I love this place!!! – I love garlic, and this place is abundant with flavor, and great food. Even the plain white rice, I want to devour. It's a great place with cuban comfort food...it's not fancy, but the food makes up for what the decor may lack. Order whatever you like...it's all good!
AWESOME FOOD! – This place is by far the best Cuban food I have ever had out here in LA! The staff is great and the price is very reasonable! I've dined at expensive Cuban restaurants, but this is the best bargain for your buck! Just don't go during rush hour, because parking is very limited.
YUMMY CUBAN FOOD – They give you huge portions and most come with rice, beans, and plaintains...oh, so yummy!!! Great food, good service, not costly. Parking is horrible so prepare to make circles around the block to find a parking spot.
Good – We ordered the original chicken. The portion was huge and fed 2 of us well. We also had the cuban flan which was really rich and creamy. I wish I had gone with more people so that we could try other dishes as well. The pork looked really good. Go there early or else it gets realy crowded.
Consistently Great!!! – I love this place. Tonight I sat down had some beer, fried yucca, tamales, and their signature pork. Always delightful. Great service. Alway's full but I never wait. Consistency is the hallmark of a professional. This place is always on point. Flavor galore.
Addictive Pork! – Their pork dish is awesome! It's something that I crave for once in a while. I've tried various dishes, but I always return to #1 on the menu. It seems like the garlic chicken is their signiture dish as well, but that was nothing compared to the pork. Portion size is very big, and the price is reasonable. Parking is a problem here, and you might have to wait in line for weekend dinners, but it's worth the wait!
Place has Good Food like Puff Daddy has Class – I can see that all of the good reviews for this restaurant were only written by people who know the owners because they sure don't know what good food is. The Garlic Chicken at this restaurant is just plain disgusting. It has so much garlic and fat on it that when I stuck my fork in it nothing but grease surfaced up to the top. The food was delivered within about 3 minutes of sitting down which means that it was probably sitting under a heat lamp for hours. The plaintains were good until I got down to the garlic soaked bottom. Bananas ans greasy garlic sauce are not a good combination. The decor in this place is "Straight Outta Compton." Do not take any dates or clients here.
Versailles is OK if... – -You like to wait in a long line (which usually moves fast on a weekday nite) and be 'seen' by others who do the same (but it's worth it and the owner won't expand to incl a bar)
-You don't mind NOT being able to order a Media Noche at nite (what's the point?)
-You don't mind a totally impersonal dinner, altho very inexpensive and expediant.
0 for 1, but I'll give it another chance – My boyfriend and I had to wait in line for a table, but we were seated within 20 min. He ordered the chicken and I ordered the pork, both with their signature sauce. The food came out really, really quick. His chicken was good, but I was a little disappointed by my pork. The portion was small (they gave me more onions than pork!) and there was too much fat on them for my taste. But the generous helping of fried plantains and the beans and rice filled me up. The service was okay, but be prepared to look for parking. Although I was disappointed by my choice of dish, Ill give Versailles another try sometime and order something different.
