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.

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
