    Le Bassin de Neptune: Dish of the day

    by Nemorino Written Mar 9, 2014

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By the time I finally found my way out of the palace and gardens (by way of the exit called ‘Grille du Dragon’) it was the middle of the afternoon and I was quite hungry, so I went looking for someplace to have a very late lunch. After passing by a couple of grubby-looking snack bars I happened upon this establishment on the Rue des Réservoirs. It was just what I was looking for – a typical French brasserie with a plat du jour (Dish of the Day or Today’s Special) that was still available long after the normal hours for lunchtime.

    The plat du jour in this case was beef Bourguignon, which (as I should point out for my fellow non-gourmets) is simply a fancy name for beef stew. This is no doubt a prime example of what the British would endearingly call ‘pub grub’, but on a chilly wet afternoon in February it really hit the spot and was exactly what I needed.

    The name of this pub, Le Bassin de Neptune, alludes to the fact that it is very close to the reservoir or pond of the same name in the palace gardens of Versailles.

    Address: 30 rue des Réservoirs – 78000 Versailles
    Directions: Near the corner of rue de la Pariosse.
    Location on Google Maps.
    Phone: 01 30 21 76 45

    le Relais de Poste: a lunch between two stations

    by gwened Written Dec 8, 2013

    This is a real old post office relay station and over time it has becomes a cafe resto, right between the rive gauche station and on your way to chantiers station for trains in Versailles today
    no webpage give you the resto page I write here in French.

    This was my lunch hangout when in the city, I lived here but when out on business I used to go around and have lunch with the gang from work or business visitors here. Very nice place, and very affordable prices ,the local scoop.

    ambiance is live and fast, friendly service, and fresh menu of the day. It is walking distance to the trains stations rive gauche and chantiers and central to shopping in Versailles, bus terminal Europe is near too.

    Favorite Dish: over the years for lunch I stuck with the menu of the day ,changes every day. The food was always well made, prompt service, and good prices.

    Sister's Cafe: an American in Versailles

    by gwened Updated Nov 18, 2013

    Its a Landmark in Versailles this American style resto. the biggest best burgers in town. And right along the rue des réservoirs to the castle.

    You will feel like in the United States, the decoration is on banquets of reddish leather, the walls yellow with mythical plaques of cars that reminds you of the bars from the 1950's

    And it seems to me it has been there since, long time in the city,and a nice family stop, at night a bit branché, fashionable place to be.

    Favorite Dish: burgers burgers burgers

    Angelina's: Outpost of Paris' chocolate heaven

    by Dabs Updated Jun 13, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was so looking forward to treating my niece to Angelina's while in Paris and then learned that there was a location at Versailles-perfect, right? Not exactly, the Angelina's in the palace had very little seating so we had to have our hot chocolate while standing at a table. The location in the gardens near the Petit Trianon has some outdoor seating with some umbrellas for shade so this is a better option if you have headed towards that area.

    Favorite Dish: And then there is the hot chocolate African, at the location in Paris, they give you some sweet whipping cream to mix in with it, not so here. My niece crinkled her nose and I knew after tasting it that it would be too bitter for her. They wouldn't allow me to reenter the palace with hot chocolate so I had to waste hers as I couldn't possibly drink two in such a short period of time. I thought the garden location would have a larger menu but it didn't, the hot chocolate still came without the sweet whipping cream although I did try unsuccessfully to ask for it. We also ordered their specialty dessert, the Mont Blanc to share. It's extremely rich, not to mention a bit pricey, the Mont Blanc is a chestnut cream exterior, inside is cream and meringue.

    Various: Palace options

    by Dabs Updated Jun 13, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several places in the Palace Gardens to get something to eat but we opted to stop by a local grocery store before we got to the palace and have a picnic lunch while sitting under the trees along the Grand Canal. From the train station if you head past the turn for the Palace and keep on the same side of the street, there is a Monoprix which has a grocery store in it. Buy a baguette, some meat or cheese and whatever else you'd like to eat for lunch and have a picnic on the grounds.

    the one for Versailles is at
    http://www.bistrotduboucher.fr/content/restaurant-31-bistrot-du-boucher-versailles-78000.htm

    the deco is ancient France, very nicely done, cozy ,like been at home. And of course the location tells it all looking at the marché de Notre Dame !!!

    Favorite Dish: menus fixed from 17€ is an excellent value., a good chunk of beef with great red wine at reasonable price. All inclusive price entrée, plat principal, cheeses or desserts, coffee,red wine of 23cl or water all for 30.90€

    you can go from 19€ for an even great deal for families, all fresh good beef products.

    Au Chien qui Fume: wonderful ambiance guarantee

    by gwened Written Mar 24, 2013

    ambiance guarantee, like been in Versailles oh soots we are lol!!! sitting in a nice area of Versailles,my Notre Dame, you wont be disappointed here, can rival any of Paris.

    The story is been here since 1839. The name comes from its founder who use to give his pipe to his dog while taken an order !!! This was perpetuated by painter George Janier who painted the walls with a gallery of dogs with weird ressemblage. They have faces of the famous and one thing in common they all smoke from Chirac,Edith Cresson, Rocard ,Brigitte Bardot or even the Pope !

    Favorite Dish: I go for the formules, better price and always fresh, the 30€ is fine.
    terrine de chien qui fume with mix of pork and duck meats is great, so is the main plats like the entrecôtes grillée. the brownies maison are a great dessert.

    Le boeuf à la Mode: Prime and excellent à la Mode

    by gwened Updated Mar 24, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    sublime in a very refine decor, try the second floor or 1étage in France. You will head back to the old days of wonderful cuts of beef done masterfully by the team. My family's favorite, so many visits,so natural trying to find a photo,and cant. Anyway I am not a fan of taking resto or food photos. The decoration is from the 1930's

    the service is very nice refine, French tops; you are served in the traditional way, the one even here in France is facing out;,not at this restaurant. All is to perfection from napkins to utensils to the food presentation. We know my son studies to be a chef here in France.

    Enjoy the link,and enjoy Versailles, my Versailles.

    Favorite Dish: entrecôte de boeuf, Faux filet de boeuf, cocotte rognons de veau (veal kidneys in a pot),and parmentier de lapin, all delicious, in fact you wont go wrong

    we had last boeuf bourguignon avec spaghettis, poire au chocolat,coffee,and apero porto rouge,and house red wine and all wonderful again.

    by gwened Written Nov 20, 2012

    its an independant chain not group together but each own separately, it is a standard pole bearer of the Alsace cuisine and seafood. One of my favorite here,and passing by it again took the advantage of this time taking pictures lol:: I used to lived here for almost 10 years.
    http://www.taverne-maitre-kanter.fr/versailles

    The service is fast and friendly, great food from choucroute to fish, seafood and meat cuts, the ambiance is very traditional French, and the decoration is great belle epoque. It is just facing the castle on the side with good views of it. It has a terrace and AC in summers. A try while in town is a must.

    Favorite Dish: choucroute paysanne and all the choucroutes, but also great cuts of beef,and seafood . They have scrumpious desserts with large portion,and great wine cellar. We had a Burgundy red Joseph Drouhin

    Au Chien qui fume: French and Enjoyable Food

    by gordonilla Updated Feb 20, 2012

    A small group of my colleagues and I, only 17 of us, had dinner here. We had a special menu and it was very enjoyable. Staff were friendly and the food was good. I think the normal menu is better and more extensive than we had on our menu.

    The interior is quite unusual - the smoking dog tag is quite interesting, the art work on the walls is an array of sketches and paintings of different dogs smoking. The longer you look at them, the more you realise there is something strange about them - they are in fact caricatures of famous international personalities in the style of a smoking dog. Look out for Prince Charles, Jacques Chirac, George Bush senior and many others.

    Favorite Dish: I have only been there once, so can't really say what my favourite dish is - I can say that on my visit I had cauliflower gazpacho, charolais beef with souffle potatoes and a chocolate fondue for dessert. The coffee was good.
