Great quality meals and friendly service

I had the slow cooked pork and it was devine! the meal size wasn't huge but the quality was excellent. We returned a couple of times during our stay and had the same meals. Not the cheapest but not the most expensive either. The wait staff were very helpful and the restaurant was very comfortable... read more

We got here by suggestion of our hotel concierge, and were more than satisfied: excellent French food, a friendly and efficient service, we ate "al fresco" in a magnificent location (Place du Parliament). The prices are average (excluded wine, you can eat with 25-30 euro) and worth the quality of food. I suggest to reserve, the place was full (and... More

We were just passing through Bordeaux & stumbled upon this lovely square of restaurants & chose to eat here before our flight home. We both had a lovely fresh hake, sitting on a bed of lentils with sautéed cauliflower & a basket of bread. I had a lovely glass of white recommended by the server following an analysis of my...

We had a delicious meal here with wonderful service. It was recommended by the staff at our hotel. It was an easy walk and in a lovely little square. Great value too!

We visited this little bistro following the recommendations of a local US friend, we dined 4 + a little baby. The bistro took care of us on a busy night, we had a good meal varying from seafood, meat and salad dishes. Food was honest and good. great value. Recommended if you would like something typically French, a posh taverna.

Chez Jean claims to "shine a new light on traditional Bordeaux cuisine" and I can't think of a better summary. Spend a few days looking at brasserie menus in Bordeaux and you begin to fell you know them by heart. Chez Jean's imaginative offering came as a pleasant surprise. My only complaint is that I let curiosity lead me to... More

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch after walking past and spotting a shady spot to sit, we had no expectations and it looked like any other in the area. The food was so fresh and delicious, they also had some Thai inspired options which were great and refreshing. I would recommend stopping in here for lunch, you... More

We went there for lunch. The staff can speak English. The staff are friendly and they will try to explain what is the menu is about. We ordered a plate of pork with dark sauce (the best meal I've had so far) and a plate of "Fish of the Day" which is hake wrapped with bacon. The dessert was delicious... More
