We came here during the Ryder Cup weekend and the place was full. With two people serving it became impossible to give adequate service. Orders were forgotten and it was impossible to give personal attention like to ask ‘did it taste good?’ But, we still...More

I really enjoyed the experience at this restaurant. The dishes are delicious, well prepared and very well presented. Their menu is rich in seafood (their specialty), Portuguese and Brazilian dishes, so you can only be positively surprised with the variety of tastes you can find...More

By pure chance I booked a meal on a fado evening with two fantastic singers and guitarist. Excellent Portuguese meal in a beautiful restaurant and good staff. Great way to spend our last evening in Versailles.

With its cozy, intimate atmosphere, authentic feel and gorgeous, rich cuisine, the Saudade is just perfect for that romantic tête à tête. The dishes are attractively plated and the fish was perfectly cooked, the meat was tender, falling off the bone and the desserts were...More

They don't have menus in English and the staff is not able to translate well (although they do try.) Food was okay but my steak was VERY fatty. Wish we would've skipped dessert, it was not very good. Very expensive and slow. We were there...More

Fairly authentic Portuguese restaurant. Very nice ambiance and very busy mid-week. The restaurant is very narrow and gets pretty energetic (borderline loud). Not ideal for more than 4, (we had 5) as they have to cobble together tables. Food was very good, although two of...More

Had lunch after touring Versailles. Definitely a restaurant that likes serving fish and animals! I had the grilled tuna with bean puree. Fish was done very well. My wife had the cod, also very delicious. Staff was excellent. Felt bad as we did not take...More

Service was very kind, place is beautiful, we ate very very good. There is not much choice, menu is short, they change it often, but is worth it due the quality you get!

I have never noticed any specific vegetarian menu since I am a customer of the Saudade (circa 2 years).
