Stumbled upon Jules in Gastown and what a great find! Delicious smells as we entered the lobby. It was a busy Saturday night so we were offered the bar while we waited for a table. Celia made us some cracking cocktails - French martini and manhattan. Our table came up and they carried out drinks over for us which was... More

Just ate at Jules yesterday for lunch with my wife and was very pleased with the onion soup and the absolutely superb liver mousse.Both dishes are worth while and have been consistent over the past few years.The other dishes we had were below expectations and were not well prepared. The croque monsieur and croque madame were overdone and extremely old... More

We brought friends to taste the amazing French Onion soup that we loved so much on our last visit. It passed the test with flying colours but the service, however, fell flat. When a party of four is not asked if they would like another beverage that she a problem. The meat on the charcuterie plate was great but the... More

We stumbled across Jules and I'm glad we did. We had the 3 course special for $30 and selected the delicious French Onion Soup, steak and fries and chocolate Terrine. The atmosphere was clean, cosy and French. You could swap the dessert for any other on the menu for $2.50 which we did and had a wonderful Creme Brûlée. Value... More

We got hungry late in the afternoon and stumbled upon Jules. It was happy hour and they served a number of small dishes at very good prices. Since we like to sample different dishes this was just what we were looking for. So we ordered some good wine and a couple of small bites each. The French bistro may be... More

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.

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

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
