We were recommended to go to Chez Jean by friend as an excellent value restaurant. Given its location this is true although on Sundays they do not offer the "Menu de jour". We both had just a main. It was delicious and generous. The fish dish was excellent and innovative. The beef dish (10 hour cook) was also excellent. It... More

Pleasant helpful staff. Seems to be one of the better restaurants in the square. Nice duck/asparagas terrine starter with small salad and aoili with bagette. The 10 hour roasted black pork belly was delightful. Came with nicely done asparagus, roast half potatoes and roasted white onions. Excellent. No room for desserts says a lot.

There are many great things about Chez Jean. The outdoor seating is lovely. The service was quite good. Our starters -- an heirloom tomato, with buffalo mozzarella and pesto drizzle; and a duck and asparagus terrine -- were beautifully plated and delicious. Our daughter had the cutest hamburger from the menu d'enfant. The house wines by the glass were quite... More

Our guide from Bordeaux Walking Tours recommended this restaurant. I had the lunch special for 13.90 Euros (two courses and coffee). For the first course I ordered tomato with goat cheese mousse and ham and a candied pork with potatos and green beans for the second. (Verrine de tomate, mousse de chèvre et croustillant de jambon cru and La poitrine... More

We enjoyed this restaurant greatly. The food was very good to excellent and reasonably priced. There is a nice wine menu. Our server was friendly and excellent and helped with translation of the menu since they do not have one in English. Lovely setting on Parlement Square so great for people watching. Definitely a place to which we would return.

We went here on our first night in Bordeaux and it was a great introduction to bordelaise cuisine. The wine list, of course, is extensive, but even if (like us) you stick to the house wines you'll enjoy a fine glass or three. The food is clearly prepared with expertise and love - portions are just right too. It's classic... More

Had dinner there, sitting outside which was pleasurable in such a nice square. Chairs got a bit uncomfortable after a while though. Good service. Starter of melon three ways which was ok, but the toast with the tomatoes on it was rock hard and virtually inedible. Still not sure if melon and tomatoes go together. Main of slow cooked pork...

I ate here with 2 colleagues on 16th June. We all ordered Entrecôte Charolaise, 2 cooked medium and 1 medium-well, having been looking forward to a good steak during our one evening in France on a business trip. Unfortunately none of us were very impressed with the steaks, one colleague left most of theirs on their plate. All three entrecôtes... More
