We loved the ambience and the food was good. But as soon as the other diners left we were encouraged to drink up and leave ASAP - all in a comic, almost Laurel and Hardy fashion. The waiters were very attentive but the old man behind the bar treated us as we have never been treated before . It was only 9.45pm - 21.45h in French. That is quite early in France but perhaps not in Versailles or perhaps not rue d'Anjou, the gentleman walked past our table looking at his watch at 9.40pm and then proceeded to turn off all the bar lights. His body language was tense - clearly wanting us out. We could never go back. He ruined our lovely evening. We threw our wine, Perrier and coffe down our throats and left. We did leave a tip which we hope the young waiter got hold of. Stephane you need to sort him out !

Our group was staying across the road in the hotel and the first night we had a group meal there. Friendly service, good bistro food or a sort that I had thought disappeared. We were a group of francophile culture vultures who also enjoyed good food. We found it there with good humoured service and food. We wen back again and had a meal for two which was equally good.

We visited here on a Monday night after a long trip from the UK. The service was very good and the waiter was friendly and helpful, but when I asked for my steak to be cooked well I was told that they wouldn't do that. I ordered steak anyway, but what arrived had only been given a fleeting glimpse of the grill! In fact it was still cold in the middle! I was tired, so ate it anyway, but it wasn't enjoyable... my colleague had the fish and said that it was OK, but nothing special.
