Is it worth visiting? Absolutely. Will it be the best meal you've had in a long time? No. But the food (other than the bakery and the cafecito) isn't why people are flocking to this Miami institution of Cuban social life and eating. As our Cuban family reminded us, this is the "Grand Central Terminal" of Cubans, local and visiting,... More

If you have never eaten cuban food that is the best place to go. It is really so good and the atmosphere very interesting. The waiters have certainly been hired for their muscles as they all hold a very heavy tray at arms

VERY GREASY FOOD! The people served our steak raw. It tasted like rubber. All of the food we ordered tasted very bad and everything we ate looked and tasted disgusting. Way to expensive for gross tasting cuban food. You could do better elsewhere. Ripoff, rippoff, ripoff. Just overall... A horrible experience

Versailles in my opinion, is the best Cuban restaurant in Miami. If you are looking for authentic Cuban cuisine this is it! This restaurant complex is enormous featuring a dinning room, bakery, ice cream shop and a for those customers that enjoy cigars a smokers bakery. The baked goods are prepared fresh daily and are divine! I have tried many... More

This is a quaint cuban restaurant that clearly has a following. We have eaten here several times when we have been in Miami before and after a cruise. The food is great. The prices and portions are good. My children like it too. Service is usually good, but we did have slow service one night. We love the steak Verailles,... More

Seeing as how I love Cuban food, it was an absolute must that when I landed in Miami I find some. The food at this restaurant was real good, service was very prompt, items were reasonably priced and the restaurant has an old Cuban style ambiance. The only bad thing about this place is that you might have to wait... More

Had dinner with girlfriend on a thursday night. Got their around 900pm b/c I heard it gets busy and we figured we would miss the rush. Google maps got us there easily. Be aware that there are three business under the Versailles restaurant all at the same location. There is a restaurant, a full service bakery, and a walk up... More

You have to come here to eat OUTSTANDING Cuban food. The place is always full so get there before the dinner rush in order to get seated if not then you will have to wait a bit. The food is fresh and tasty. They have a HUGE menu which is great because you will find something delicious to eat. They... More

We took a taxi from the Hilton downtown and it cost about 20.00 to Little Havana. The service was great and the food- plentiful and very tasty! We were surprised on the very reasonable prices on a restaurant that is so popular! Having very limited Cuban food background our waitress explained every food question our party of 6 had with...

Versailles is an institution in Miami. As a Cuban living in the northeast I tend to gravitate to my food roots when I am in Miami and Versailles is one of my favorite destinations. Everything they serve is genuine and plentiful, the way Cuban food is supposed to be....and the price is more than reasonable for the quality and amount... More
