Very nice ambiance and view of the square. I had one of the best pastas in my life, with goat cheese, dried tomatoes and arugula. The menus cost 28 euro and it is worth it.

Excellent start with delicious seafood but the dish of the day was just so-so. Nice place on a very cute square though.

We were travelling through Bordeax on the day of our 41 wedding anniversary. A search of possible restaurants for a celebration came up, amongst others, with Chez Jean. We went there to book 2 days before the planned dinner, and while booking, not only met one of the waitreses but also the chef. As my wife is vegetarian (and the... More

We got an outside table (and it was a night for heaters, so we appreciated that they had them, and that they were turned on). We enjoyed our meal - the service was good, the food well prepared and tasty. I really liked the Rigatoni with Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomato, Pine Nuts and Cream. The only issue, because the...

We were heading for a TripAdvisor recommendation in the Parlement area - but it was closed. So we spotted where the locals ate, and we were not disappointed. Excellent lunch and good value for money.

Nice staff, good service. Hungry and looking for somewhere to eat on a busy Saturday night. Filled the bill adequately. Biggest and most delicious cream puff in the square. Nicely presented food. Nice table in bar area. Hit the spot nicely.

Restaurants are on 3 of 4 sides of this square, and Chez, Jean is the one with the "reputation." If you prefer to eat inside to avoid the noise and smokers on the plaza, you will find a small, simple room with 3 tables close to the door and several more up a few steps further inside. The food was... More

A very busy Sunday night...the upstairs was booked by a HUGE noisy group. Luckily, we were seated downstairs and for most of our dinner, almost by ourselves, very quiet, like a private dining room. Same waiter as last year. This guy definitely deserves an award for best waiter ever. We were well taken care of and he noticed every little... More

The meal at Chez Jean was disappointing at best. We were given a nice table just outside the door. While deciding on dinner we ordered a glass of champagne which comes in a lovely looking, if not slightly odd glass which would be very nice except it was only half full for a €9 glass. Not sure if this was... More

We had dinner on a warm evening on the terrace. Service was up to standard. The square (place) is wonderful. This is the real Bordeaux. Mix of tourists and locals in the restaurant. The food is traditional, but still original. We can recommend the "cochon noir du pays basque", which reminds of pulled pork, but in much more refined and... More
