“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

The food is horrible, my colleagues hamburger bun was so soggy is fell apart, the pasta sauce was inedible and the meat badly cooked. We asked for sauces and salt, which arrived as we were finishing. The service was surly, and the glasses were dirty (mine had a large stain on it)
It is clearly a tourist joint with no interest in providing a quality experience as they know no one will ever come back.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stopped here after visiting Chateau Versailles. The restaurant was crowded with locals, many business people. We each had salads so I cannot comment on the entire menu. The salads were fantastic...the best we had in Paris. They were huge, ingredients were fresh and they looked as good as they tasted. Our waiter spoke English and service was excellent. Cost, 11,80e each. We could have shared one!

“More beers than others only order pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Helios Pub has a massive outdoor seating area along the main road that leads to the Chateau. normally I avoid places like this knowing full well you pay for the view (it is not that great of a view). I walked by here a few times on the way to/from Versailles Chantiers. They had a few beers on tap, and more in bottles which is more than I can say for anywhere else that i found in Versailles, but the carbonara pasta was bland, and the salad with "shrimp" was just sad - drenched in some bottled thousand island. The bread was the highlight - clearly it had been cooked in the pizza oven and was actually really good. This was actually the worst meal I had in in Versailles and i was there for a month

“Beware!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in for lunch with my wife and two teenaged daughters this afternoon. Food was fine and everything was ok until my 16 year old was molested by one of the employees when she was coming out of the bathroom. After a confrontation with the employee and the manager/proprietor the police were called and the employee was taken off by the police. I assume he will be terminated. It also would have been a nice gesture for the manager/proprietor to apologize to us afterwards, he did not. Dine at your own risk.

“Good food and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Had a great meal here the other evening while in Versaille. Good value food, reasonable rates, lots of choice and you can eat inside in the cosy restaurant or out on the terrace. The service was a bit on the slow side but when you are sitting watching the firework display over the Chateau, who cares?!
