Always a pleasure to dine at Couqley: an authentic French Bistro experience.
Named after French Chef and co-owner Alexis Couquelet, it’s no wonder Couqley has remained a solid fixture among French Bistros in Beirut. That includes standing steadfast in the face of the French-Bistro craze Beirut witnessed last year. With more than our fare share of these establishments sprouting across town, the competition was steep. Yet, Couqley somehow managed to sail through the stormy waters and emerge unscathed.
Located in a quaint alley off of the Gemmayzeh main street, aptly called the Alleyway, Couqley offers delicious bistro cuisine in a warm, convivial setting. Reminiscent of a 1950’s artisan workshop, its interior design is inspired by the original Bistros of France, characterized by hand-cut mosaic stone floors, white marble and cast zinc bars and charming outdoor seating terraces. Don’t miss out on a table outside to gaze at an umbrella-studded sky.
Serving lunch and dinner during the week and brunch on the weekend, you can choose your favorite dishes from their tastefully crafted menus, and accompanying beverages from their extensive yet accessible wine list and fully-stocked bar. The eggs benedict are a brunch must-try. For lunch or dinner, go for the crowd-pleasing Tarte Fine de Chevre Chaud or Steak Frites main course or both!
