Later night Cuban food near MIA

barryg May 12, 2013 08:20 AM

Hi all,

Flying into MIA airport on a Wednesday night and staying over before driving down to the keys. Would love to get some cuban food that night -- but we wont be able to get to a restaurant until 10:30 or 11pm.

What's not far and serving dinner then? We will have a car but dont want to stray too far. Other recs with good food unique to the area appreciated as well.

    Followup: Our flight was delayed three hours so we ended up eating crappy pub food at PHL and crashed as soon as we got to the hotel in Miami.

    We did stop by Karla Bakery on our way out in the morning, got cuban coffee and some savory pastries -- it was delicious. So at least we had that!

    Thanks for your help everyone.

        Thanks! Looks like Versailles is the destination.

        What are the best dishes to order?

          Agree...Versailles is the place to go....At that time of night....it's a very short ride from MIA.....That's the choice!

              Puerto Sagua is quite far from MIA
