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

Versailles is simply a native stop for the famous cuban coffee! A shot full of heavy duty caffeine! So if you are not used to it... take it slow! If you are looking for a real taste of Miami, Versailles is one I would recommend of many options! Pros; - Great menu with lots of good options in the native... More

Used to be a great place to eat Cuban food in the late 70's. However, still charming, but overpriced and the food is not as good as it used to be. I would still go just to day "Been to Versailles" LOL

We just visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Miami. We went with a group of 8 and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent. They even have a cafe in the Miami airport where we had the best Cuban sandwich ever.
