Small hole in the wall place with not more than 10 or 12 parking spots, but definitely a great find. I am not of Spanish heritage, but I have lived in South Florida for many years and have had Cuban food from a lot of places. All of the traditionally Cuban fare we had was very good, Ropa Vieja was... More

If you are looking for Cuban food, this is the one for you. We dined at the original place, at Flagler Street. All locals go there, and the waiters are original (most of them were there since this restaurant opened its doors for business). Ask the waiter what he recommends (just narrow it down to Beef, pork, seafood, or chicken),... More

the place is small, one could say cozy, nothing special, but the food: definitely and consistently the best, and I have been going for many years and go to a fair # of Cuban restaurants. The new one by US1 and 27 ave is much nicer and food also good, but somehow its not quite the same. myfavorites: garbanzo and... More

My wife and I went to eat at Las Culebrinas we ordered paella and drank sangria. Let me tell you about the paella. First look online the menu there are some food that takes 45 minutes that means that it needs to be cooked so I suggest calling an hour earlier so they can start cooking it. Because if u... More

This restaurant is lcoated just a short walk from the Hampton Inn in Coral Gables, and was recommended to us by the desk clerk. The restaurant is somewhat dark, but features an upstairs bar and, on the night we were there, live music. We did not have a reservation, but arrived around 8 pm on a Saturday night, before the...

Nothing too fancy, just basic good, fresh food. We had the shrimp stuffed plantains which were a big surprise and very tasty. The Skirt steak texture was a bit spongy but the seafood that came with was excellent and the chimichuri sauce very good. The flaming custard was average. They come to your table with a torch and carmelize the... More

And I'm not kidding. I've been eating at Las Culebrinas for years now. And, when my partner suggests that we eat there, my imaginary tail starts to wag. I've had many items on their menu. My personal favorites are the bistec empanizado, the masas de puerco frito and the salmon in cilantro sauce. I've also had the bistec balsero (omg!)... More

A stones throw from MIA, they serve the best Cubano food on earth! Probably better than even Fidel gets in his mansion in Havana. And they have blended in some local stuff as well, so it's got something for everyone. The prices are so cheap you won't believe it. Give it a try, it's a real find.

A 15 minute drive from South Miami Beach but well worth it. The food was excellent. Wonderful flavors. Excellent taste. HUGE portions. The food was very reasonably priced. The wine was good (Ours from Spain) and reasonably priced. The service was friendly and attentive. I will not miss this outstanding restaurant on my next visit to Miami. 15 minute drive... More
