The restaurant Welcome to La Flottille

La Flottille restaurant has successfully kept its original French charm, which dates back to the early 1900s. It is located on the canal front of Versailles Palace park, a place full of French aristocratic history. Whether you are seated at the brasserie or the restaurant, you have access to the entire park.

This classically French restaurant is comprised of three separate spaces, each possessing their own special charm. Our staff welcomes you Monday to Sunday, for lunch, every day of the year. On the restaurant's terrace, you can dine in an authentic French environment, full of romance and charm.

The restaurant is opened from midday until 15:30 during which time our Head Chef prepares refined and tasteful dishes. Our menu offers a wide range of meat and fish options, which are cooked following traditional French culinary methods. The brasserie is opened from 10:00 until 20:00 where we offer grilled dishes, daily specials, salads, toasted sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, burgers, club sandwiches, pastries, crêpes, waffles and ice-cream.

We are happy to welcome both small parties and big groups with a maximum of 100 people. All our clientele, whether French or non-French, can select from several menus that are full of variety and bursting with taste.
