“Good foog, good and fast service.”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

I went to Versailles for lunch on a friday. When I parked the ar I could see the line waiting for a table. Ayway, it was fast because the place, an icon for the cuban exile in Miami, is very big and the service is good and fast.
I had camarones al ajillo, which was very goog accompanied with maduro frito and rice. My wife had tuna sandwich, which was really tasty. We loved the place, tha atmosphere and the food,as well as the service.The price was very very reasonable!
Nice experience!

Thank Bruselense

“Cuban Food and Excellent Service”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Great cuban food in Miami. This was our first such outing and the food was splendid. Dont go here for extra ordinary ambiance. Go here for cuban food and it is the best cuban food in town. It is packed so parking is a little challenge. The waiters were very helpful with the selection of the food. The place was very busy so dont expect a very quick service however the food arrived in a reasonable time. There is a versailles bakery next doors that sells great tarts and pastry.

“Please... Where is the cuban food?!!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

We stopped there as part of the little havana tour as recommended by trip advisor... Well what a disappointment! Nothing on the menu was cuban for breakfast: scrambled eggs, muffins, pancakes ... Oh and a cuban sandwich, which we took... Well we ended up with 3 small and averagely cooked pancakes and a ham & cheese panini!! And you get better quality out of Denny's than this place!
On the top of it... Why would you name a cuban restaurant: Versailles?! This is french name! Honestly... Dont stop there. What a waste of money and time.

“Traditional Cuban Food!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had an amazing meal! We started with chicken soup (yum!), then ordered a pork dish with two typical sides (rice and plantains). We thoroughly enjoyed our food. We intentionally went to several Cuban restaurants in Miami and surrounding areas and we felt that Versailles had pretty typical Cuban food and since we love Cuban food, it was delicious! It is a very large restaurant and for lunchtime, it was incredibly busy. We were obviously tourists but for the most part, it seemed like most of the folks eating were locals who just stopped by for some lunch! We felt like we made a great choice if this is where the locals come to eat! Would definitely return if we're in Miami again (even though it is a drive from Miami Beach).

“Miami classic Cuban, fine for a local experience”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

A Miami classic. Versailles is situated on SW 8 Street as Little Havana blends westward into Coral Gables. French name, reliable basic Cuban food. The building is very attractive, very traditional. No dish stands out as especially remarkable but some friends from out of town *loved* the pitcher of Sangria with dinner.

On this breakfast visit I had eggs fried well with bacon. I asked for the menu option of "potatoes." The waitress asked if I meant "hash browns," which I gladly accepted, envisioning them as fresh-cut. I received the deep-fried potato chunk, indistinguishable from McDonald's only by its triangular shape. Not impressed on this.

Breakfast is very modestly priced ($), with lunches and dinners also reasonable ($$). You can also stop by the bakery for café Cubano and any of various tasty pastelitos. I did enjoy one with cheese as I left the center-building's smaller bakery with window service. They also have a larger bakery at the east end, with cakes and more elaborate options.
