Right in the center of Bordeaux.
The menu is of good value, with decent choice.
I love their burgers.
Not a place for a rainy day : you should eat outside alfresco, with the view on Place du Parlement. A beautiful and romantic setting on a summer night :-)

We ended up at Chez Jean the first night of our trip in Bordeaux, and I still regret that we didn't go a second time! The food was excellent, and very much above average. The set menu is about 25-30 euro per person and it was really good value! Compared to the other restaurants in the square, chez jean felt a lot more genuine and a lot less tourist trap. Whilst the other restaurants seemed to focus mainly on steak with french fries with a plethora of sauces to choose from, the food at chez jean was very well balanced and all dishes were very well thought out and executed. Truely excellent, great food, great service and excellent outside seating on the patio. Would recommend and go again, gladly!

One main draw to this restaurant is the patio overlooking a picturesque square. Unfortunately, we arrived on a rainy evening so seating was only available inside.

Even so, the interior was well decorated with rich colors and a clean, minimalist interior. There appeared to be both a main floor and second floor eating space (side note, one table was positioned under the spiral stairs leading to that floor. If you are seated there I would ask for a new table.)

I'd consider the interior to warrant slightly more formal attire (more so than t-shirt and shorts.)

The food was excellent, very well plated, and included a nice selection of desserts.

Service was very attentive. Our server was not fluent in English, but willing to do his best while we also used a little French.

The only downside is the price was a little high for the experience, but not unreasonably so.

Spent 61 EUR for dinner for two including drinks.
