Had different vegan options for a recent visit and I was very happy with the freshness and flavours. Home made hummus is always delicious but Chez Jules has always catered for a wide range of tastes!More

If you want good quality French food and good service you really can't go wrong. Maybe avoid if you're veggie! They have got the ambiance right.
