Versailles Restaurant, The World’s Most Famous Cuban Restaurant, has been serving tasty Cuban cuisine and culture to the South Florida community and tourists from around the world for four decades. Soon after it opened its doors in 1971, Versailles quickly became the gathering place and unofficial town square for Miami’s Cuban exiles. Today, it remains the unrelenting gauge of the community’s pulse.

Not surprisingly, Versailles is typically the first place politicians visit locally to garner support from the Cuban exile community, and the restaurant is equally a favorite among the media for gathering commentary and footage of the community’s take on social and political issues. It is not uncommon to see local, national and international media set up camp in Versailles’ parking lot, where they’re sure to get a flood of local viewpoints.

For years, “La Ventanita” at Versailles has been the go-to hub for conversation within Miami’s Cuban community. Welcome to its online home, where the lively discussions of yesterday’s Cuba, today’s politics and tomorrow’s local events continue in a digital space.

Cuban Coffee at Miami International Airport

Well-known throughout Miami and South Florida for serving authentic Cuban cuisine, both Café Versailles and La Carreta have multiple branches at bustling Miami International Airport. Both use the same coffee blend and brewing methods and each year their six combined ‘café corners’ at the airport serve up more than two million cups of Cuban coffee (or Café Cubano) — an intense shot of espresso brewed with sugar — to help fuel passengers and airport employees alike.

Versailles Restaurant is conveniently located on Southwest 8th Street, in the heart of Miami’s Cuban Community.
