A memorable gastronomic dinner and an unforgettable performance

Each course is introduced by a little piece of theater, like a perfectly orchestrated ballet. The restaurant team put on a unique spectacle every evening. Every detail has been meticulously planned to immerse you in a historical atmosphere reminiscent of the Age of Enlightenment.

Dinner at Château de Versailles is a theatrical event, the dishes arriving in several acts: the staff wear period costumes to transport you to the traditional atmosphere of the Court. Wines will be paired to your dishes by the hotel sommelier. Let your waiter guide you through a several-course menu, or choose à la carte. After soup, there are starters, followed by roast meats, more courses and then desserts. The dishes, created by multi-Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse and his team are based around seasonal produce, most of which are sourced from Le Grand Contrôle’s garden, just a few steps away from the restaurant.
