Le Rouge Gemayze

French Bistro and Beyond in Beirut's Gemayze district

Le Rouge is a classy, classic restaurant with a “French” petit cafe, bistro appeal. The original – a tiny 33 seat restaurant on Rue Gouraud – opened when Gemayzze first became a popular destination, back in 2004. Their carefully prepared food, extensive wine list, and inviting venue quickly made Le Rouge a popular destination for good, affordable dining. Four years on, they opened a sister branch in Hamra, tucked away on Makdisi street.

We love the original Gemayze location, with its cozy, intimate feel: the cute wooden tables are packed into the small intimate space, leaving you dining close to your neighbor (but still comfortable).  Tasteful créme and classic wood interior, and dim lighting round off the French bistro feel.

The steaks at Le Rouge are what made them famous. Their prices falling within the mid range of steak houses, which offers a great opportunity for enjoying a fancy steak dinner at a somewhat reasonable price.

Le Rouge’s also offers an expansive European and Lebanese inspired breakfast menu, serving Labne on foccacia, fried eggs, and croissants filled with breakfast sandwich fillings. Their lunch and dinner menu is quite extensive and provides enough variety to come again and again and have different dining experiences.
