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...

Went to Chester for a few days with my husband and another couple. We love Chester and wanted to share it - the choice of restaurants is great and makes dinner choices hard

This was our first time at Chez Jules but it was on our must do list. We went on a Tuesday evening and were pleased that this was a special night that offered 2 courses and a bottle of wine per person for £20 each (yes a bottle each) We were very luck to get a table although had to wait till 2100. The service started slow as each of The waitresses thought the other was serving us. However it greatly improved once this was realised.

Our friends had coq au vin and we had steak. It was fantastic. We will make sure our next visit includes a Tuesday

We have just visited the delightful Chez Jules French restaurant in Chester. We go there fairly regularly as it has become a local favourite of ours. The food is excellent with an equally impressive wine list. The setting is like a comfortable French cafe with table cloths and wooden chairs. Good spacing between tables means that you don't feel crammed in. Staff are friendly and efficient. The menu has a good selection of starters and mains with some attractive dessert offerings. A fresh bread basket is served with butter prior to starters.

Why is this restaurant so good then? It is simply because the food is always consistent and prepared from fresh by a kitchen team who know what they are doing. Vegetables are always served generously in a hot skillet separate from the main dish so you serve yourself as you eat. This restaurant punches well above its weight when it comes to value. The focus is on quality and preparation. There are also some excellent wines on offer if you want to pay a bit more. This is simply fabulous, enjoy.

I have been going to chez Jules regularly for about 18 years. Called in on Saturday for early tea and as usual the restaurant was busy with a vibrant atmosphere. I went for the fixed price menu which is always good value. The starters were good as was my wife's chicken main course. However myself and my son had the braised beef which was poor. The large pieces of meat were particularly chewy and fatty with the small pieces soft as though 2 separate casseroles had been combined. It also lacked seasoning and for a classic French dish was extremely disappointing.

Bonjour Malcom, we'd firstly like to thank you for leaving us your honest feedback following your meal with us. We're sorry at just how disappointed you and your son were with your meals and we sincerely wish we could have done something to rectify this on the day of your visit- we're always more than happy to replace dishes that aren't up to our usual high standard. We take your comments very seriously and we hope that you'll come and visit again and have a much better experience.

Kind regards,

Alice
