The service at this place was wonderful. Our waitress spoke English and seem to really enjoy her job and helping people. They have a buffet set up and you can choose two courses for €21 or three courses for €26. They also had a breakfast station with eggs, ham, mushrooms, potatoes, quiche, croissants, crepes, etc for an additional €5. This... More

On your way to Monument Cafe, you will pass dozens of restaurants that will tempt your palate but it is worth the extra walk to keep going! This cafe offered a buffet of great choices! We were able to choose a mini crockpot with a savory dish and 3 little glasses of sides for lunch at a reasonable price! We... More

If you are visiting Versailles then you need to try this place. The "all you can eat" price may scare you away but you don't need that much food! (Talking to you fellow North Americans). My wife, daughter and I ate there for under 30 Eur. The quiche is amazing, the lamb entrée was delicious, and the desserts were were... More

Because there was a coupon in our Parispass, my friends and I decided to take an early train to Versailles and have a Sunday brunch before we headed out to visit Versailles. Reservations definitely recommended! It fills up fast! But we were really early, so it was ok. Pancakes made from scratch, excellent bacon, scrambled eggs, crispy baguettes and other... More

After being recommended this cafe as served gluten free menu, I was disappointed in the quality of food. The starters were very well presented and tasted good but the main courses were a let down. Tried them all as is a buffet style cafe and didn't enjoy any of it. Would not recommend. I passed a lot of other restaurants... More

After hours of queues at Versilles The Monument was a very refreshing recharge close to the palace. A really delicious, tasty buffet styled service that was just what we needed and wanted.

This is a buffet experience that you will not find anywhere else. Food is purchased or grown locally. It is excellent and offers a variety of starters usually two entrees and a variety of sweets. Nice clean restaurant close to the Versailles Palace located in the beautiful small town of Versailles. Go and try it you won't be disappointed.
