A Cuban institution in Miami

If you visit little Havana you cannot miss Versailles, why is it called Versailles ? who knows I don't think King of France Louis XIV sponsored the place. Great breakfast, if you go on a Sunday, expect a long waiting line as Cuban families meet there for breakfast and it gets very noisy. Food is... read more

Never had a bad meal here. This landmark restaurant with a history of serving celebrities. The service is always good and all of the cuban dishes are served to perfection. Very reasonably priced.

I am not a big fan of Cuban food but Versailles makes me love it. I have to come to this place at least twice whenever I go to Miami. First of all, the restaurant is huge, it's always crowded but they sit people right away. They have daily specials from which I have tried the ropa vieja and vaca... More

Feel close to Cuba in this restaurant. Well known in Miami for their cortaditas (Cuban espresso) and their heritage food. Locals of Cuban descent go and you can tell how close they stay to their roots. Food is good and has good prices. Try the Ropa Vieja with sweet plantains and rice. Enjoy Asere!

Place needs a makeover. There are plenty of better Cuban restaurants anywhere else in town. There is a tour bus stop there so if u don't know real Cuban food u would think this is great. Not at all! Looks dirty and outdated.

This is a large restaurant with huge waitstaff, a cafe/to go area and great bakery next store. Older diner feeling, they could update some but it is not a tablecloth and fine china establishment. HUGE menu, information about the ingredients are included and they waitstaff are helpful. It is large volume and fast service, so don't expect fresh made just... More

It is a very iconic place to visit and eat real Cuban food, pretty good taste and large portions. The guava pastries are the "best in the World" I mean that

A must if you are in search of a true Cuban dining experience. Great prices and good food. Most people that complain about it being busy or noisy don't truly understand what a real Cuban restaurant is like. If you want the real deal, this is the place!
