Dropped in here on a recommendation from our hotel and checked TA to test rating. Both steers did not disappoint. Great friendly welcome, followed by attentive service and lovely food. We did not exercise full menu hence 4/5 - but happy to recommend to others

Not knowing when we would be available for dinner, our foursome had no reservations. After being turned away from a few restaurants we knew had high ratings, we decided to try our tour guide's recommended, Chez Jean. The square was extremely busy and we were thankful we could be seated inside. The staff was very friendly (our server actually very... More

We enjoyed this restaurant on Place du Parlement. We had the veal with apricots. The waiter was very helpful and directed me away from a choice I didn't understand (veal kidneys). The food was very good and I enjoyed the broiled apricots, a delightful addition. They had a meal offering with starter, main course and dessert. My husband ordered that... More

Not sure how they make a profit on the food. Large portions, really nice food, amazing service, lovely location, very clean, great staff. Weekday lunch menu is a bargain.

Hungry after a day in St Emillion, we were starving. Peak time to eat: 8:30pm. Lots of queues, pushing and here was the little Chez Jean with no queue and recommended by TA. In our opinion one doesn't always get the best choices in the set menu, nor the best quality and offer too much quantity. We went for a... More

We had spotted the square where this restaurant is located earlier and returned for dinner. It was a very warm evening and we sat outside. We had a very pleasant meal in this busy square which is ideal for people watching. We would definitely recommend it.

We had a few burgers and to be honest it was bad. Just didn't eat well and it was over cooked. It was a little dirty and to be honest I won't be back.

Food was okay. We ordered pasta with goat's cheese (good), salmon as fish of the day (not well done), kid's burger (ok). Service was friendly, but not very efficient. The location on a small square is great though.

Driving down to Portugal we stopped one night in Bordeaux. Searching for something French suitable for the whole family in 38 degree heat we found Chez Jean. All the food was good but the slow cooked pork melted in the mouth I urge any weary traveller to fortify yourself with this delicious dish. The staff were very accommodating especially as... More
