Absolutely delicious. We ate there twice over the course of three days. The Cuban is great, as are the empanadas and the Imperial Rice.

This is the most famous Cuban restaurant in Miami. An amazing selection of Cuban cuisine with great service. Many US Presidents have stopped to experience the restaurant when visiting Miami.

This cuban diner is a very popular tourist destination for its cubano, supposedly the best in the US. I can’t say how it stacks up to others but it’s pretty darn good. There’s ALWAYS a wait, so go next door to their bakery and grab a light snack.

Prepare for a long wait. It's nothing fancy but it's good old Cuban food which I love

What’s the next best thing than actually going to Cuba? In the heart of Lil Havana this restaurant captures the history and genuine flavor of the Cuban culture

Delicious and reasonably priced Cuban food - the black beans and yellow rice in particular.

It's a Cuban must...probably the most popular Cuban restaurant in Miami. The croquetas are to die for, I honestly love the cafeteria section more than anything else lol.

Rude and unfriendly customer service and bland tasting food that took almost an hour to arrive.

Best Cuban cuisine in South Florida and a landmark. Tastes like the food my grandmother cooked me when I was a child.

I came here with a large group of friends on a Friday night for dinner and good conversation. I found the food underwhelming of sorts. Maybe it was the hype of this place, but I did find the food delicious, but nothing worth writing home about.

I ordered the roasted pork, which came with boiled yuca. The pork was tender, well seasoned and tasty. And that's about it. The yuca, which I've had a number of different ways, was bland. Maybe that's kind of the point. It's the way it's made at home. Not my favourite side dish. A bit starchy and slimy texturally. The dish was not my first choice. I did want to try one of the specials, but they were already out.

Service was great. We were checked on often and our glasses were full quite often.

This was a good experience and I do want to come back and try more items on the menu.

I remember when I would come here with my father. Now, it's a Miami icon and it's still a great place to eat at. Just be ready to wait in line.

This is the world's most famous Cuban restaurant, something that they really advertise. The food here is good--not spectacular--but good.If you're in Miami and looking for Cuban food, I'd say go here simply because it seems to be the thing to do.

This is another MIAMI staple. Especially if you're Cuban. The "Arroz Imperial" is superb accompanied with sweet plantains and a cold beer. ;) It's always crowded in the weekends and even more so whenever there are presidential elections or news concerning the Hispanic community. Love to argue and prove your point? This is your place. Come down and enjoy a "colada" and share your opinion.

Good food. It is the only place where I have ever ordered a pitcher of sangria with no intention of sharing at 2 AM.

A popular Cuban restaurant since the 70's, Versailles is a staple when it comes to serving authentic savory dishes. A few of the signature plates include slow cooked spare ribs that are marinated in a guava barbecue sauce and served with plantains along with shredded grilled chicken with onions and white rice. However, that this place is really known for is the big breakfast buffet offered every Sunday starting at 9am with options like Cuban pastries, codfish fritters and French toast. Of course this spot wouldn't be complete without serving up traditional cafe con leche to accompany the meal.
