I've been going to this place for more than 15 years. It's a good restaurant, with a great atmosphere and always, very well trained bar-tenders. Food is very good. They make best nachos and guacamole available in MIlan and very good burgers too. More complicated dishes are very well executed and drinks are excellent, plus the bar has almost everything you'd like to drink, plus a huge choice of spirits. Saunday brunch is not exactly a real American brunch, but is still very good, especially if compared to Milanese alternatives.

Being an American living in Italy, I'm always looking for a place that has "real" brunch. Three years ago when I first went to Juleps with my husband and 2 small children I was thrilled to find a place that both had good, relatively affordable food and was also attentive to my children. This past weekend we went back (our 4th time in 3 years) with another family with 2 children. I reserved 3 days in advance to be sure we had a table. It's not easy to get to a restaurant with 4 children and have to wait to be seated. That is exactly what happened. We waited for 40 minutes for our table that we had reserved. The waitstaff admitted that there had been a "problem" with our reservation (They obviously gave our table to someone else without consutling their list of reservations. We arrived right on time.) The staff made no effort whatsoever to accomodate us while we waited. We weren't asked if we wanted something to drink or if the children wanted something to eat (the buffet was filled with readymade food).
Finally after 35 minutes waiting the staff made another table of 4 get up and move to another table so they could put 2 tables together for us. After we finally sat down it took them 20 minutes (and 3 reminders from us) to have a cup of coffee. We had about 6 people who were waiting for a table breathing down our necks the entire time we were there. They should have been asked to wait at the bar away from other diners or outside.

Much to our surprise when we got the bill there was not a single thing done to it to "make things right" for the restaurant not honoring our reservation and the poor service that followed.
Juleps you royally failed...what a disappointment.

You wanna enjoy a different atmosphere in Milan? Head towards Juleps, on the Navigli area but off the tourist invaded area. Here you will find passionate barman (or woman as per last visit), dedicated waiters and tons of cool atmosphere. Food is generally good (burgehrs above all) and the choice of wines very solid. The "forte" of the place is still the bar where you truluy can call for any drink and get it made in front of your eyes which is already a great experience given the skills and experience of the staff.

In town it is a good option if you want have a tex mex...burgers are good, veal fillet also, and fajitas are quite ok... what needs absolutely to be improved is the service.. there is a waiter which has absolutely lack of courtesy.. he was brutally interrupting the conversation in a very rude way every time he needed to remove the plates... I first thought it was an accident, but we he did it for 3 times we all complained directly to him...

Good place to have a Sunday brunch, the main course is eggs in all the ways you can cook them, moreover there is a self service buffet. Nice staff, the bill is about € 20/25 for person.
