French in Versailles

Full-length windows frame the Cour d’Honneur and Cour Royale at this resplendent light-flooded restaurant inside the Château de Versailles. Created by superstar chef Alain Ducasse, it offers breakfast (mini pastries, organic eggs), small lunchtime plates (like citrus-marinated mackerel with horseradish crème) and afternoon tea (such as chocolate soufflé with Ducasse's Paris-made bean-to-bar chocolate, or laden platters with tea or coffee).

Evening dining is possible by request. Little 'princes and princesses' can get a gourmet two-course kids' menu for €12.
