Definitely not budget. Absolutely gorgeous place but the food does not live up to the price tags. Go anyway. You'll be too busy oggling the decor to notice what you're eating. The area is in transition back up so hopefully this beautiful old establishment will regain its' reputation as an all around winner once again.

Undoubtedly one of Paris’ most beautiful restaurants, Brasserie Julien is filled with fabulous Art Nouveau charm. From the sensuous curves of the doors to the grandly carved mirrors, the spectacular muted jewel colours of the painstakingly painted walls to the mahogany topped bar and the wonderfully detailed mosaic floor, Brasserie Julien is a study in typically Parisian design. Harking back to a time long gone, this restaurant takes diners on a journey to the city’s heyday – one of jazz music, Hemingway, Dali and Picasso. It seems only fitting then that Brasserie Julien’s kitchen produces elegant food typical of Parisian style and flavour but with a modern, creative twist of international inspiration.

I've not eaten here (hence the three stars), and it looks and sounds really nice, but come on Time Out! 14-16€ for a starter, 25-34€ for a main and 11-13€ for dessert is hardly the 'budget' rating you've given it. I don't know what your journalists earn, but roughly 60€ for a meal plus drinks, is not budget. Even the 33-42€ set meals are not really worthy of the 1 € rating you giving this restaurant. You are really misrepresenting them.
I haven't actually eaten here but having looked at the restaurant website I don't think the prices correspond the one Euro price rating given by Time Out. The a la carte menu lists starters of around 15 Euros and main courses of between 25 and 40 euros! Not really 'budget', even by Parisian standards!
