Description: Chez Jules is a bustling French restaurant, full of character, located in the heart of Chester. Set in Chester's old Fire Station, Chez Jules is a warm, welcoming and friendly restaurant in beautiful surroundings. Serving the very best in fresh food, using only the finest ingredients, you couldn't ask for a better venue. Soon after opening in 1997, Chez Jules quickly gained an enviable reputation as one of the busiest, most exciting and consistent restaurants in Chester! Chez Jules menus change every day to ensure we are consistently producing the finest, most imaginative fresh food at very reasonable prices. We look forward to welcoming you soon...

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We dine at Chez Jules whenever we visit Chester(which is frequently!)
We have NEVER had less than a lovely meal on each occasion.
The variety is excellent. Food is fresh & tasty with an excellent wine list to choose from.
The staff are unfailingly professional & engaging.
Highly recommended.
Cheers from Alan & Bridgette!

“Average at best”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Visited several times, the food isn't the greatest. Last time I went we ate off the set lunchtime menu 2 courses for £12.. portions are tiny and the meal itself wasn't anything to shout about - disappointing.

“Stop the lunch offer!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Most people couldn’t find anything they liked on the menu and therefore went for an omelette (says it all really) and the rest of us started laughing once the food arrived.

Starter… five tiny prawns on a large plate with a couple of leaves on the top. This wasn’t fine dining small portions, it was just embarrassing.

Main…nothing but two slices of pork on a plate covered in sauce (I’d have taken a picture, but then I’d be one of those people that takes pictures of food) and another few minutes before a bucket of veg arrived.

Conclusion... that member of the family never gets to choose the restaurant again.

“Birthday meal”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Booked a table for my son's birthday -surprising really, as he is not renowned for his love of French food! After our visit he's now changed his opinion.
This was an enjoyable experience and as authentically French as you could get in Chester. Fresh, well-balanced, tasty dishes and good wines served up in a pleasant setting/friendly ambience.
Spotlessly clean and efficiently run. Well done.
One small criticism: cheese portions could be a little more generous for the price and include some traditional French classics -like Reblochon, peut-etre?
I'd definitely go back though.
