Simple, straight to the point, and…

… no messing around. That’s exactly what Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is all about. You get wine, salad, steak and fries… if you want more, they let you have a second serving… w khalas!

The salad is comprised of a few iceberg lettuce leaves, whole and ‘spooning’ (yaani, layered on top of each other) drizzled with a mustard vinaigrette and sprinkled with walnuts. Simple, good, and a perfect starter to the meat galore. Tasted just right… can you tell?! (sorry ma lahha’it sawwira)

AEN and I had that with their house wine, which is different from the one they used to carry, and much better, if Deedee may say so. Château de Saurs, medium bodied, balanced and served chilled, this ruby red is fine with the meat if you don’t want to spend too much money and go all out. Yaani, price quality ratio is good. The palate is red berries with slight cinnamon in the finish.

You know what you’re getting, so the only decision you have to make in this place is: Shall I have a second serving? and the answer usually is: Yes!

Reliable and consistent… and reasonable in price, Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is on the corner of Monot St. and Abdel Wahab el Inglizi St. For reservations: 01-332087/8

    For those of us who dined in steak houses in the US and Canada, this place is a big flop, the salad is very primitive, the fries is similar to the ones we get in fast food restaurants and the steak is below par with any previous experience. The wine was excellent though…the 100.00 price tag for 2 people is not worth it.

      C’mon man, you’re talking Entrecote vs Steakhouse?
      That’s like comparing apples to oranges.
      Entrecote is what it is! You go there knowing what to expect. You go there knowing the only decision you gotta make is how you want your meat cooked.
      I’ve eaten in steakhouses in the US many times, but never thought of comparing the two.
      Sorry dude, you’re off on this one.
