La Brasserie du Théâtre
Although famed eating establishments abound around Versailles, La Brasserie du Théâtre is a classic spot for French fare and reliable service. The brasserie is situated at the west end of Versailles, near Neptune’s fountain, in a 19th-century building right next to Le Théâtre Montansier. While Belle Epoque-era globes glow and gilt mirrors make the dining room seem bigger, this brasserie can feel intimate with tight tables. Still, the Flo chain of brasseries presents a menu of French classics such as steak tartare as well as more contemporary dishes like pan-seared scallops atop mushroom risotto.
