Visited this restaurant after hearing great reviews from Colleagues but I was disappointed with the main course , which was overcooked Duck with a salad. Starter was ok , The service was good and it has good atmosphere , but overall about average. I would probably try a different restaurant next time I travel here.

My wife and I ate here on the last evening of our visit to Versailles. Oh how we wish we had known about this bistrot before! We were given a really warm welcome by Nolan, who hails from Brittany and has Celtic connections, hence the Irish name. We were not rushed at all as we looked the menu. My wife... More

Love love love this place. Went here on recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. If you are in Versailles make sure to add Le Bistro du Boucher to your must visit places.

Ate here last night. A great location, with tables on the pavements at the marketplace. There are several waiters, very friendly and service very quick. The Pate and carpaccio starters were both delicious, but the star was the steak which was cooked perfectly. A lovely end note to the meal with floating islands of soft meringue and a panda cotta....

We wanted something special for our first night in Versailles, however, it being a Sunday, not many places were open so we settled on this place. Seating outside was lovely as the place was crowded. Service and staff were attentive and courteous and spoke English. Our starters of Escargot and bone marrow were great. The Escargot came in a great... More

Lovely experience sitting on the terrace underneath umbrellas. A welcome drink, a kir, was served immediately after we sat down. The staff was friendly and the food good; I had the entrecôte which the chef cooked to perfection. Not an easy feat, as I prefer my meat on the well done side, without being overdone, The French generally prefer less... More

A thoroughly enjoyable meal plus wine, with lovely service to match. Could not fault this restaurant - by the way, the cheese course is amazing.... do leave room for it! We'll probably return here even on a break to Paris without visiting the Chateau.

Good food served quick. Steak nicely done and lovely sauce. Highly recommended for a quick dinner. Choice of wine ok and lots of half bottles for single diner.

Boy, were we ever disappointed. After reading the reviews, which we now think were extremely misleading, we thoroughly regretted coming. The dining experience was below par, the food, although large-portioned, was not the quality expected for a tourist town. Steak was burnt, sauces were thick and bland, foie gras was shaped like a tin of cat food on breakfast toast... More
