We intentionally searched for a french bistro. I am french, my son is a french chef, we know what french food is. We were very excited to eat here. it started really well and went downhill from there. The owner was very rude when we asked a simple question. The food was not that good, I have had much better...

Went in early for happy hour and dinner. Wine was pretty good and enjoyed the cheese tray. It was in an interesting, pretty part of Gas Town. Nice ambience, good service and good food. It was completely full by the time we left. Excellent steak & frites

We came across this place by pure chance and what a jewel! The bread, French onion soup and the pork chop....sooo good. Ambience is fabulous. The wine recommendation paired beautifully and the service is authentically French without the pomp. Great little spot.

Really enjoyed this lovely off the main streets Gastown French bistro. Fois gras was delicate and nicely presented. Waffle was delicious -toasty and filled with grapes pine nuts whip cream & syrup. We will for sure return to try a dinner.

We had a lovely evening meal here. Food was excellent although service was a little slow at times but having said that it was very busy so perhaps understandable. Menu offered a very good choice & also a good selection of wines. Had a nice atmosphere to the place very well located within Gastown area. Would recommend it & will... More

We stopped in here for lunch and felt like we were in Paris. The Nicoise Salad was delicious and better than the one I had in Nice. My husband enjoyed his French Onion Soup and Croque Madame sandwich. One downside was the coffee, which tasted as though it was made from instant powder. It was certainly not French press! We...

We have had dinner here on two occassions. Our first visit to Vancouver last year and we went back again this year as we had a lovely meal in a nice part of Gastown. We also enjoyed our meal on this occassion. We will be back again!

Dined here with a large group from work. Despite the fact that there were about 30 of us it still had a lovely casual but elegant bistro atmosphere. Would definitely come back here for lunch or a romantic dinner...

I live close by Jules and my choice is always Jules for French food. Casual elegance at an affordable price. The menu is somewhat limited but the moules are "to die for" Moules Frite or Steaks Frite take you to Paris immediately. The staff is fun and the family so hospitable. Stumble through your high school french and feel right... More

We were looking for a place to eat and happened upon Jules. Everyone in the family loved their meal. The service was great. It's a small place and a great little find.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
