This was my first time going to eat Cuban food. I went to the one on Venice Blvd in Los Angels. The service and the food was fantastic. Will definitely go back again.

Great food, great service, it's hard to find good Cuban food however this place has it! Not sure what happened to the spot of Venice I used to frequent the spot when I lived on the West side in College.

This was the second time I have eaten at the Encino location. Service was quick and soft drinks were offered to be refilled without asking. The bread is brought out and is called garlic bread but our basket had 5-6 small pieces of thick French bread that had some drizzled butter (?) and small pieces of garlic but that covered... More

The food is not really amazing. But the shakes are so good and awesome. The place is not so clean and tidy. We will not come back here again. Tried it once and that's it.

We stopped in for a mid-afternoon lunch -- good service and the food was excellent. I chose #1 Lechon Asado -- roast pork marinated in the house specialty (garlic sauce). Definitely try for a dish with the "versailles" sauce -- there will be no regrets. They have a nice wine selection, but I would choose beer (negra modelo).

We Visited this landmark restaurant tonight. Our party of six enjoyed Cuban sandwiches, Cuban pork and chicken. The service was fast and the beans and rice were perfect! We saw lots of smiles and friendly faces. We will go back when in this part of LA.

In preparation for a trip to Cuba in February, this is the third Cuban restaurant I've been to in about 4 weeks. The first item brought to my table was a complementary basket with 3 slices of mediocre garlic bread. It was not warm or crispy. I only ate one piece. I wasn't very hungry, so ordered 2 appetizers and... More

My sister convinced me to try Versailles Cuban restaurant in LA. I got the garlic chicken (half a chicken) and it was great! The waiter was very friendly and our food came out quickly. Their black beans and rice mix is also very good. The waiter got me to try a traditional Cuban soda called Ironbeer, it was ok, too... More

I didn't like this restaurant at all. Food was not good, very acid (too much lemon instead of bitter oranges). The tamales were terrible! Six cubans in the table and nobody liked the food. Make your own judgement.
