Long words short, it was generally all good but not the best. Most of the criteria about Chez Jules were quite standard. It wasn't bad but it wasn't outstanding. Especially the service, they were too busy to check up on us and doesn't seem to be bothered to tell noisy people to keep it down a bit. Price wise was... More

Jules definitely knows how to cook. He steps out of the traditional french dishes that you find in almost all french brasseries, but gives an innovative touch to cooking. The deserts are really very original : I had the carrot, confit à l'orange ; I never had carrot as a desert before, but the way this was prepared was really... More

My wife and I recently had dinner at Chez Jules in Orleans and very much enjoyed the experience. Although there were definite language issues, the very friendly hostess was able to effectively communicate the menu choices. Dinner was outstanding. I had the ris d'agneau and it was excellent. Service was very good. I would definitely recommend Chez Jules to anyone... More

Probably the friendliest welcome and service we have had in France. Had read good reviews and thought it would be good for my wife's birthday - we were very pleased. Not formal and only about ten tables; décor a little quirky, but very clean and pleasant. Set menu at 27 euros for three courses and three or four choices in... More

The reason for my visit in Orleans was that I needed some distance, so I choose the cathedral for spiritual contemplation and the 'Chez Jules' for physical contemplation. Both were a very nice experience. The Restaurant is located close to the Cathedral in the rue de Bourgogne and does not look different from most of the restaurants in this very... More

We were here following tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed: A very friendly couple runs the restaurant and takes personal care of every guest. The food is typical French on one hand, but at the same time very creative. Our dessert (warm Roquefort cheese with an alcoholic ice) was stunning and truly unforgettable. Basic French or a dictionary is recommended,... More

I'm ashamed to say my French is not the best, so I pointed to something on the menu and beef came. It was absolutely delicious, Buttery, melt in the mouth, succulent. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. The house wine (poor student) was amazing. The atmosphere, gently eloquent. And the service was what I've come to expect... More

Having seen good reviews, we arrived at Chez Jules on the off-chance on a rather wet evening to find a very warm welcome and a perfect table for two. There is a short but interesting menu with a daily choice from the ardoise. Our food was nicely prepared and beautifully presented by our hosts who were attentive and knowledgeable, even... More

We were very pleased by our visit to this charming restaurant. It is small and has a family-run feeling, with an interesting modern decor and decorative touches to create a feeling of intimacy and privacy. The menu is limited, however the choices are interesting, well-prepared and beautifully presented. Service is excellent.
