“Authentic Cuban Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

My husband and I were highly recommended Versailles so we made a point to have lunch there. We order the Fried Pork Chunks, A Cuban classic dish! The plate was very generous in size, served with beans, rice and fried plantains! Yum! Just enough for 2 people. We also ordered a the Versailles combo which had Ham and Beef Empanadas, Ham and Chicken Croquettes, Yuca Fries Served with Cilantro Sauce. Everything was wonderful. Service was great! We even had Cuban coffees afterwards to help digest the big meal we just ate! Definitely a must visit while in Miami!

“Good deal - fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Went here for lunch on a weekday, so there was not line or wait. I imagine that this would be a busy spot on weekends. Wife had grilled snapper and i had the chef's special of oxtail stew. The snapper was extremely fresh and very deliious. My oxtail stew was fall off the bone tender, however, was salty. Both were served rice and plantains, plantains were very tasty. Prices were very low $11 and $14, and, the service was very fast. They have 2 free arking lots. Highly recommeded and did not disappoint as i consulted Yelp reviews beforehand.

“Good Food Weak Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

The location is easy to find and parking is adequate. The dinner food was good. The bakery was very good. Service was not good. The staff was eager but poorly trained and poorly managed. I would return if I was looking for Cuban style food.

“Good Food, but Service Needs Some Work.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

We had a large group of 20 and it was disappointing that they would not accept a reservation. I called ahead one hour and was told come on in we are empty. Well, an hour later that was not the case and we had to wait for about 25 minutes. The menu is diverse which was great for our group the night before our Ragnar Relay. It was shocking to see that they only assigned one server to a table of 20, which took nearly 20 minutes just to take a drink order and then another 20 minutes to order dinner. In all it took us nearly 1:30 minutes to get our dinner. The food was great, but they really need to work on service. Then again if you are busy all day I guess you don't really care. Be sure to check out the bakery next door, the desserts are splendid.

“First timers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

We were looking for good Cuban food and Versailles was recommended to us by a friend who had nothing but high praises, and he was right. Atmosphere good and enjoyable.
The menu is rather large and it takes a while to figure out what to order.
The service personnel and nice and helpful.
Usually with larger parties someone is bound to be unhappy but that was not the case here.
What was rather humorous was the "cafe con leche". Before we git a cup of coffee and a little milk. Here was a cup of milk and a shot of espresso. Tasted super never the less.
Given the chance again we will gladly return!
