    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] Read more

    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

    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. Read more

    Make a stop at the coffee window for the best cortadito in town.

  • ToryBurch

    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.

    There's no better place to have an authentic Cuban meal than at Versailles. No visit is complete without a Cuban sandwich, mojito, ropa vieja, plantains, and Cuban coffee. [Eater 38 Member]

    I see too many people order coffee at the table after their meal. Please don't cheat yourselves of the ultimate experience. Pay for dinner and have coffee at the coffee window with the locals.

    ...get a taste of Cuban inspired cuisine. Most likely the best Cuban food in town with great service and atmosphere... Try the Arroz con pollo!

    Be aggressive at the "ventanita" don't let all that Latin blood intimidate you - and they sometimes speak English :)

    Versailles made its mark on Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's campaign trail when he hosted a breakfast event here on January 13, 2012. Get your wonk on at

  • The Feast

    A Little Havana institution, it's where to take anyone looking for Cuban. Sit inside and feast on big portions of ropa vieja (shredded beef) or go to the walk-up counter for an empanada and cortadito.

    Come to "The World’s Most Famous Cuban Restaurant" to celebrate with friends and family or, if on vacation, to get "el sabor" (the taste) of Miami.

    If you see the barista walk in from the back carrying a croqueta tray on her shoulder, order 2, wash down with an orange juice, and then a cortadito. Call me later.

    This is where we like to go for The BEST Cuban Sandwich in Little Havana, Miami. Try a side of Fried Yuca with cilantro garlic sauce, a nice variation from the classic garlic mojito sauce.

    THE best cafe con leche is at the window between the restaurant and the bakery - also? Don't get dessert at the restaurant - take a walk over to the bakery ;-)

    A bit of a tourist trap, good food.

  • Gustavo G.

    If you're at the outside window the only way to get service is coming up to the window and saying hi to the cafesito girls. They're not ignoring you, this is just how it works.
