Loved the concept, food very tasty fresh French cuisine. If hungry go for 'all you can eat' option. Good price point. doesn't feel too 'touristy'

Buffet style concept with 2 different models, expensive if you wanted all possibilities and, if not, small portions and not very kid friendly, but food was ok to good

Had a visit of Versailles Palace with tour company. The guide took us here for lunch and it was a pleasant surprise. It has a buffet with variety of appetizers and entrees and desserts in small portions. Had an excellent pork rib cooked with mushrooms and potatoes in a small individual pots. Overall excellent tasty foods in a casual cafe... More

We decided to try here based on reviews on trip advisor. Booked online which worked well. Our two children enjoyed the buffet lunch and allowed is to sample different foods. My husband had snails! Service was good and accommodating, plus the bonus of buying chateau tickets here saved on queuing later in the afternoon.

If you're in the area like we were to visit the palace and gardens there are some really good places to eat. We arrived in Versailles shortly after 12 so decided we would get some lunch first. One of our travel companions had already researched the best places to eat in this area so it wasn't hard to find the... More

We found this place with the Paris Pass book and it did not disappoint! Their lunch menu was delicious and the atmosphere was calm and welcoming. Great place to get something to eat and enjoy the city of Versailles! (Also the 20% off from the Paris Pass was an added bonus!)

Our student group, disappointed at missing the Palace of Versailles - one-day strike - was delighted with our experience here at the Monument Cafe. With demonstrations and instructions, they deboned and diced fish for a ceviche, prepared magret de canard with a sweet potato puree, and prepared vanilla bean chantilly and strawberries. We then got to eat what they made,... More

Perfect way to enjoy the smaller city of Versaillles, and being very tired from visiting the monument, the gardens, the houses and country palaces walk walk walk. Here is total relaxation. Local food, grown locally for the most part. The chicken and the fish bowls extremely satisfying to the palate. Return? A must. Recommend? An absolute.

This was recommended for our group and we obliged after reading positive reviews. The food was great and the service is also good. There are many selections in small bowls but you can take unlimited number of bowls. The hotpot dishes of chicken and fish are both tasty and we especially rave about the unlimited escargot. It was a feast... More
