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...

I go to Chez Jules at least every couple of months generally for lunch and the "set" menu" is always good value if a bit limited in choice with 6 or so starters and 6 or so mains to choose from. The main menu is much larger. On a Tuesday night they do a wine food deal which is great value. The food is always good and freshly cooked. The place is a French type place (hence the name) and the tables are close together giving it a cosy feel, but if its crowded it can get a bit noisy which if your hard of hearing like some of my friends can be a problem for them as as I say it can get loud. The staff are generally OK but service can be a little slow in true French style if its busy. Great value, great food, recommended.

I had smoked salmon on bed of rocket and then crusted cod with lentils. Very good. Cod a tad underdone - but better that way. Crust was delicious. Service was good and we really enjoyed our conversation with our waitress.

We'd booked in to Chez Jules to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary at lunchtime on 3rd August. Unfortunately they had a christening party of 24+ adults and children in. The children/babies were running around and under the tables and in our opinion causing a lot of noise. When we asked if we could be seated in their restaurant upstairs we were told that they didn't have enough staff on to open upstairs. The part should really have been seated upstairs. We'd booked online via Open Table however would have appreciated a phone call prior to our visit to let us know that this party would be there. As a result, and after much badgering from the staff to take our order then to take our order before the party placed theirs we decided to leave to find a more suitable restaurant. We had ordered a drink and when the waiter came to take payment we received a very sarcastic "thanks for your custom". This restaurant had been highly recommended to us however following the bad service we received and the bad attitude we faced from the staff I'm not sure we'll be giving it another chance. I know the party wouldn't have deterred most people, but we were looking for a quiet, relaxed lunch.

In 2013 we visited here and had a lovely meal. It was a tuesday night and we had the 'meal deal'.
The food was excellent then and we have just eaten there again and the food was just as good. The waitress even remembered us from the year before! Good food good service and good wine. Looking forward to our next visit..

Three of us ate there last night. We had pre booked and requested a table away from the door. The waitress with her I pad was going to put us by the door when she noticed our request. We then had to stand around while she set another table. She took us to it and disappeared, no menu given. It took us three attempts to get someone to come to us, we were going to leave but the manager turned up. When we asked for menus she said she assumed we had ordered. After that the service was OK except the waitress was miserable. The food was very good, two of us had chicken, one had belly pork. Vegetables very nice, as others had said not a lot of room on the table. Desserts were nice. We haven't been here for quite a while and we won't be going back, too expensive for what you get and off hand staff.
