Chez Jules, 109 Hanover Street, EH2 1DJ, Edinburgh

I went here for their Bastille Day celebrations last month and had a great meal. The restaurant was full to the rafters and service still wasnt comprimised. For our meal we had 3 courses for £9.95 which was an amazing bargain.

Starters I had mussels which were very good and as a main went for Coc us vin which again was very good given the price we were looking at. Puddings changed when we orders but I put this down mainly to them not realising how busy they were - all options available were very good. They even had us up singing at the end of the night.

I am not too sure what prices are like normally but this was a great cheap eat place to go to and had a nice atmosphere about it so would recommend it to anyone

A restaurant that charges £9.95 for steak frites is never going to be a high-end gastronomic experience - but can it still be an enjoyable and tasty evening out? In Chez Jules' case - it very much can.

As mentioned, a plate of salami - a nicely dressed salad, bread and butter arrive on the house and kick things off to a nice start. We shared 6 fresh, if not massive, oysters (£1.35/each) and a plate of charcuterie for starters. The hams and pate weren't of exceptional quality but were plentiful and perfectly reasonble for the price (£5.70).

Mains were about right for the price. Tolouse sausage and fries came with an aoili (£8.50)- it wasn't an exciting plate of food, but the sausage was of good quality and the fries very nice. I've had better mussles than the Moules Frites (£9.60)at Chez J, but what they lacked in depth of flavour they made up for in quantity. The sauce was a bit thin, but the mussels were of nice size and quality. More of those fries were a welcome addition. The deserts were fine, crepe with chocolate sauce and ice cream. Nothing notable going on here.

The restaurant was absolutely heaving on the Friday night I went, but the service actually coped very well. The food came quickly, and the 3 staff that served us were all very polite and nice, despite being obviously stressed.

I would absolutely recommend Chez Jules for budget eats in a jolly & relaxed atmosphere. Don't expect mind-blowing stuff - but its homemade, hearty and for the most part tasty.

Chez Jules, 109 Hanover Street, EH2 1DJ, Edinburgh

A friend and I walked into chez jules on Sunday night. The place was busy but we were welcomed cheerily. This site has hosted various restaurants over the years, several Italian style plus the city version of The Sizzling Scot. The decor is fairly bland but we were there to try the French food & wine.

So, actually the wine isn't particularly French. The list is short and we had a Merlot and a Cabernet - I think both were South American and both were reasonable. Whilst waiting to order, various freebies appeared including fresh bread, pickles, some meaty terrine and then some heavily dressed lettuce. This was a good starter in itself.

There were no meat starters on the menu so my carniverous friend had some sort of potato based bake. Quantity rather than quality seemed to be the verdict. I had mussels in white wine sauce. A tad bland I felt of the sauce, but the moules themselves were plump and tasty. For mains we both had ribeye with frites and pepper sauce. Excellent pepper sauce, fairly average thin style fries but excellent steaks - cooked rare as requested. Best of all at £9.95 this is good value for quality steak in the evening in the city centre. We finished our meal with some brie cheese that was nice and stinky.

So, chez jules has been reborn on Hanover Street. This is a welcome addition to the city centre and offers good value food in plentiful portions. The decor needs an uplift, the wine list doesn't inspire but the food is very good.

Great Steaks at a grear price (£10) with a Chef who knows what "rare" means.

Chez Jules, 109 Hanover Street, EH2 1DJ, Edinburgh

The place was very busy but that doesn't excuse the erratic service. The staff couldn't have been less interested. The food was an insult. Properly burned (black) toasted bread with two of the goats cheese starters, the salad lyonnaise was lazily thrown together and inedible - they didn't charge for it. The steaks were too fatty and they ran out of the wine we were drinking. We had friends with us from London and we were embarrassed. Never again.
