    (Translated by Google) Magnificent place! The meal was very good, from starter to dessert. The service was impeccable from start to finish. However, we observed people expressing their dissatisfaction with waiting times of only a few minutes or proximity deemed too close with other guests... A sincere tribute to the staff for their patience and professionalism.

    Magnifique lieu ! Le repas était très bon, de l'entrée au dessert. Le service était impeccable du début à la fin. Pourtant, nous avons observé des personnes exprimer leur mécontentement pour des délais d'attente de quelques minutes seulement ou des proximités jugées trop étroites avec d'autres convives... Un sincère hommage au personnel pour leur patience et leur professionnalisme.

    The chicken breast was passable, the scallop risotto was delicious. The dessert Rum baba was particularly delicious and has a rich texture. Highly recommend. Fresh fruit sorbet was disappointing. Bread was good with olive oil and vinegar. Very professional service. Nice and smart staff

    We visited here for dinner while staying near the palace and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, it was an amazing dinner with friendly and knowledgeable staff and some of the most delicious food in Versailles. The restaurant has affordable food in a luxury atmosphere so I highly recommend eating here at least once.
