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.

Our waitress delivered water and wine but did not pour either. Delivered food but never returned for anything else. Cannot recommend even though the food was good.

I went there with my girlfriend after visiting the Versailles Palace. We could eat outside, and I have to say that the atmosphere was very pleasant (the very good weather was probably part of it). The waitresses were very friendly and the food was fantastic. Prices were ok and quantity were big. I was even surprised with the wine list... More
