The food is very good with a rare to find menu of starters. But the prices are exaggerated. Friendly service.

I went to Jean-Claude in April 2015 with 3 friends of mine. I had high hopes after hearing about the place through an acquaintance and was looking forward to trying out an authentic French bistro in Lebanon. Unfortunately, I have to admit that the overall experience was subpar. The food was good, but nothing exceptional. The filet de boeuf seems... More
