Fresh and delicious

We were part of a tour at the Palace of Versailles. My expectation of a lunch while on a tour was not very high, but we were delightfully surprised. It is set up buffet style and there was a large selection of cold and hot dishes. We are gluten fee and there were a lot of choices. Many... read more

Nice concept with lots of small dishes to choose from, most items tasted good but nothing was remarkable.

We stopped by for lunch during our recent trip to Versailles. They offer various pricing level. For those who don't need the "all you can eat" options, you can choose one plate plus 5 appetizers or desserts for 15 euros. To get there, it is only slightly off the path between the train station and Versailles. The people there were... More

First of all, we were greeted by a wonderful lady named Lucille who was very helpful in explaining the food details and pricing to us. It saved us a lot of time to figure out the stuff otherwise. It took us a while to find the restaurant because it is one street over from the main drag where the other... More

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
