We were greeted in Spanish and then English, but that is okay! We had a terrific dinner, I had something that I have not eaten in 20 years and it is still on the menu! Wow!!

There are a few La Carreta's in Miami, and this one I have to say is not the best. The food here never seems fresh and the service is always slow. The customer service itself is very nice, but they take way too long. I've had a few instances where the chicken or meat I had seemed raw. I'd rather... More

Terrible service. Not so clean place. The food cannot be called haute cuisine; rather it is Cuban fast food. I definitely don't recommend this place to anyone!!

Sunday 8/23/2014. We invited some Mexican friends so they could try typical cuban food and what a disappointment this experience was. The A/C was not functioning properly. The server although nice was not very experienced. They had ran out of Ox Tail (Sunday's special) by 2PM when we got there. The Natilla Carretera was frozen on the bottom. Needless to... More

Nice Cuban setting, food is really good! Except the place is a little filthy. If you take the time to look at the floor and the bathroom, it's dirty. They should mop the floor and clean the bathroom, then I would have given them all the stars because it has a lot of potential.

We found La Carreta quite by accident and were glad we did. We were actually looking for a place to eat lunch but they didn't begin serving lunch for another half hour. Therefore, we ordered breakfast and I must say it was the best breakfast I've had in a long time. We had veggie omelets and they were cooked just... More

La Carretta has been around forever, but it still offers some of the best Cuban food in Miami. Ropa Vieja was delicious, as was the Bistec Milanese

Conveniently located in West Kendall with ample parking and a good size restaurant. Quality breakfast with nice presentations and generous portions very reasonably priced. Café con Leche has taste and power. Opens at 8 AM for breakfast and people are waiting outside. Good for lunch and dinner too.

Our first visit with 2 of my girlfriends. Our waiters name is Ricardo....and he is the worst. Needs attitude overhaul.Did not stop to ask us if our food are ok. Turns out as he told us that his section is closed and he has been there since 9 am. Understand his predicament...but no excuse for his behavior. We did not... More
