On a recent trip to Tauranga we took our friends to our favourite local restaurant expecting great food and a great night out. We were not disappointed and we all loved the whole dining experience there. Our party was made up of four adults and a nine year old boy and we were well looked after by the staff who... More

I made the mistake of reading the (very few) negative reviews for this restaurant, and my recommendation... ignore them. This is a great little cafe with lots of character and an effusive French owner who is guaranteed to amuse and entertain. The food is excellent as well especially the scallops that should not be missed. Thank you for a great... More

My Family were invited to join a couple of friends to eat at Café Versailles in January 2017. The restaurant has a welcome and life of its own with really nice people cooking and running the place. The staff showed a very nice balance of good humored welcoming hospitality, that was complimentary to the visit rather than intruding. I thought... More

We went to Versailles with no expectations and left with the highest praise ever. From the garlic bread, the duck leg with orange liqueur sauce, the beef eye fillet, crepe suzette and the salted caramel crepe - all beautiful to the eye and amazing to the taste. We started with a french pinot gris (very, very nice) and finished with... More

There was not a spare seat and yet they served us quickly and we were not rushed at all. The drinks and food came within 15 minutes and was soooooo delicious we... More

We ordered the salmon main dish, Josephine's soup and snails. The soup is delicious as are the snails! The salmon was good also. The kitchen closes quite early so get in before 9.30pm! The waitress's service was excellent and she was very attentive.

French classics executed well. Warm and friendly atmosphere made for a special evening. Maurice's charm and personality fills the room pairing well with his dishes. A great place for a gathering of family or friends.

From the moment we arrived we experienced a personal greeting from the cast of the show - Allo Allo, outstanding service and a hilarious show - performed by a very talented group of local actors - Prime Suspects. For this part of the package the value for money was right up there. Unfortunately Café Versailles did not have a good... More
