Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 9 October 2022

Food was mediocre at best. Matched by non-descript bottle of over-priced Haut Medoc. The cheeseburger came drowning in thousand island dressing. Frites were soggy. They charged a supplement of 1.5 Euros because I asked for the sauce for my very tough entrecote "on the side"....When I went to pay and started to comment on the dessert item that we didn't have, they almost preemptively apologized and produced a 10 Euro bill before I finished my sentence. More than suspicious. Despite the overall good rating this place receives, you can find much better nearby.More

Loved our dinner at Chez Jean! A huge group of us shared a long table and ordered from the pre-set menu. The food arrived quickly, was delicious, and the wait staff was so friendly and attentive. The crème brûlée was heavenly. The restaurant was in...a quaint square where we watched people pass by as we enjoyed our wine and savored the beauty of Bordeaux.More

We were looking for a place to have dinner in Bordeaux and found "Chez Jean". It is in the Parliament Square and offers a set menu, as well as a la carte. It has a nice, covered and heated outside space with nicely spaced tables,...and it was packed. We stayed and didn't regret it. Service was good, food was delicious and good value, and overall it was a great experience. I would recommendMore

There are so many choices in this area, but we were not disappointed with our meal here. The cuttlefish dish, I would definitely recommend, though the pork fillet was a bit tough. Overall a good experience.

Chez Jean is located on Place du Parlement, which is a great location for a restaurant that wants to cater to both locals and tourists. And while I can't/won't say anything terrible about the meal we had last night, I'm really not able to rave...about it either. We each ordered the 24.50 euro, three-course prix-fixe dinner. We started off with the fried brie cheese, which was great. The marinated red onions that came with the dish added a special zing to the taste. For me, it was the highlight of the meal. My wife and I also had the same entrée: pork loin on mashed potatoes with a mushroom sauce. Frankly, the pork was a bit too dry for our taste; but it wasn't bad enough for us to send back. The mashed potatoes tasted to me as if they'd been riced which I enjoyed. We also had side salads at an upcharge; the salads came with a mustard dijonnaise dressing, which was solid, if not exciting. Dessert, served as part of the prix-fixe combo, was okay as well. I had a tasty creme brulée; my wife had an apple cake. The total price was quite reasonable, and I'm sure it was not the specialty of the house. In addition we sat inside the restaurant; if we had to do it all over again, we'd sit outside and take in the ambiance of Place du Parlement, which was bustling with people across multiple restaurants, both when we arrived and when we left. In sum, Chez Jean was not a bad meal....not in the least....but I'm not sure it was memorable either.More

Bordeaux, city of warm people and nice dining. Our first visit here and this place was recommended by some friends. After our first dinner we immediately decided to come here again the day after. Exceptional friendly staff and delicious food for a more then reasonable...price. We tried the duck, the filet mignon, the fish and the signature burger..all equally good but the Burger Sud-Ouest remains in my memories as I am writing this review. Make sure to leave some room for an excellent dessert such as the mousse framboise. Attention for first time visitors, Dinner only starts at 19:30 and you might want to make a booking in advance (through their website) OR be there at 19:30 sharp. After 20:00, chances are slim you still find a table. Antwerp sends it warmest regards to ToTo and a big thank you towards the entire team of Chez Jean for the delicious meals and service.More

My wife and another couple stopped at Chez Jean for dinner. The food was splendid and, considering the quality, very well-priced. What most impressed me was the staff, however. We were outside, with every table filled two-deep in that crowded, French-cafe manner, and yet the...waiters and waitresses managed to be attentive, the food, water, wine, and bread arrived with perfect timing. It did not hurt that the evening was heart-breakingly beautiful. We had a lovely meal, and I would definitely recommend.More
