Recently I visited the town of Versailles with a good friend of mine. Since she lives in Meudon, she had heard of the Monument Cafe, and was anxious to visit. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Julien, the owner of the cafe. He explained the way the food was arranged, and that it is freshly prepared every day.... More

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

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
