Chez Joel

Located in the Marlowe Arcade, Chez Joel is an elegant French bistro specialising in fresh seafood dishes. Entirely family-run, this chic eatery places a special emphasis on making guests feel welcome and well looked after, offering a singular dining experience with an exciting continental flair.

Classic French dishes like the moules à la marinière, the escargots à la bourgignonne, and the Parisian-style half lobster are this restaurant’s tour de force, and are the perfect choice for an evening of refined dining, especially when accompanied by any of Chez Joel’s fine wines or bottled beers.

For a quick bite on your lunch hour, there’s also a selection of delicious soups and sandwiches, from the traditional croque monsieur to a flavourful lobster bisque, while the bistro’s sophisticated ambiance makes it ideal for more formal business lunches as well.

With daily specials, an unrivalled seafood menu, and an impressive wine selection, Chez Joel is a true culinary jewel, using only the freshest local ingredients to create flavours and aromas that will transport you to the heart of Paris while making you feel right at home with its intimate family charm.

Extensive wine list - with over 20 wines available by the glass.
