Great food and authentic atmosphere. Service overall was good. I had fish for main and this was a bit of a let down as was basically the cheap marinara mix from countdown in a nice sauce.. Starters and other main was excellent as were deserts

Don't be fooled by the modest exterior and interior of this restaurant. It is "fine dining" in Tauranga. For starters my husband had the pate and I chose the camembert followed by the beef burgundy for him and the duck for myself. All the dishes were beautifully presented and excellent and we were each able to manage one of the lovely desserts. The staff were very attentive and helpful and made the evening complete.

Really nice food and very friendly staff. A wee bit disappointed that we couldn’t get the eye fillet steak or the lamb on the night we went, however what we did have was nice.

Fabulous food. Would definitely go back.
Our young waiter on the day needed to have more guidance on food delivery.
A good experience.

Lovely food - really enjoyed the French menu and unique options presented. Thank you for turning down the music when requested - it was hard to talk or concentrate on conversation otherwise. We found out waiter to be quite inexperienced as they couldn't answer any of our questions more than we could guess the answer ourselves, so we ended up googling a few terms to understand them. This only added to our humour really, but I'd have preferred to have better help. Otherwise a very lovely night.

An excellent meal catering to our additional needs (allergy) and while the nervous young waiter was a tad inexperienced he and everyone there were very nice and made us feel very welcome. Food was as authentic as the proprietors, very French!

Very hot in restaurant, AC not able to cope.
Found starters were very nice, but then let down by mains which were ordinary.
Service not always consistent.

Four of us went on a First Table booking as we were going on to the theatre afterwards. We received a great welcome from very friendly staff. All our meals were beautifully cooked and, although not quite what we expected, they tasted delicious. Would definitely go back again.

First table here worked out really well as we got to eat excellent food.
We can really recommend the prawn starter which we shared and loved the pork belly and creme brulee (also shared). Beef bourguignon was okay. Easy parking close by and comfortable decor made for a pleasant evening.

Spring is in the air so we decided to eat 'al fresco' on the little patio outside the Restaurant. A great little spot to relax and enjoy a couple of drinks and a wonderful meal after a warm welcome from the Host. I can recommend the Kirr Imperial to wet the whistle which is a glass of champagne mixed with Blackcurrant Liquer. Wonderful. My husband couldnt go past escargot in a French Restaurant and I had the terrine served with 2 tasty chutneys, some greens and toasted flatbread. I chose the Pork Belly for my main which was melt in the mouth and served with roast potatoes plus I had a dish of seasonal vegetables to complement it. The other main was the Duck in orange sauce which fell off the bone. I didn't go past the Profiteroles at the top of the Dessert Menu and my husband tried the Crepes Bretonne for fans of salted caramel. Fine Dining at its best. I would like to come back one night when the cafe has one of its Theme Nights with professional entertainment. An excellent dining experience thank you.

We had an enjoyable time at the restaurant though it got very busy before we ordered our desserts. The main courses were nice but not outstanding but the desserts were very good. I think the restaurant does really well when not too busy but on a Saturday night there is obviously pressure to get everyone seen to in a reasonable time.

The most amazing french restaurant. From the lovely service from the owners to the gourmet food. Would highly recommend the duck confit and the escargot. Would come back when we are in Tauranga. Thanks again for the amazing experience. Much better than what I have had in Auckland.

Enjoyed the food and service. Nice relaxed dinner. First time actually having a 3 course meal. Only downfall would be the Suezette(desert) the alcohol wasn't quite burnt off so had a very strong taste of alcohol. Other than that all was good.

Had a lovely time at Cafe Versailles. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty, moist and tender. I had the lamb shank and would definitely recommend it, my friend had the duck and said the same. Finished off with a shared dessert and a nice glass of red. Thumbs up.

We were greeted at the door in a very friendly manner, so it made us feel the staff really wanted us to dine at Cafe Versailles. The service was excellent, we couldn't ask for more. The food was beautifully presented really living up to a high standard. The background music was at the right level, not intrusive. As out of town visitors this was a great experience so we had plenty of time to get to the show we had booked.

The restaurant is a bit dated but the food was good. The snail was alright, just feel like the garlic is too strong so you can't really taste the snail. The creme brulee was good.

Bonjour and Merci Cafe Versailles for my first authentic French dining experience. We didn't know what to expect but went along with Snails, braised Lamb stew, out of this world 4 fromage Tortellini Pasta, topped off with a winner Creme Brulee and Chocolat Mouse. WOW is the lasting impression... We'll be back!

We had a great night. The staff were welcoming and service was great throughout the evening. The food was great, the best eye fillet steak I’ve had in a long time cooked to perfection. Early dinner wasn’t a problem there were two other tables and the restaurant filled up in the next hour so great atmosphere. We will be back. Thank you
