Best restaurant near UCLA – If you go to UCLA and want to get out of Westwood, Versailles on Venice is the place to go. Get the #6! The chicken is delicious and savory. You pay only $9.99 but you'll have dinner for the next few days! Its a great place to take a friend, or for group events, and its even a great place to take a date! You won't be disappointed!
Great food, service, atmosphere – I almost missed out on this restaurant because I was discouraged by the full parking lot and long line along the outside of the building. Luckily my friend convinced me it was worth the extra effort (and we managed to find a relatively close parking spot on the street) - and he was right. Once we got in the door, the waiter was friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the Cuban food definitely lived up to the hype. The famous garlic chicken (I had to order it) was moist and flavorful, and I also really liked the black beans they give you on the side. For drinks, the mango milkshake was great though the glass was on the smallish side, and my friend's Materva (a Cuban soft drink) was so good I'm going to order it the next time I go. And I'm definitely going again.
Delicious cuban food – i love this place. it has the best roasted pork. it is cooked a long time and the meat literally falls apart. they put this amazing garlic lemon sauce on top of it. yum!!! The only problem is that you have garlic breath afterward. They also have great fried yucca!!!
Best Cuban food in the state. – I have been eating here for 15 years. I'm sure everthing on the menu is great, but the only thing I eat is the garlic chicken dinner. It is legendary. When I have out of town guest this one of the stops we have to make.
Decent Cuban but Watch Your Bill – I used to live half a block from Versailles and now I live two blocks. However, I only go there now when friends drag me. Although the food is decent and great price, I've had an awful experience as of late. I went with a group of 10 for a celebration. Even though we stayed there about another fifteen minutes or so after we paid the bill, THEY DID NOT COME BACK WITH THE CHANGE!!! We overtipped our already generous tip by over $30!!! We thought someone had taken it but after checking with everyone, it was confirmed that the waiter did not come back. Another time, a friend and I (just two of us) were seated at a four-person table (two 2-person tables connected). I guess they got busy so they just took the other table-- which would have been fine except they just took it. No "excuse me" or explanation. My handbag that as on the other table as well as the vase were just moved to our two-person table. Versailles has cheap eats but understand that when it gets busy, service just gets weird.
Not too impressed... – We met our friends here for dinner last night (on their suggestion, but we had been wanting to try it). I must say...not too great. I don't eat red meat and that was a problem--so vegetarians be warned-there are maybe three options. I ended up getting a grilled chicken sandwhich, my boyfriend got the fish. Neither had very much flavor to it, and his was more bones than fish. The garlic and butter bread they served us first was better than the actual meal.The other people we were with seemed to enjoy their meals, so there must be some good things (I hear the garlic chicken is what they're know for). They also serve plantains with EVERYTHING, but they weren't very good, I don't like them too much anyway, but my boyfriend loves them and he didn't think these were too great. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, but it took at least half an hour for our food, and they weren't that busy. One thing that bothered me especially is that they sprayed off the tables around us with Windex, and no one wants a thick amonia smell while they're eating.
This would be fun with a big group of people, you could order a few dishes to try and pass around and get a few bottles of wine. Other than that, I probably won't hurry back.
amazing garlic sauce ever! – oh my gosh...the garlic sauce is crazy good with chicken i think it's #6 on the menu...could be wrong. but so good! i'm going back there tonight! also, the platains are bomb diggs! enjoy!
Best Cuban Food Ever – Delicious... Great place for Brunch, Lunch, Dinner. Suggestions: The entire Menu.
I have tried about 40% of there dishes and all have been great.
The atmosphere is very pleasant.
Great for lunch with co-workers/friends or maybe even a romantic dinner. Not a large menu variety for kids.
Would not suggest for kids. But great for others.
I'm sure you will enjoy.
Good place, horrible parking – I came here at the invitation of a coworker. I had never tried Cuban food before and found it to be very tasty. My chicken dish was good but it was a bit odd for me to see large slices of onion piled on top. Other than that, the atmosphere was warm and my meal was very good. I'd come back to try their other dishes.
Best (only?) Cuban restaurant! – the portions are HUGE. i've never finished an entire plate by myself. The servers are all super cool. I recommend going for lunch for a cheaper menu.
