Raining cats and dogs so decided a spot of lunch was in order. We could not have chosen a better restaurant. Buzzy, full of atmosphere, great staff and a fabulous paella washed down with a delicious bottle of rose. Loved it!

Went for tapas a Sunday night. It was friendly, full of people with a very good atmosphere. The tapas were simple and good and the wine delicious. Very nice place to stop by for tapas at night !

Nice place for drinks but not impressed of the food for this price. 16 EUR for a watery tartar destroyed with soy and mushy, slimey frice. A bottle of fairly good rosé for 20 EUR is nice but not a place for good food.

The service is arrogant and unfriendly. The waiter slammed the bottle of water on the table that we thought it would break. With this he shouted something that sounded like duh. We don't know what we did to be treated like this. We can just...More

We visited Bar Jean last year on the evening of our engagement. There was a real hustle and bustle around the restaurant and we had to wait about half an hour to be seated- this gave us the opportunity to have some drinks and soak...More
