Versailles Restaurant

 3555 SW 8th St
Miami, FL

not what I expected

This restaurant is far from what they say. We started with a sampler platter of yuca fries, ham and chicken croquettes and empanadas. The croquettes were absolutely horrendous! I expected the delicate croquettes made with bechamel and I have no idea what these were made of, tasted like a mix of instant mashed potatoes and who knows what meat since it honestly did not taste like ham or chicken. The alioli for the yuca fries was extremely garlicky and the only thing decent out of this platter was the ham and cheese empanada. Then we order a Valencian Paella for two and that was a disaster. Instead of getting what we order the waiter took it upon himself to bring us a Versailles Paella (totally different from the traditional Valencia Paella) his reasoning being that what we order would have taken almost an hour to make while this one only takes 15 minutes. REALLY?!!!!! I am from Spain and I know “Paella Valenciana” takes time yes, but it was what we ordered he had no right to change our order. It was so disappointing. I will never go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.
