About Couqley

Opened in June 2016, this locally developed restaurant offers a memorable dining experience blending authentic flavors of classic French cuisine in a friendly atmosphere. The award-winning team proudly operates two exceptional and convenient outlets for everyone to enjoy. With a newly opened, effortlessly chic, and climate-controlled outdoor terrace, find dynamic dining in a glamorous setting in the heart of Downtown Dubai at the Pullman Hotel. Long-time residents, repeat invités, and new visitors will love the bustling and intimate environment at the original JLT Movenpick Hotel location. The dedicated staff at both venues are committed to providing warm, personalized service.

With an unforgettable menu that celebrates the rich culinary heritage of France, guests can expect a range of quintessential Parisian bistro-inspired dishes, including classic Steak-Frites, a signature combination of juicy steak and crispy French fries covered with a generous amount of Couqley’s secret sauce – a pairing so perfect, only empty plates return to the kitchen. French delicacies also appear in the moreish and creamy Chevre Chaud salad, rich and buttery Escargots, and for those with a sweet tooth, the comforting indulgence of Pain Perdu, drizzled in rich caramel sauce and topped with luscious vanilla ice cream.

Couqley’s ongoing commitment to diners shines through in an impressive selection of fairly-priced wines, contemporary cocktails, and reasonably-priced dishes. No matter which location, guests will experience the same level of excellence and attention to detail that easily sets this professional team apart. Join us and immerse yourself in the memorable atmosphere that defines the Couqley dining experience.
