Our hotel shuttle driver told us about Versailles as he was taking us from the airport to the hotel. We headed there immediately for lunch. We expected a long wait, but thankfully we were seated promptly. The service and food were excellent. I loved the ambiance and the Cuban culture all around me. I would definitely return.

We had a wonderful meal here. We went on a Saturday afternoon, just as brunch was wrapping up (which must have been extremely popular as there was no room to park, and we could see a LOT of people coming out of the restaurant). It was packed inside, and most of the people were locals. The service was very quick,... More

Brilliant food. Absolutely genuine cuisine since 99% of the clientele were large cuban families on a relaxed evening out. Very noisy which made it very welcoming as well. Extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to explain the dishes. The mojitos were perfect and the bar tender was more than willing to really spike them, on request. The... More

The portions are huge so make sure to either share or go very hungry. The restaurant is very noisy so it is very difficult to have a conversation. The black bean soup is excellent. We asked for a cup and it was the size of a bowl. The ham and cheese empanada was excellent as well. We got the sampler... More

Was extremely excited for this restaurant. As a Cuban American I value all Cuban authentic restaurants. I ordered a steak and found plastic inside my rice... To top things off it was Birthday meal. I was extremely dissatisfied. Poor service and plastic in food will not bring me back. Also google this article (Versailles Miami health violations). This restaurant should... More

First thing that startled me at this place, was decor. It's insanely over the top, and it almost makes you laugh. I went there on recommendation of local, as I wanted to experience "real" Cuban food. I have to say that food was excellent and had a feel of home cooked meals. Restaurant was fairly busy, but service was good... More
