I came to this restaurant based on the reviews and on the "TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016". However, this can mislead the visitor. __Good things: the owner is very nice and lovely lady; the burger is very tasty and thick, served with LOTS of fries (I mean it); nice decoration; you can book a table and get 20% discount with...

It's easy to miss this restaurant, as it's away from the town centre. But the food we had there was really very good - interesting, well cooked and presented. Service was friendly. Recommended.

My hubby and I found this place from local map after a long day of walking around Place of Versailles. What a great experience! We enjoyed the hospitality & good quality of tea & dessert, at very reasonable price. The shop is cozy and well decorated, and we all agree that the desert is the best we enjoyed in Paris... More

The waitress was pleasant, not overly friendly but nice. The food was disappointing and hit and miss. My mushroom velouté was delicious, my husbands prawn salad was a bit boring. My... More

The food from this restaurant was great, well prepared and very tasty. One of the best meals we've had in France and the waiter was very kind. I hope this review would bring more people to this excellent restaurant.

Visited with a few french colleagues on a rainy wednesday night. First impression was negative as the room seemed a bit cold and there was only one other table with people. However the ice was broken by a nice waitress, showing us the menu, as usual hand-written on a blackboard. My starter was Langoustine ravioli, then a "quasi de veau"... More

This restaurant is a little way off the main swim of things in Versailles and located in a district that at first you can't believe houses a restaurant of this quality. The proprietor/chef is a really good guy and deserves to succeed. The food is well cooked traditional French fare, no asian fusion influences in this place ! The menu... More

This was a restaurant that our concierge recommended when we said we were looking for a good local restaurant. We were not disappointed. The owner was very friendly. The food was outstanding and we truly enjoyed our meal. The prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend this local restaurant
