Time Out says

A Gemmayzeh classic. Le Chef may have been serving locals for decades, but it never gets old. Simplicity is its style, from the unfussy service and pared-down prices (you can walk away with change from any note) down to the handwritten menus. Located slap bang in the middle of Gemmayzeh, it's a good spot to sit down and line your stomach before hitting the bars. Most of the menu is Lebanese, but the kitchen throws in a few curveballs, such as the chicken with rice and Mexican sauce. For something closer to home, you can’t go wrong with a very generous slice of kibbeh and lentil soup. If you’re having trouble locating the venue, listen up and you’ll hear the energetic staff shouting their trademark ‘WELCOME’ down Gouraud Street – their go-to catchphrase, regardless of whether you're arriving, half-way through your meal or leaving.
