We arrived and the waiter was lovely and had suggestions when asked.
Felt like a very authentic place with decor and vibe. Even the chefs were speaking in French!
The food was amazing - we had 3 entrees and 3 mains. Was honestly one of the best food experiences we have had in years.
Rose was lovely too.

We are an exceedingly well travelled family and, indeed, have spent a great deal of time in France! Not expecting more than an average meal we found, to our absolute delight, Cafe Versaille provided ambience, excellent service and as for the food...Amazing. We will definitely be going back to Cafe Versailles. We felt that whatever was ordered off the menu would be of outstanding quality. Thanks so much for a great meal Cafe Versailles.

Had a great night. Lovely ambiance here, humourous waiter and tasty food. Particularly liked the baked camembert, delicious tiger prawns, beautifully cooked lamb shanks and beef bourganon. Flaming Crepes Suzzette we're lots of fun and the apple tart delish! My Mum loved the coffee affogato. We had the house Shiraz which was probably the best Shiraz I've ever tasted. Will definitely be back!

Was a lovely evening, we were seated promptly and the service was friendly but not forced.the food options were well described and we were well attended throughout our meal. The restaurant is simple and cosy so we didn’t feel like we were the only ones dining in a big empty space. There were only two other tables seated yet it had great atmosphere. The food was sublime, each bite was gorgeous! I can’t wait to go back and try more dishes :)

In the hot city day we started with 2 glasses of nice cold Gewürztraminer.
Then 2 sets of snails - a bit to much burned for our liking.
As a main we wanted to have shank and fish or duck salad
but fish and salad not in a menu and shank would have taken too long.
Finally opted for beef burgundy and duck leg.
They looked appealing and were served perfectly.
The desert we select petit choux and ice cream with coffee and cognac - superb.
Finally we had pleasant conversation with French chef. Thank you.
All experience very pleasant and next visit certain.
Highly recommended.

Now we don’t go out for dinner often as my husband is extremely fussy and we normally end our night with an argument but as this was our anniversary we went out, I looked up romantic spots and this was one that came up, well we were greeted with a French hello and we had a three course meal and it was all delicious, my fussy husband gave it a 10 out of 10 wow. My only complaint was I ordered a vodka and lemonade and the lemonade was flat, but this was recitifed quickly. What great service and a great meal. We will definitely be back. Thanks

Food was good but seems just as good as most other restaurants in Tauranga.
We ordered the pork belly and duck, the crape that is on fire (literally) and the special coffee. The pork belly is meant to have cider incorporated in it somehow, would’ve loved to have tasted that cider flavour. The duck was lovely, recommend the duck. The crape being in fire was a very cool experience, recommend just for that.

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.

Our young waiter on the day needed to have more guidance on food delivery.

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.
