Great little restaurant. Very small and cozy. The grilled chicken kebabs were tasty. Steak was a good size and cooked to perfection. Wine was good too.

The starter (foie gras) and dessert (cheesecake) were delicious. I was a tad disappointed by the main course (beef brochette) as the meat was very tough to chew. The place was small and pa ked, but cosy and comfortable. Friendly service.

Watch the world go by as you dine in Chez Lazare. Look up and admire the balconies. Look down and enjoy the food. The view of the Chateau is around the corner. The food good - I enjoyed the sea-bass. Too much salad and dressing on cheese course but maybe that's just me. Very pleasant waitress. We dined there last... More

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!
