Birthday treat.

Amazing restaurant. The staff want you to enjoy the food & make you very welcome. Most speak some English. On the night we went they were only doing a tasting menu.

Easily one of the best meals had. Excellent and knowledgeable staff. Could not find a single fault. Yes the meal is expensive (150 euro for two with a glass of rose), but you get for what you pay. Cant recommend it enough. Each and every course was well prepared and sat well on the palette.

the only option is a tasting menu for 70 euros without wine or another 45 euros with wine. Whilst the food is very carefully prepared and very nice, the portions are very small and it would be better to be given a choice of what you want to eat. Service at times was very attentive and at other times was... More

If you visit Restaurant Jan, prepare for An Event. Put on your best attire. Adopt an attitude of adventure. Prepare to take your time and be delighted. We did not understand, before going, what an experience Jan would be. Next time, we will be ready. Jan is pricey (69 Euros/person), but worth the expense. It's good to be prepared for... More

Though not all the menu was not to our taste, we went straight for main and ordere the seabass ravioli. All I will say is Jan is a great chef and I wish he every success. Food was great and I would highly recommend this restaurant

First class ingredients combined in a dipsutable formula that in most cases wastes the overall harmony with the sole aim of surprising the client. Not a good idea, at least form me. It gives you the feeling of makeshift recipes, often awkward and unpleasant just for the sake of originaility and that with a more prudent balance of ingredients could... More

This was our last and most memorable meal during our time in France. The restaurant is nicely designed and decorated. The service was truly excellent. They wrote a long message that I had given them on the website where we made our reservations. The message was to my wife about the enjoyable time we had in France. We had three... More

This is simply food heaven. Jan himself is there to talk to and the staff are attentive and friendly. The food is particularly well presented and the taste combinations leave you hankering for more. Highly recommend this place and you can book online which was wonderful.
