Extremely delicious food! Super fresh and incredibly tasty. We found this restaurant passing by after visiting Versailles and before it rained. We had excellent service and I still dream of the food and dessert. It is small but just like anything go in Europe space...is at a prime, and very cozy and nice. If I get to go again to France soon I would love to eat there again. Simply amazing.More

We wanted to try the local cuisine but we were not accepted in this extremely unpleasant place. The server who stood in the entrance greeted us at the entrance in french but when he realized that we do not speak french he told in very...bad english that the restaurant is closed. The place had costumers inside so I assume that this rudeness from his part was pure xeniphobia.More

We chose this place based on other good reviews and we're so happy we did. Generous portions and really tasty food. Wine of the month was lovely too. If you’re looking for a causal, well priced French restaurant then this is the place for you....Would definitely go again.More

We arrived early evening and the restaurant was already bustling. Although we didn't have a reservation they made a plan. Service was quick, efficient and the language not a problem. The waiter suggested some specials and we were glad we took his suggestions as we...thoroughly enjoyed our meal.More

A good address close to the castle, in the historic borough of St Louis. We arrived in family on a Sunday (reservation highly recommended), the employees were able to offer right attention (8 people, a baby +a stroller) to spend a nice moment. Food is...typically French, very good. Attention to the fish baking. Meat was really appreciated. This is main thing, isn’t it ? I recommend.More

Great food and buzzy atmosphere on a Friday night. We shared a starter and dessert, with a main course each, and thought the food great value for the portion size. The majority of customers were French, not overseas tourists, which added to the vibe. We...couldn’t fault either food or service.More

Mostly meat and fish dishes Vegetarian dish and grilled salmon were excellent. Veggie dish lot of mozzarella cheese. Whole me!ted Camembert starter fantastic. Beer choice very limited. Wine choice, particularly red wine choice reasonable. Gets very busy after about 8pm. Tap water provided with wine...at no cost. Would certainly go back.More

Absolutely delicious lamb chops & escargot. The portions are very large. The restaurant is very crowded, but well worth a visit.

Many have noted what a great place this is. We came to visit Versailles for the second time, and found Chez Lazare <<en passant >>. Fabulous food and service at a very competitive price, at 4 minutes walk from the Cour d’Honneur of Versailles. Book...a table! Régalez-vous!More

This is a great restaurant with a great menu without being overwhelmed. They will grill pretty much any meat or fish you would like almost right next to you. All very fresh and fait maison (house made). You will not be disappointed as there is...something for everybody from hamburgers to lamb chops and sea scallops. Good selection of wines as well. Not to be missed as it's on a great little street filled with good restaurants not far from the chateau itself. Bon appetit!More

A lovely little restaurant with a very good choice of food and very generous portions. Friendly waiting staff. If we had have been staying longer in Versailles we would have gone back here.

This was a great little restaurant. We ate here on our way to the palace. This might have been the best meal of our vacation, except for 1 dish. Let me start with the good. We ordered foie gras and snails for our starters. I...have never had foie gras and this was so delicious! I thought it was a wonderful buttery treat. I wanted more!!! The snails were just okay. I don't need to eat those again. For the main course my husband ordered boef borgonion and it was very delicious. I ordered the "special" which was steamed mussels. When I opened the lid of the pot it smelled like dirty farm animals. The people at the table next to us even noticed the smell. I'm not one to complain, so I did eat them, but it wasn't very appetizing. So beware of the mussels, but the rest of the food was fabulous!More

Great value.great food. Great atmosphere. In the UK the chains Cote and Cafe Rouge are both trying to create the impression of a place like this. Only this one is real. Even the house wine is excellent.
