Brasserie Française Chez Jules Ratings and Reviews

We arrived early because we were going to a Celine Dion concert (with 30,000 of our closest friends), so we had a drink in the sidewalk cafe section (good people watching) until the kitchen opened and then moved inside (just as it started to rain) to a table right by the window (probably a result of having made a reservation a few days before). I started off with snails and followed with beef tartare, both of which were excellent. My wife had a salad followed by salmon tartare (also excellent). Our wine choice was from the less expensive options, but was completely pleasant. We would go back.

The service was terrible! We had to ask for anything we needed multiple times.
The portions are pretty small compared to American portions and the menu is pretty limited.
The location is great particularly if you can get seated outside. We were a party of 8 and they told us that was not possible.

Dined here on a visit to Quebec City from Boston. I had the liver, and my friend had the sole. Both were execellent though the liver portion was a bit on the small side. The waiter was great and spoke impeccable English. There was outdoor seating which would have been great except it was a little buggy outside. Though we came from the other direction, the restaurant was very close to the Chateau Frontenac.

Smack bang in a very touristy street, it's unlikely I would have wandered in, but thanks to the reviews here we booked for dinner. Immediately welcoming and accommodating for our 6 and 7 year old with a kids menu that included steak and frites and salmon and rice (switched for frites) with a drink, went down very well.
Steak tartar and salmon tartare to start were excellent and went down well. Carafes of an excellent Fronsac which I think would add upto $46 a bottle, was excellent and one of the best value wines I've had on this trip. Both tartares can be had for a starter or a main.
Tempted by the frog's legs which were on special, I instead went for veal liver while the wife had her favorite duck gizzard salad (also available as a starter or main). The liver was perfect, delicious quality French food and the side order of vegetables were beautiful but the wife's plate was a masterpiece of color, arrangement and some of the best confited gizzards we've ate.
We went for the full pudding menu. Chocolate mousse served un-glamorously in a large bowl with biscuits, perfect vanilla classic creme brulee and their take on profiteroles. All excellent and good value.
Our waiter was awesome, ran back and forwards with great attitude.
Four happy diners enjoyed their walk home. Recommended.

Nothing was bad at this restaurant but nothing was exceptional. From the chèvre chaud to the tartare, no one was really impressed by any dish. Our server was friendly and funny but the service was just okay. We had a great time because we were in good company and the restaurant is pretty, but there are so many great gems to discover in Old Quebec that we probably won't be back at this establishment.

This restaurant is no longer called Le Pain Beni. It is now Chez Jules and has a very diffent menu. The decor although apparently new is jarring - in a sea of neutral tiles, the upholstery is a loud very red vinyl. If it had been in velvet, it would have brought a bordello to mind. The food was okay. The fries and desserts - chocolate mousse and creme brûlée -were quite good.
Great atmosphere,friendly, very accommodating
Great atmosphere, friendly, welcoming waiter and staff. Very accommodating, and helpful with our lacking French words. Great service, there to help when needed.
Nice location, unique and ambient decor, lighting and music, amazingly delicious food and desert! Great wine and beverage selection.

Food is amazing, presentation is impeccable, and my seafood casserole has really good flavour and consistency especially with the white wine I had. Dessert looks amazing, but a bit too minty for my taste, the strawberry sorbet, mint jelly, everywhere...
The food exceeded our expectations, but what made the experience outstanding was the level and quality of service, the friendly, non-intrusive banter and the willingness of the server to make suggestions and share his knowledge with us. For a restaurant located in a busy tourist spot within the old city we were pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail and quality the evening overall.
Great Food without Portentousness
I went there with my wife while visiting Quebec City. The restaurants is a low keyed bistro and has a nice patio. Most importantly, they serve one of my favorite dishes – Foie Gras. The dishes are the chef innovation and the Foie Gras was served with soft boil egg in a bread bowl, liver mousse and bacon jam – an amazing combination. For the main course I had the Atlantic Halibut - another amazing dish. My wife had the roasted chicken loaf and it was excellent. Don’t miss Le Pain Béni when you are in Quebec City.
Lovely restaurant deserves its excellent rating!
We selected Le Pain Beni because of its excellent ratings by most previous diners on TripAdvisor. We had a delightful, delicious meal from a creative menu, thoughtfully presented and served by a friendly attentive waiter. We enjoyed the outside seating bordered by pots of flowers to provide some privacy and distance from the walking crowd, musicians and artists on Rue St. Anne. It was a great find!

Our family of four had a wonderful dinner here at Le Pain Béni! It was our first meal in QC. The restaurant has a very nice ambience with both indoor and outdoor seating. Both of our daughters are allergic to nuts, and our server was very attentive to their needs. It was also one of our daughter's 13th birthday, and she was able to enjoy a delicious flourless and nut free chocolate cake adorned with a sparkler! Merci!
Beautiful and friendly gluten-free safe restaurant
Going for a late night dinner at Le Pain Béni was a highlight of our trip to Quebec City. Even though it was very busy, we were served quickly and the server took the time to make our visit enjoyable. The atmosphere was great: full of energy but not too loud, and such a beautiful spot one couple walking by stopped to take pictures right next to us. From romance to family fun this restaurant is an excellent choice!

Amazing food! The onion soup was delicious. The filet was one of the best meals I've ever had. Our server was funny and charming. We dined on the patio and enjoyed watching the artists and people walking by. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Lovely Vieux Quebec restaurant with eclectic menu
Le Pain Beni was, unexpectedly, a bit modern and funky inside, revealing an eclectic menu with lovely choices around which were guided expertly by our exceptional waiter. We took a vhance and order a Chef's "surprise" appetizer platter to share for dinner and everything, save the bison tartare, was very delicious. While we didn't care for the tartare, it was beautifully prepared and presented, just not a taste we enjoyed. In a city where finding bad food is pretty difficult, Le Pain Beni presented much of what Quebec is known for: fresh tasting, well prepared and presented food.
Très bien in every way!
I was fortunate Le Pain Beni was in my hotel -- so convenient, and my room rate included free awesome breakfast every day. The "Classic Eggs" prepared with Goat cheese and chives (sans bacon for me) with potatoes and fresh baked bread toast was so yummy. On second day, I asked for fresh fruit instead of potatoes and was warmly accommodated. Excellent coffee and they also provided soy milk upon my request. The staff was so nice and service perfect! Beautiful food presentations. At dinner I had a Salmon salad and a unique veggie pizza, at the waiter's recommendation, -- both wonderful. The Sauvignon Blanc was also très bien! Red accented decor -- very stylish with comfortable red leather chairs and benches; outdoor seating also so enjoyable and cozy with red umbrellas and flower boxes in total bloom! I loved it and highly recommend.
Great Experience at Le Pain Béni
I loved the overall experience- the staff was attentive, helpful with selections and enjoyable! I visited Old Quebec City with family and wanted to experience the local French cuisine and Le Pain Béni delivered. For starters we had the Onion Cream Soup, Waldorf Salad, and Bison Tartare, a new dish for us, and all were delicious. For main courses we shared the Seafood Casserole and steak, each done to our expectation. We finished up with the local Beaver Tail (maple and chocolate decadent dessert) and crème brûlée, to quote my daughter, “perfect”. Thanks for a lovely evening, great food and nice atmosphere. We had a great time in Old Quebec City and will definitely return one day to Le Pain Béni.
great meal in old Quebec
One of the best restaurants we have eaten in. The food was complex and perfectly prepared. My husband had the veal. It was cooked to his preference, and he found it perfect in taste and texture. I am a vegetarian and had the rare pleasure of eating a vegetarian meal that had as much attention paid to it as meat dishes. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Excellent experience.
Disappointing Christmas meal
Had dinner on Christmas. Lovely looking little restaurant, brick walls, busy. We had a pleasant server who gave us a good wine recommendation. Charcuterie plate was outstanding but everything else from the kitchen we felt was heavy handed. A plate of oysters with raspberry jam (?!) and and a lime foam overpowered everything you want in a plate of oysters. We both ordered venison tartare that was almost gluey in consistency with hard chunks of bacon - again a dish that should have been fresh tasting and wasn't. We skipped dessert.
Dinner with two business colleagues
Chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was close to hotel and menu was eclectic. This was the first time we had worked together so I did not know colleagues very well. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We shared the charcuterie and bruschetta appetizers and they were both delicious. I had the cabbage soup based on recommendations I had read and it did not disappoint! We all enjoyed our meals so much that we splurged and had dessert. They were all yummy! Service was attentive yet unobtrusive - just the way I like it.
So Good We Ate There Twice
The first night we arrived to discover our reservation had somehow been lost and the restaurant was full. They put us at the bar and everyone gave us the most attentive service ever. We had the fondue which was a real retro treat. The next time we went we were able to get a table and again had amazing service. The food was fantastic and I had the chef's special dessert and it was the best I had ever had in a restaurant. Add this to you "must go" list.
Loved the modern, cute and cozy vibe of the restaurant. The food was all excellent and there were some unique choices. I visited with my Mom and sisters while on a Girls weekend in Quebec City. All of our meals out were excellent but my sister commented that this restaurant was her favorite of all that we visited during our time in the city. She especially enjoyed the French Onion soup. It's in a great location, has wonderful food and a superb serving staff. What more could you ask for?!
