After a fabulous tour of the Palace of Versailles it was time for a rest and to refuel. The perfect setting was the Grand Canal. The restaurant was charming. The service and the food was to say the least terrible. We had ordered Chicken Club sandwiches and fries. We received cold fries and ham sandwiches. We asked the waitress for the correct order. She opened our sandwiches to confirm our misorder, took it away and brought back the same order. We refused it and she took it away with disgust. When our correct order was delivered, the bread was soggy and there was barely any chicken. We paid our bill and left. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We came here after walking through the gardens. We loved sitting inside. It was chilly, but they have space heaters to warm you up. We didn't have a full meal here, just apps and a drink. It wasn't super crowded because of the weather. Service was not a problem at all.

Food was substandard. I had spaghetti bolognese and my boyfriend had an omelette. Food was pretty bland. The service was awful. We asked our waiter for tap water and the waiter came out with still water in a glass bottle and insisted that we purchase that instead. We thought that perhaps he misunderstood us so we pointed to the man in the nearby table who had tap water on his table. The waiter then said "oh, but he is not eating a meal here, so our policy is that he can have tap water. He is just reading his newspaper and drinking tea. Since you are dining here, you must pay for still water". What sort of reasoning is that? Their drinks are overpriced (especially water), food is priced ok. It's only when we told the waiter that we wanted to speak to the manager did he huff and puff, recap the still water and bring us some tap water. Don't go there unless you are dying of starvation. You will get snooty service and terrible food. On the plus side, if you do follow their rules (i.e. order still water with food), you'll get good service. The food comes out quite quickly... "microwaveable food" quickly.

Looks promising from the outside however service was very poor and the food was very very average. I tried to pay with my card twice, and the waiter said it didn't go through, so we paid with cash. However when looking at my bank statement, I had been charged on my card, so we paid twice ! Not happy.

We went as a group of twelve as part of a guided visit to Versailles. A pre arranged meal which sounded as though it was going to be delicious. Not so! Magret de canard with a huge salad, was OK but the Daurade was vastly overcooked and dry!! Desserts were quite nice but not outstanding. Such a shame, as a group we were francophile, mostly fairly capable in the French language but rather disappointed in a lacklustre retaurant.
