Fodor's Review

¡Bienvenido a Miami! To the area's Cuban population, Miami without Versailles is like rice without black beans. First-timer Miami visitors looking for that "Cuban food on Calle Ocho" experience, look no further. The storied eatery, where old émigrés opine daily about all things Cuban, is a stop on every political candidate's campaign trail, and it should be a stop for you as well. Order a heaping platter of lechon asado (roasted pork loin), ropa vieja (shredded beef), or picadillo (spicy ground beef), all served with rice, beans, and fried plantains. It's not quite as good as true homemade Cuban food, but it's a requisite stop in Little Havana. After overeating, battle the oncoming food coma with a cup of the city's strongest cafecito, which comes in the tiniest of cups but packs a lot of punch. Versailles operates a bakery next door as well—take some pastelitos home.

Just so so...

Very mediocre atmosphere other than fun people watching. Fair mojito. Good sangria. Steak - good cut of meat, not so great fries. The seafood gratin was good - very cheesy, good sauce that came with plantains which were great. Overall, nothing to write home about. I think there are probably more exciting dinner places, but might be more appropriate for lunch.
