We had the 29.50 € menu - the entrees were ok, the steak was strange but edible - the duck again acceptable but ...nothing to write home about.

This restaurant is in a beautiful position not far from Place du Borse. The serviec is good as well as the food. The presentation of the different courses is accurate and beautiful. It's a little bit expensive probably over the average price of the restaurants in Bordeaux. The ambience is very good and quiet and the majority of the people in the restaurant were locals: this is always a good sign.

Thank Claudio C

this was our third visit previously we loved the place food was excellent service great a real find .... shame things change on our last recent visit the food was very average presentation lacking and the service was quite frankly non existant when we pointed out certain changes the directions answer was well if you ate well forget the poor service ??? and the young undertrained waiter had the bare faced cheek to reply in front of the manager in a manner extremely aggressive for an error made ( error is human this i acknowledge) apparently at chez jean the custommer is not king and the staff can do as they please ??? a real shame......

It was our first night in France and we wanted a good low-key meal. We were very pleased with Chez Jean. We started with a duck breast and goat cheese salad that was yummy. My wife had sole, that was flavorful (fish was not fresh, but it was a Monday night); I had rump steak and frites. The steak was tender and tasty and fries excellent. We both had the tart tatin which was an unusual preparation and was very good. For the price, a surprisingly good meal.
