Good Cuban Experience

Great Cuban food with good service. Must visit the bakery and take out some guava pastries on your way out. Location could be more central to Little Havana, but not too far out.

We know this city is fast phased. We started with a great breakfast. In the past I had visited this restaurant for dinner and we had a great experience so we decided to give it a shot with the breakfast menú. We started by giving the pettit pastry shop adjacent to the resturant a glance to chose a great sweet... More

I order fish and potatoes or sea food or steak and it is always excellent quality. Also their coffee and flan is amazing. Come to dine after your theater experience or just to get your gossip. I recommend.

Everyone says to go to Versailles when visiting Miami. We know why! Excellent food and classic atmosphere. Its a must-do for anyone who loves food whether a Cuban fan or not. On our first visit, we pretty much let the waiter order for us. We were not disappointed with the Combo Appetizer (empanadas, croquettes), Famous Cuban Sandwich, and Roasted Pork.... More

Found our experience at the "best Cuban restaurant" in American very disappointing. Rude waiter who rushed us through our meal and stood over me waiting for the the bill to be paid. Food was no more than average although very reasonably priced. Could have been so much nicer with a better service. Will not return.

I was told no trip to Miami is complete without a visit to Versailles-- and how true it was! If you love Cuban food, this is a must. Delicious, casual dining with a lot of options for even the pickiest of eaters. The batido de mamey (Mamey shake) was absolutely delicious!

The restaurant appearance is ok, however if you want to taste real Cuban food you have to go to Versailles. The service was pretty good and the food was awesome. If you ever visit Miami you cannot miss this restaurant. Will visit again.

Food was ok....the service was not bad, they know they can pack the restaurant so they could careless how anyone feels. Staff doesn't smile or greet you with a friendly gesture at the table.
