Couqley: A Cozy Little French Bistro

Couqley is a delicious French bistro located in “The Alleyway” on the Gemmayze strip.
Previously an artisan’s workshop, Couqley was transformed into a cozy, simple and comfortable restaurant with traditional hand-cut mosaic stone floor, a zinc bar and a charming outdoor seating area that is perfect for warmer seasons.

Couqley quickly became a favorite among many looking for a simple and delicious dining experience. Chef and Co-Owner Alexis Couquelet created a menu of traditional and popular French items to please all tastes, focusing on delivering great quality and taste at very affordable prices.You can try delicious entrees such as the onion soup, lentil salad, duck salad or foie gras that are all favorites in french cuisine. Following with the steak tartar, cote de Bôeuf or Free Range Chicken, you will definitely enjoy a fulfilling and scrumptious meal. 

The advantage of Couqley is that it’s just a hop skip and a jump away from the happening bars, so you can finish your meal and drop by the nearest pub around you for a drink. It is also very convenient for those working in the vicinity; professionals can just walk over and enjoy a tasty meal all in under an hour. During weekends, Couqley offers a delicious brunch menu. This is especially pleasurable during warmer seasons when you can sit outdoors and enjoy a glass of wine in the lovely weather. An extensive selection of wine is served at retail price, also giving customers the option of ordering by the bottle, glass or carafe.
