My husband and I truly enjoyed our lunch here. The server was so friendly and helpful and she spoke enough English to help us understand the buffet arrangement. The food was delicious and priced well. I absolutely recommend this place.

We loved monument cafe. The mini shot glass food concept is brilliant. It allows one to sample many different thingus and they are small enough to go back for a second one if you like it. If not then you feel better about not wasting anything you didn't enjoy (which were very few). I had seconds on half the starters... More

We had pizza and 1664 beer, the first meal, both were very good. The second meal we shared a big bowl of Mussels and an order of fries... More

It was OK but nothing special. It is also tricky to calculate the price of the food! The quiche was good though. This is an interesting operating model. Try it to see if it works for you.

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.
