After an exhausting tour of the famed Palace of Versailles, it was a welcome change to wander in this modest locality and take in the village-like ambience. Feeling hungry, we saw this pub advertising an inexpensive menu. We were not disappointed as the decor was characterful with leather armchairs on the ground level where we had our table. The menu...

We stopped by the pub because it was a cold wet afternoon in Versailles. The staff were helpful and friendly but not pushy. We stayed on for dinner and found the food to be basic, but acceptable pub quality food.

After a visit to the palace it looked like the perfect place to have lunch. My wife went to enquire inside and was rudely ignored but I managed to get the attention of a guy cleaning the tables who allowed me to sit at the table I'd located. We sat for 15 minutes before deciding to find our own menus... More

Nothing special, but was close to our hotel. Ordered the goat's cheese pizza. It was basically a margherita pizza with way too much cheese and then on top 3 large circular slices of goat's cheese. This would have been ok had it been tomato base with just the goats cheese. Don't order this, it's a heart attack on a plate.... More

It's nothing special but does decent pub grub at times when other places don't and the manager is always friendly and welcoming. A good place if you are in a hurry or need a bite quite late. If you want fine dining or fancy French atmosphere then this is not for you. It's a pub, and it's a decent pub,... More

Our server, a young man, spoke excellent english. I asked where he was from and his reply was France. he just watched a lot of american television. WOW! So on to the meal. We stopped in only for entrees and wine, and enjoyed a fish soup and herring filets. No rush visit, and able to converse easily with our waiter.

If you are looking for high-end, exceptional food, this place is not it ... BUT, it is very good food in a very convenient location if you are going to/coming from a tour at Versailles. The atmosphere is cozy, the menu simple (pizzas, salads, wraps/sandwiches), and service quick. My husband and I split a pizza and a salad, had a... More

we chose to eat here because we were staying nearby and it was handy on a wet and windy evening, Nice atmosphere, staff were very efficient and the food turned out to be far better than described on the menu. Good selection of drinks. Seating outside on the Avenue de Paris looked as if it would be a nice place... More

Stopped here for lunch after a disappointing wait NOT to be served at a bar/cafe further along Ave de Paris. Pleasantly surprrsed yesterday with both the quality and the service as last year had a pub lunch here that was not at all memorable. We sat outside this time, My companion had the cheese salad which was very genererous. I... More

Stopped at Helios twice on our way back from the Palace. We made the executive decision not to eat as the food looked abysmal and decided to have a very overpriced Stella (25cl for over 4 euros!). We had to ask twice for the beers and asked three times for the bill. In the end we chucked the money on... More
