Good food - go for the garlic mojo sauce whatever you do

Good cubano but the signature dish is the garlic mojo sauce with chicken, onions, and sweet plantains and black beans and rice. I like the sauce with the pork also. If you've never tried this you need to try it at least once to make sure you're not missing out on something you really like.

I went to the restaurant to try to famous Cuban chicken. The food was good but the service can defiantly be better. Nothing to special about the restaurant. An average mid-range restaurant

Awesome authentic Cuban food (try the famous Garlic Chicken) and a very lively vibe. Great authentic cocktails as well.

Great Cuban food in a nostalgic setting. Make sure to get the roast chicken, roast pork or the Cuban sandwich. Fried plantains and moros are great with any meal!

Went to Versailles restaurant on a return visit to Los Angeles. Last time I ate there was 20+ years ago and it was great. This time it wasn't as great as I recalled. Perhaps it was because I went around 3:00 in the afternoon. I ordered the garlic chicken and it was dry. The restaurant itself looked run down. Just... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The garlic chicken is the dish to have! I also love the plantains and black beans and rice. The staff was efficient and friendly as always. I never miss the chance to visit this restaurant whenever I am in LA.

If you want authentic good homestyle cuban cuisine - this is my number 1 place to go. It's casual, not upscale by any means, but I would NOT classify this as a whole-in-the-wall type place. It's large portions of well-priced (not cheap), well-made cuban food, with no pizazz. There are other Versailles that are "nicer" but this one is by... More

Many friends and family that have attended more recently than me have said it's still awesome and the food still wonderful. Wish they had one where I live. Oh dare to dream.....

This place is famous for it's chicken and several of our party enjoyed the huge half chicken portions served in a variety of ways. I had the Mahi Mahi special which was served in garlic butter with a side of fried plantains. It was delicious. The restaurant was very noisy making conversation extremely difficult. Dinner for 4 with tax, tips... More
