We had our Christmas party on Friday night for 70 staff and what a great night was had by all. The dinner also included the show Allo Allo

We traveled to Tauranga just so we could try out this restaurant as French cuisine is a favorite of ours. It was well worth the weekend away. Not only is the food great but the ambiance is too. We had scallops as starter and two of us had beef bourguignon, very tasty and for myself I had Duck leg. This... More

For once a real French Café. Billed as being rich in French flavour and ambience, capturing the heart of France in its cuisine. The eclectic style greets you the moment you enter and you hope it can back it up with the food. Well it does and more so. This can be a hard place to get into and we... More

We dined here for the first time last Saturday night. The food was delicious, we had Bouillabaisse $34.50 and Pork Belly $29.50 with mixed vegetables to share. Both meals were beautifully presented and the flavours were delicious. The service was good and the host was delightful, wonderful sense of humour and very entertaining. Made for a most enjoyable evening. We... More

Its been 10 months since we visited Cafe Versaille but once again we had a wonderful time. It is difficult to choose from the menu because there are so many things to choose from. My favourite by far is the duck a l'orange, I find it hard to have a three course meal so I usually have a main and... More

We found this Restaurant only Average. First of all it was not BYO. First impressions it was a a bit if a shambles. There was a nice range if entrées. The snails were delicious. The garlic bread was yum. (As it should be) The terrine was good but the mains let the meal down. The eye fillet was over done... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times over the years. Our last two visits were progressively disapointing. The serving staff are getting wierder, the place is getting shabbier and it is an expensive bill. Pseudo French accents unwanted attention and in one case where the male waiter obviously fancied our daughter's boyfriend mean that we will be dining... More

This was my second visit to Café Versailles and like my first visit I came away thoroughly impressed with the atmosphere, staff and food. The service was exceptional with menu and wine choices clearly explained. The Beef Burgundy was perfect, the only complaint was that there was not more of it. Servings are a good size but you just wanted... More

The boeuf bourguinon was magnificent, and they have Chateau Neuf du Pape on the menu, so we enjoyed that both times. The staff are good, and the owner a delightful character. A 'must go to' for a beautiful French-styled meal.
