Hankering for a genuine Cuban sandwich having travelled throughout Southwest Florida and sampling imposters, we headed to Versailles to sample what we hoped was truly one prior to our departure from Miami. I can honestly say, we weren't disappointed. My son ordered the traditional Cuban sandwich... read more

We wanted Cuban food and we didn't want to drive all over the city. This restaurant was 15 minutes from our hotel and recommended to us. It is in Little Havana. We were told it is an institution and that it has been around for decades. It's fun because the name doesn't seem to fit the cuisine and the decor... More

This place is big and bustling. We enjoyed the ability to experience Cuban food, and the cross section of different folks from Miami who eat here any given day. Our kids weren't as excited as us parents to try something new, but the desserts were appealing with the homemade ice cream. I'm sure it feels like this is just a... More

Every time I come through Miami International Airport I have to stop at Versailles for food. Less than 10 minutes by car and less than 15 minute wait. Not the best, but good basic cuban cuisine done fast and at good value. Start with a litttle Mojito to get you in the mood. Again, not the best I had, but... More

This is always a must when in Miami. The roasted pork is amazing!! Plan to wait in line if you are visiting for dinner on a weekend. I say wait in line....it is worth the wait.

This little gem in Little Havana has the best Cuban food in Miami. The Cubano sandwich is a must have, take the waiters recommendations we did and it was amazing. Don't forget to stop by the bakery outside for a delicious pastry for dessert.

Love sampling great Cuban food at Versailles. I visit this restaurant each trip to Miami. I love the chicken & rice; black beans; roast pork - all great. There is always a lively crowd too.

We ate here at the reccomendation of a friend. The place was packed with patrons and I understand why now. Food was plentiful for the prices that we paid. I could not even finish my entree. The staff was friendly and they came to our table to sing happy birthday to one of my friends. I would go back and... More
