Au Bistro de Michel

So I was on a quest to find a decent french bistro in Lebanon with affordable prices and high quality meals. And here we are: Au Bistro de Michel!

It is a small hidden place in the alleys of Ashrafiye (Behind Rizk Hospital). The place can serve up to around 30 customers at once. Cozy atmosphere, super friendly waiters, and Michel himself is just AMAZING. He greets every customer personally and chats with them from time to time, he will make sure you are having the best experience you could get at his bistro.

Now back to the food. You don’t have a wide variety of dishes to chose from which is good for some (like me, it didn’t take me 30 minutes to decide) and bad for others. We ordered:

A cheese plate : The cheese presented happened to be my favourite so there’s no complaining at all! The bread was hot and fresh and the waiter would change the basket as soon as it’s empty or if the bread got cold.

Australian Steak : It was exactly the way I asked for it to be cooked, well done from the outside but still tender on the inside. Simply perfect!

Poulet Forestière : The flavours mixed well, and the chicken was tender and delicious!

For dessert: Moelleux Chocolat de Cedrik: Apparently, nobody eats at Michel’s without having this dessert, and now I know why! (My phone died so I couldn’t take a picture, I will just borrow it from my food reference in life, the great No Garlic No Onions)

So as you see, I am in love with Au Bistro de Michel. I couldn’t find a single negative detail about this place. Recommended to EVERYONE!
