Description: Café Jean is an authentic Parisian brasserie! The dishes are fresh and "homemade". Close to the Vilette, Zénith, Philharmonie and the city of music, Café Jean promises a friendly atmosphere, family and transgenerational with a team of care from 8am to 2am. The menu has been designed for everyone from typical brewery dishes to vegetarian dishes. After a busy day of work, join the Café Jean benches for "happy hours" from 5 pm to 10 pm ", the pint of beer from € 4, the classic cocktails at € 5, the homemade fries cone at 1€ 50, homemade Tapas and cold cuts at € 5. Come and be happy!

The main advantage of Cafe Jean was being open during the "dead" hours between lunch and dinner, or for us, between museum and concert. I wish we had chosen one of the many multinational eateries in the area, but we opted for French... and got a very so-so meal and service.

I got a pork chop (juicy but extremely fatty) with mashed potatoes (which arrived cold and had to be sent back to be microwaved). My husband ordered a Burger Jean, instead of which they first brought him a steak frites by mistake - which probably could have been a better choice, because the burger was supposed to feature sautéed onions, pickles, and more, but had none of these things, only the soupy sauce which made the bun soggy. I would have mentioned the missing accompaniments to the staff, but my husband so dislikes any public disagreements that he asked me not to. We finished our meal quickly - nothing to savor or linger on.
