[Restaurant Review] Jules Bistro

Jules Casual French Bistro Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Address: 216 Abbott Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 1B2

Jules Bistro is tucked in the heart of Gastown in Vancouver. Among many fancy establishments, it was nice to see a casual French restaurant.

The decor decor had rustic charm, and the staff was overall friendly and professional.

For dinner, we decided to go with the value option – two course meal for $29.

First course – Tomato gazpacho

If I recall correctly, Gazpacho is a classic Spanish dish. This was essentially a chilled tomato soup that tasted very similar to salsa (obviously due to ingredients like tomatoes and garlic). Unlike salsa, the gazpacho wasn’t spicy because it had no chili peppers. Furthermore, we tasted a hint of celery which gave the soup added freshness and lightness. This was a perfect starter on a hot summer evening.

Main course – Rib eye steak with fries and/or salad

Even though the steak was part of a combo, the portion size remained to be generous. We estimated the steak to be about 8 – 10 ounces. For the most part, it was cook to order; 80% of it was medium-rare, and the outer edges were closer to medium. For sauce, we had three choices: peppercorn, mushroom, or herb-butter. We went with the herb-butter, and it was rich with basil flavour.

Side dishes were simple but tasty. The salad consisted of mixed greens with a simple vinaigrette, and the fries were hot and crispy (but not overly greasy).

Dessert – Melting chocolate cake ($8.50)

Although we were pretty stuffed after the two course meal, we couldn’t resist the urge to try one of their desserts! The melting chocolate cake was a warm, soft, and brownie-like cake, and it was honestly a bit too sweet for our liking. Luckily, the vanilla ice cream balanced out the sweetness of the cake. Caramel sauce might have been an overkill (haha).
