The owner was nice, the help was not very helpful, the food was less than good (except for the escargot, it was fabulous), and frankly it was all overpriced.

Definitely a 13-in-a-dozen establishment. Looking at the manager, he is in it for the money without any culinary ambitions whatsoever.

The food is not bad, but sauces and side dishes are all pre-prepared, but the suggestions du jour are not bad (at least not at the beginning of the service)

The place looks better than most in the area, but for a good culinary experience look elsewhere.

Nice restaurant between the two stations of Versailles (Rive Gauche and Chantiers). The Menu is mixed: Some French classics (foie gras, confit de canard, steak tartare) and some basics (steak, a dozen pizza's). Desserts are a bit of a disappointment; the crème brûlé came directly from the fridge. Prices are decent, service is okay, and the atmosphere is good. I went here with two friends on a friday night and the place was almost packed.

Disappointing service, some customers left in frustation, unacceptable waiting times.
In addition to a stressed waiter who was alone to look after 30 tables, the food was below average, unpalatable but cheap.
Massive let down. Cannot recommend to anyone.
Let us hope this was a one off, but we willnot be returning to check.
As some french customers were saying," nice of them to pocket the drop in VAT, (FYI from 19.6% to 5.5%), shame they did not invest in the cuisine or the waiting team."
2 croques monsieurs
1 pichet de vin
1 badoit
EUR 30 all inclusive

Waiter did his best but was set for failure.

Not worth it.
