I'm confused - we're coming to Florida in July we're been told that this restaurant has great food. However, when I googled it I noticed that there are two Las Culebrinas restaurants, one at 4590 W 12th Ave @ w 46th street and the other at 4799 w. flagler st. @ nw 47th ave.
We're staying at the Loews on Collins and I dont' know where these restaurants are in relation to our hotel. Once I'm off Collins, Lincoln and Ocean, I'm lost. Also, which one is better or are they the same? I was told that they have music, is this true? Thanks for your help. Amy R

    If you're staying at the beach, the one closest to you is in the Grove at 2890 SW 27th Ave. It's also the nicest one. I recommend the Garbanzos Fritos as a starter and my favorite meal is the pork stuffed with plaintain fufu. After, you can grab a drink somewhere by the Grove and you can experience that side of town, too.

      The original is the one on Flagler. The neighborhood is slightly sketchy, but you'll be OK. Parking is behind the restaurant.

        I just found out that the one I was thinking of, with music on the weekends is on SW 27th Avenue. I don't think it's too far from out hotel. Thanks, AmyR
