While we get a fair number of pretty fancy French restaurants, with chefs that trained in France or maybe put their own slant on the blue-ribbon standard that diners associate with French cuisine, this restaurant is different. The approach (despite the funny, gently tongue-in-cheek Franglais chalk-written messages) is like the kind of standard, good-quality restaurants you'll find in most French... More

We stumbled across this restaurant in Edinburgh and were lucky to get the last table on a Saturday night. It is a dark and cosy little French restaurant just off Princes St. We both ordered the surf and turf which was 1/2 a lobster and a 6oz steak and it was delicious. The lobster was succulent, the steak was perfectly... More

We found Chez Joules by chance on our last night in Edinburgh. Although a wednesday night in October, the place was buzzing. Great atmosphere. Staff were pleasant and service good. The food was truly delicious. I just wish we didn't live 300 miles away, for I'm sure this would become a favourite haunt.

I keep returning to Chez Jules because it serves up simple, authentic french cuisine. It never disappoints and is very good value for money. The steak i had on this occasion was perfectly cooked and seasoned and the house red, a very willing companion. Look forward to many more visits.

Went for lunch with 3 girlfriends, never been before! House wine good, reasonable and quick to arrive. Chose from two courses £7, plus lots of bread and salad. Service was excellent, food was good tho small portions, atmosphere interesting, almost encouraging you to drink more! Altogether very good value for money. Definitely will go back.

We were looking for a french restaurant and stumbled upon Chez Jules. Had a lovely meal with good house wines. Reasonably priced. Only complaint would be the noisy chatter which drowned out the background music. Complimentary bread salami lettuce with dressing and olives a good plus.
