The location of Chez Jean is wonderful. Overall, I would call the experience "good." So, I was torn between a rating of average and a very good. The food and service was very typical for a French bistro. I certainly would not hesitate to eat there again, but I would not seek it out specifically. I had the shrimp on... More

I started with the fish wrapped in Chinese nem, actually very original! As a main course I had the lamb which comes with a stunning variety of vegetables and to finish as desert I had the raspberry mousse. Restaurant is set in this marvelous square "place du Parlement" so pleasant after sunset.

Placed in one of most central square of the city. Eating outdoor was very nice. Food was good and tasting. Price not so cheap but acceptable considering quality of food. Good experience.

My hotel recommended this place on a Sunday night when most places are closed. I started with the bone marrow dish "moelle osseuse"- delicious! As a main course I had the monkfish wrapped in bacon and it was overcooked and rubbery. Restaurant is set in a beautiful square and we sat outside.

Recommended this restaurant by some French colleagues - about 26 euro for 3 courses. We very much enjoyed our meal here - nice ambience on the square - tables not too close together, good service. Had terrine with asparagus for starter, then squid with yellow rice and chorizo - very nice, my husband had the black pork belly which was... More

We dined here on the 21 Sept. The good bits first. Lovely location. Think that's it. The seating outside was a bit tight and not very comfortable. We had seen other places with more space around the tables. I ordered the pork. When it came out it looked like there were 2 pieces of pork belly. I like pork belly.... More

We ate at this restaurant twice on our one week stay in Bordeaux. Both were excellent meals at a reasonable price. We did not eat steak, so cannot comment, but the food is very well thought out and the fish was excellent, as were the desserts. Lunch with two plates cost 14.50 euros. We were very happy with this restaurant,... More

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
