It's been a long time since we tasted good French dishes like we had tonight. Two choices for escargot entrée - wonderful! The wine list was adequate, but nothing to boast about. Service was attentive, and sometimes amusing as some staff who clearly do not speak French tried their best to do so.

The food was amazing, I cant wait to go back. We had an early meal before a movie, and they promptly brought the food out. Great service, beautiful flavors and has a real french vibe to the restaurant.

Cafe Versailles is great French bistro downtown near the main shopping area, movie theatres and not far from Baycourt Theatre. The food is excellent and the house Pinot Noir is a bargain. The Maitre'd is entertaining but can be a little over the top. We have eaten here twice this year. The menu is authentic French fare. The Cassolette d’escargots... More

I have always thought that food at a French restaurant would be pretentious and overpriced but this is not the case here. We loved every morsel of the very tasty food and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We love the fact that they had French speaking staff working in the restaurant. Definitely planning on going back to try... More

Amazing food and friendly staff. We had scallops as a starter they came presented in the shells was a nice touch, the beef burgundy and the roasted pineapple dessert was amazing, my partner had been meaning to go here for the last 11 years and it lived up to the expectation.

Came here on a business trip and had a quick dinner. Ordered the escargot with garlic butter. Can't fault it. Taste good and very much like the ones I have tatted before. Ordered the lamb and thought I ordered lamb loin. As it turned out I didn't read the menu properly and it was actually a lamb casserole. So when... More

We had the pleasure of dining out at Cafe Versailles in Tauranga while away from Auckland on a weekend retreat. The owners are genuinely French and greeted us with warmth and good humour which immediately put us in a holiday/ festive frame of mind. The menu has a great range of French cuisine. My husband had the Beef Bourguignon and... More

Please go and check this out. Wonderful food, ambiance,service. It has it all. I go there at least one evening when I'm in tauranga and it has always been more than worth it. Was worried once with the owner not being there herself but I didn't need to. Must try.
