Stumbled across Chez Jules last night when the restaurant we were intending to visit on Hanover St was closed. Decided to eat there as the menu looked good & the place seemed lively. All four of us enjoyed our meals, the steaks & sea bass were particularly good. Good service & reasonable prices. An enjoyable experience experience overall.

It's a noisy place so not good if you are after a quiet romantic dinner but the staff are charming with many being young folks from France. The setting is nice with candles, creative artwork, and bistro type tables. What makes it different from a typical French restaurant: It is very Scottish friendly as opposed to the arrogant French experience... More

Wonderful French cafe food. Very lively crowd - glad we had a seat somewhat protected from noise. Prices very good.

A friend suggested here. £7.90 for a 2 course lunch which is reasonable. I had the french onion soup and the mussels and fries(with garlic mayo) .Food was great but mussels didnt seem that fresh, but still was ok. Restaurant very dark with red candles, tables are wobbly, sometimes i would think the candle was going to fall over. No... More

My wife and I had been to this restaurant years ago, but have frequently been to his other restaurant in Edinburgh (Pierre Victoire's) and enjoyed the atmosphere and good food at very reasonable prices. We were not disappointed as far as the food was concerned at Chez Jules when we went there for lunch as both the starters were very... More

You sat at table 28, the restaurant was quietly busy, the food great and it was sunny outside. All was so perfectly calm, professional and efficient. You paid your bill and marched to me : -"Appaling" "aboslutely appaling"you said, "Never had you been rushed so much to finish your meal" you added. -"You should have said" I replied, "we tend...

If you want a great 3 course lunch for £10.00 this is the place to try. We had a recommendation for here by our son who had eaten here in the last 2 weeks. Very impressed by the food, the 2 girls that served us were excellent as well. Will certainly return the next time we are back in Edinburgh.

We were all really excited about eating here as was with my mum and she saw that snails were served here which she loves and hasn't been able to find anywhere else. Initial service was good, reasonably friendly. Received our snail starters and they were disgusting, very strong smell of ammonia which was highly off putting. Told server as she... More

Packed, the last thing this place needs is a review. Great food at very reasonable prices, friendly and efficient service and a fine atmosphere. Steak tartare is seldom found on menus, here it was magnificent and there was a wide choice of dishes that were imaginative and well presented. No surprise that Chez Jules is full. A must for gourmet... More

The bustling bistro vibe of Chez Jules made for a fun night. The food was varied in quality - with a mixed fish kebab proving the highlight, and the chips being excellent. I was in a mood to love this place, but disappointingly my meal - Lobster - did not arrive until after my family had all but finished their... More
