Food here was quite good, but really needed more care and detail. Ravioli starter ok, but a little bland. Fish main good, but vegetable accompaniment terribly bland - poorly seasoned, few herbs. Poor. Vegetable main was this (courgette/mushroom/carrot/tomato) side dish with melted cheese on top...poor effort. Deserts average, Cognac ordered was forgotten. Guitar, singer in street was outstandingly good and... More

Cosy restaurant, simple well cooked food. There's a bbq in the corner where you can watch your food being cooked. Great food, reasonably priced and plenty of it too. The salad gourmand is superb. The table wine is ok, quite cheap but there's a good selection. Dessert is a must. The fixed price menu is a great idea. Gets quite... More

After spending the day at Versailles we were looking for an easy dinner - not too posh. Chez Lazare is just perfect. You better reserve a table as it fills up quickly. The food is very nice especially the grilled fish and meat. They are not such experts on veggies but the French fries are excellent. Together with a nice... More

Don't go here expecting fine dining... But do go for tasty food, generous portions and a pleasant environment, both inside and out. Staff are helpful, if not overly friendly (come on, this is France! So the grumpy look is compulsory). But it's a charming place. A huge steak, grilled virtually in front of you, salad and fresh French fries went... More

Cozy place with a nice terrace, great food, good value. "Live" grill. Friendly waiters. Try the Terrine Foi Gras, it was heavenly!

The food is ok, but expensive for what you get. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, but some of the waitresses were a little over zealous clearing stuff from the table that we hadn't finished with. Also, a little po-faced. We ordered a good white wine and it was warm when it arrived. Make sure you send it back if... More

My husband and I had dinner in Chez Lazare in mid-May. I tried to book but they don’t take bookings for the weekend so we went early (7.00pm) so as not to queue. We sat near the grill in this rustic style restaurant where we could see the meats being cooked. The heat didn’t affect us. We had foie gras... More

We chose Chez Lazare for lunch after visiting the Palace of Versailles. They have an open grill and specialise in meat and seafood. My husband had a steak - which was delicious, and I had the Mussels - which arrived in the traditional Moules pot. There must have been about 3 dozen mussels! Delicious but even between both of us...

Chose this from one of many restaurants on the same street. They offer set price meals - starter + main, main + dessert, starter + dessert or all three. Prices vary from about €20-28. Portions were pretty good. Went for a starter and then the moules marinieres as a main and that was more than enough. Service was ok, nothing... More

After having been on the road the whole day we arrived at about 20:00 at the place after we had booked a table trough our landlord. The service was fast the food was easy and nice, the ambiente is friendly and we only had french people around us, which we enjoyed. The dessert was nice.
