Restaurants in Versailles France #8: Le Bistrot Du 11
For something a little more special, we recommend getting a table at Le Bistrot du 11.

The food is absolutely delicious but wouldn’t necessarily burn a hole in your wallet. It’s €37 for a 3-course meal and only €28 for a 2-course meal. Make sure to book ahead if you plan on coming for dinner! One of the great restaurants in Versailles France.
