After reading the glowing reports & having them confirmed by the Zagat 23 rating, we raced to Coral Gables to Las Culebrinas and were inspired by the surroundings - large & festive - only to be truly disappointed by the food. Fried calamari was mushy, clearly the result of oil not being hot enough. Our main courses weren't properly seasoned and were far too bland. We much preferred the Cuban dive in South Beach on Collins Avenue. What was lacking in atmosphere didn't matter since the food had some taste.
