    Touristy but for a good reason. Rates as the best Cuban restaurant in Florida and ranks amongst the best in the world. I cannot disput that. The food was exceptional. The empanadas was good and steak with Moro was delicious. I'll be back. They also have a bakery that offers nice treats!

    To me it is just Ok food but amazing Cuban coffee. You will experience, traditional Old Time Cuban flare and ambiance. Free parking and moderate prices

    Versailles Restaurant, The World’s Most Famous Cuban Restaurant, has been serving tasty Cuban cuisine and culture to the South Florida community and tourists from around the world for four decades. Soon after it opened its doors in 1971, Versailles quickly became the gathering place and unofficial town square for Miami’s Cuban exiles. Today, it remains the unrelenting gauge of the community’s pulse. Not surprisingly, Versailles is typically the first place politicians visit locally to garner support from the Cuban exile community, and the restaurant is equally a favorite among the media for gathering commentary and footage of the community’s take on social and political issues. It is not uncommon to see local, national and international media set up camp in Versailles’ parking lot, where they’re sure to get a flood of local viewpoints.

    Very good food and excellent service. Even a non-Cuban like me feels quite welcomed. Also try the bakery - good stuff.

    I suspect this isn't particularly authentic Cuban food, but the portions are generous and the flavors are bold and pleasant.

    If you’re anything like us, Cuba has been on your travel bucket-list since that fateful day you first saw Dirty Dancing Two. Luckily, Miami is the next best thing to Havana. We recommend Versailles Cuban Restaurant in Little Havana for seriously authentic to-die-for Cuban fare.

    This place was on my list of restaurants to try while visiting and it didn't let me down at all. First of all this place is huge and part restaurant and part bakery. They have some really great classic Cuban dishes that were just about as good as my favorite Cuban restaurant in the Bay Area. Of course this is Miami and my expectations were high but they won me over for sure

    Versailles Restaurant offers delicious & authentic Cuban cuisine! Get a Cuban sandwich or a Cuban specialty such as the roasted pork. They also have delicious appetizers such as plantain chips and empanadas. If you want a taste of Havana on the go, grab a pastry or empanada at their to-go window just outside their restaurant. For dessert or a delicious Cuban coffee, go next door to Versailles Bakery!

    Stretching a block along Little Havana's Calle Ocho, this cuban restaurant is an iconic part of Miami. Grab a guava pastry and a cafecito at the window or go inside and enjoy lechon asado, a sandwich Cubano , or ropa vieja. Yum.
