There were three of us, stopping in for lunch at Le Saint Julien. What a great find. The restaurant is located in a quaint area at the end of a side street right near the Chateau Versailles. A little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and informed immediately about the... More

No question. This is a very nice restaurant with good food and a nice ambience. However, reading some of the reviews we thought this would be an extraordinary find. It is very close to the entrance of the Chateau and it's fun finding it. The waiters were obviously having a little bit of a fight, but they didn't let it... More

Wow. This was a true find right next to the Versailles palace. The food is really good and you will feel as if you are taken back into the time of the original inhabitants of the palace, before the revolution. The selection is good with a wide range of French wines on offer. Try the ravioli with the French twist... More

If we hadn't looked on TripAdvisor, we surely wouldn't have found this place. Although just a few hundred meters away from le Chateau de Versailles, Le Saint Julien is not located in a mainstream place. Nevertheless, when you go there, you will be pleasantly surprised. The ambiance creates an authentic French vibe. And the food and wine was absolutely fab!... More

Classic french, impeccably prepared and presented - my husband, myself and our seventeen old daughter booked lunch on 14th September after reading previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We had aperitifs and excellent glasses of wine, marvellous main courses and pudding (try the apple crumble very different way of serving - superb) and all for 118Euros. Really it was... More

If you're looking for good French cuisine in a pretty setting right next to the palace, this is the place to go. The menu has very little choice which is usually a sign for good quality and home cooked food rather than the supermarket bought stuff that so many restaurants serve these days. Once the plates arrived, the good impression... More

Food is delicious Service is both friendly and efficient Wine list is affordable (pick up Bordeaux, preferably saint Julien it goes w/o saying it) to sum up : Perfect place to enjoy a nice dinner at a walking distance from the castle you are coming from, likewise regarding Trianon Palace Hotel where you probably stay.

Met my wife there for a Thursday lunch. Each had a starter and main and we loved everything. Nice service and we were in and out in 1 hour and 45 euros. I recommend anyone try it.

It's a mix of traditional French food with some surprising offerings. I had a steak for a main but i began with a foie gras burger and both were gorgeous. Be warned though my tiramisu dessert was huge! The atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed and the staff were easily accommodating of our poor french. Recommended.

We were a group of 12 who had a pre-arranged meal which was chosen by ? Each was was beautiful but very rich, raviole de langoustine followed by pintade with spinach and foie gras in a cream sauce then sorbet. The guinea fowl was beautifully cooked and flavoured. The sorbets were superb. BUT we ate in the vaulted cellar and... More
