Miami New Times' Description

Versailles Restaurant opened in 1971 and, since then, has become a Calle Ocho staple for both locals and tourists alike. The 275-seat dining room is illuminated by golden chandeliers and surrounded by lustrous mirrors -- like a throwback to Versailles Palace's Hall of Mirrors in France. But that's about the only taste of Europe that you'll get at this classic Cuban eatery. The extensive menu features appetizers like croquetas -- deep-fried breaded cylinders of béchamel sauce and either fish, chicken or ham -- and lunch items like Cuban sandwiches -- toasted Cuban bread, slathered with mustard and layered with ham, roast pork, swiss cheese and pickles. The restaurant also serves a variety of seafood, chicken, pork and meat entrees, all available with sides like rice and black beans or fried sweet plantains. Breakfast is served daily, featuring a special buffet on Sunday mornings. A classic "ventanita" completes the Versailles experience. That's where patrons duck in and out for a taste of the restaurant's strong, sweet Cuban coffee.

    A Miami landmark. Just like Mango's on Ocean Drive, Versailles is typically high on the list of visitors looking for that quintessential Miami experience. [Eater 38 Member]

    Order a cafecito -- they’re so potent that more than 1,000 are sold per day at the walk-up counter.

    This is the place to get a taste of Cuba - but do through the outside window when you order a cafesito

  • Thrillist on 06/14/13

    This landmark Cuban restaurant on Calle Ocho serves up the best Cuban coffee in Miami, which has fueled over 14,000 plots to overthrow Fidel Castro.

    For a taste of truly authentic Cuban fare, try the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak in tomato sauce) with a side of rice and beans and fried plantains.
