“A Miami landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I come here every time I visit Miami and its worth it every time. The staff are efficient and friendly, and everything on the extensive menu is fresh, authentic and delicious. Soak up the vibrant atmosphere and refreshing sangria, and finish the meal with a cortadito like the locals.

“Go for Cuban culture and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a legend in Miami and while the food is not the best Cuban food in town, it is still pretty good. Think of it as a diner with flare, living in the 50s where you are just as likely to run into the mayor, a senator, or the mechanic just getting off the night shift. Big portions, cheap prices.

“Good service, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We went to Versailles to try Cuban food. The restaurant is quite large and tables are fairly close together which makes it noisy. The empanadas we ordered as an appetizer were excellent, service was good, food was provided quickly. We ordered two different sampler platters and one of the kids ordered an omelette. Other than the empanadas, we thought the food was OK, but nothing great. It was an interesting place. Glad we tried it, but probably would not go again.

“Loved the Paella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I have heard many great things about the restaurant. All true. Very large. The food was exceptional and filling. The Paella contained tons of meat from clams, mussels, squid, and shrimp. Kids had the cuban flat steak and loved it. I would definitely go here again in Miami

“Food just average but good to sit amidst old Cuba”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We went early in the dinner hour and avoided the wait. Our dinners were just average, two just OK fish dinners, tasty rice & beans, too soft white bread. We were unable to get chopped garlic to add to our very good tostones side dish (after asking several times, a waiter finally brought us a small dish of vinegar with a bay leaf). But go to sit among the interesting people and chatter in a true Cuban environment. Groups of men and women who meet there, perhaps nightly, chatting and laughing. Also, reasonable prices help and the desserts looked really good. We visited the attached bakery after dinner and enjoyed some good pastry that night back at the hotel.
