Le chef or better to kill myself ! May 23, 2010
Absolutely junk food ! A good female friend of mine suggest this restaurant !!!
And think what happen when come back to Greece !
The owner ? server ? decoy ? whatever he was every fifteen seconds talk the passing peoples welcome ! welcome ... and welcome ... loud and strong :( gkrrr !
But I must follow my friend offer and just get inside to try them kitchen !
The first looking inside the restaurant is below normal but I said let's try the food !
If you are a little bit observant you will see many wrong thinks . About the cleanness to be basically for a restaurant ! Just a dirty and slipshod toilet area ,a breath away from the kitchen ... to say disgust it's nothing :)
Anyway let's wait about the food . I am very tractable with all foods and seldom I don't empty the plates , but here happen !!!
Order some Lebanese (Arab dishes) , some meat , salads etc ! But my buddy looking to eat a spaghetti from early the morning had this passion :) , so he ask the serve if they have and said yes ... wasn't able to hear his nagging for the disgust plate ! Try a little bit and he was absolutely right :) Also the salad was cut many hours ago ! The meat ? I ate , because was hungry !
Try to relax him and finally looking all this situation and we start having a nervous laugh about the restaurant the owner the toilet and the food !
Finally left our plates as you will see in the pictures ! We pay just peanuts but we left hungry with bad remembers !
A Mc Donald or a Kfc is more great than this one ! Means is below a Junk food !
I don't recommend for you because is unacceptable but if you want it take your risk and a toilet paper :)
Personally ... Le chef or better to kill myself :)

genuine and tasty May 10, 2010
The restaurant Le Chef in the heart of Gemmayzeh district in Beirut is a must if you visit this city.
It has a genuine look of the past and it is always crowded with guests, locals as well as tourists. The restaurant is small with its some 30 seats and the service is excellent. The charismatic head-waiter make you feel like a VIP and he is welcoming every guest with some personal words. You are served a good starter of some pickles, olives and bread as well as a cyme of fresh mint. The food is like home cocked and very lebanese. Lamb, chicken, aubergine, walnuts and almonds are all frequent in the courses. It is very tasty and Le Chef persists staying with prices like twenty years ago. All is very cheap but the value is extremely high. Don t miss this place that really is something special.
