One of our best meals in France. Fresh seafood expertly prepared and presented. One of us had the sole meuniere, the best he'd ever had. The dorade was also wonderful. Not to mention excellent starters and deserts! The server was always attentive and very pleasant. For the quality level of the food, the prices are very reasonable. They have few tables so it is best to reserve. Highly recommended and we plan to return.

La Perle de Saint-Louis is a wonderful little restaurant in a delightful square, not far from Gare Versailles Gauche. The fish is superb, portions very good and an interesting wine list. The service is attentive. A real experience and highly recommended.

The food is pleasant along with the service. I should have brushed up on my French beforehand as I struggled to work out the seasonal dishes on the menu, but fortunately the waitress had a book with pictures on hand, so we were able to work out some of the dishes.

If you are nearby and want a leisurely lunch (heavy emphasis on leisurely that some might consider it too slow), it's worth a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.

This is a very charming little place, so you need to make reservations as they only have 6-8 tables inside, but probably a lot more in the summer outdoors. It's a little on the expensive side but absolutely delicious. Main course is not too large, which is great, but the desserts are quite big.

If anyone has difficulty, as I have done, in finding good food at a reasonably price in Versailles, then try La Perle de Saint-Louis. This charming and discrete little restaurant, overlooking one of the city's ancient squares, specialises in fish. The chef not only knows how to cook - he also knows how to present his very generous dishes. La Perle also offers a wine list that is weighted towards the food that it serves. Standards are high, and the grilled turbot really is as good as it looks. Another admirable element is the welcoming and attentive manner of the ladies who serve the tables. I have been there more than once, and I will definitely be eating there again.
