Meet the owner

Eric Strippoli was a successful restaurateur in his home country of France, opening his first restaurant in 1985 in Grenoble and expanding to three more locations in the area over the following ten years. He moved to Canada with his Toronto-born wife in 1999 and decided to continue his lifelong love of food by opening Jules Bistro in 2000. He named it after his son Julian’s nickname, Jules.

The Spadina location was so successful that he and a friend opened another Jules Bistro on Queen Street West in 2016 with the same menu and same simple, cozy décor. “There is nothing fancy in our design,” Eric says. “We like being simple and humble. When you come in you’re a client for the rest of your life.”

    Say “oui oui” to these French bistros in Toronto

    Say “oui oui” to these French bistros in Toronto

    Located on Spadina Avenu, Jules Bistro is unassuming on the outside, with minimalist decor that lets the food do the talking. The lunch hour kitchen is always bustling and continues to please into the evening with a focus on Southern France and Mediterranean dishes. Moules frites, steamed mussels and seafood linguini highlight the dinner menu.
