We happened upon this place as it was busy with locals stopping for a cafe or drink. We had a wine and beer. The tables were clean and the service prompt. Smoking is common as it is next to a tabac shop and well, it's France! One waiter spoke a little English and the other none. We did not notice... More

Went on a cold day, great to get warmed up. The only place open on Sunday at 15:30....crowded and lively, typical bar food . Good drinks.

Do not eat there ! As a quick stop for a biere or a glass of wine the place is perfect as it is right in the middle of Versailles, with a nice terrasse which gets quite a lot of sun. However the staff are uninteressed, rather bored and unwelcoming. The food as nothing of the gourmet or sophisticated look... More

We visited this place after having spent a whole day touring the chateau de versailles. We ordered a steak and 2 appetizers. The steak was too dry. The service was too slow. One of the appetizers ordered did not even make it to the table. The place looks old and does not very clean. Maybe it's a good place to... More

I don't know what people expect, it's a decent bistro. Lamb shank, a rib eye and a decent bottle of wine for less than £50? Friendly waiter, good food, nice wine, a great way to pass an hour or so.

Oh what do I know, I'm just an American tourist, but Le Chat Qui Prise was just fine. We had beers, burgers, and ice cream. All perfectly competent. We came here after touring the palace and we were exhausted. This place filled the bill. The service is not servile, but we encountered no negative attitude and it was quite pleasant.... More

Le chat qui prise café is very close to the hotel where we stayed (Hotel du Cheval Rouge), so it was a very convenient spot for dinner. Dinner and wine were excellent, very tasty. For dessert, we had the "assortment of little desserts," which was an excellent sampler of the desserts that they offered. After eating a large dinner, the... More

We enjoyed our dinner in the relaxed atmosphere of Le chat qui prise. The service was excellent. Tables were a little close together but it wasn't uncomfortable.

We ended up here by accident so i couldnt check TA upfront but reading all the reviews here afterwards very much surprised me. First, this place looks like a bar, so expect the kind of food you can get in a bar. But there must be someone in the kitchen who knows what he or she is doing. We had... More
