If you're looking for a place to go on a Friday or Saturday night then Bar Jean is the place for you. Super friendly owners and staff. Vast selection of tapas ar the bar plus a wide variety of wines from Spain and France. If you're looking for big dinner try the 1kg steak for 2. At €44 it's a... More

We walked in off the street and were lucky to get a table but it was squished right by the kitchen servery. We had paella which was good but not outstanding. The portion was huge and 3 servings between 4 would have been plenty.

The staff here were very friendly, welcoming and attentive. The food was to die for. I had the stuffed cod for starter and the camebert for main they were both amazing. My boyfriend had the calamari and the baby pig and again the food was delicious. It has a nice lively atmosphere, a great place to start a night out.

Place seemed to be extremely busy every night so we decided to give it a go , atmosphere and staff were great and whilst the food was OK it wasn't knockout like some of the similar places we'd visited close by.

This place is buzzing. Full of locals and recommend to us for good steak frites which they didn't have ironically. What they did have was great tapas, lamb chops to dream of ( burger was mediocre though) Really attentive staff and speedy service. It's closed on Tuesdays so everyone seems to go to Cafe du Commerce instead. Worth a trip

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel. It was only a few minute walk from Hotel Saint Julien. We came early evening to take some tapas. The atmosphere was bumping. We chose a table outside near the heat lamps. I went and picked out some tapas from the bar. The tapas were mediocre. I sense they had been... More

Always packed with crowds spilling out into the street and a large number of waiters buzzing about the place. Good food at good prices, lots of locals and French tourists when we were there. Worth a visit.

I was thoroughly impressed by the staff in this restaurant - they are super busy and work at such speed I am surprised they don't cause accidents. They are a pleasure to watch and despite constantly running around they impressed me. I was also impressed by the delicious food. I would recommend everyone try this place at least once even...
