On February 2015 we visited again this great latin-cuban restaurant Every time we cross the sea from PR to Miami we have to visit this place. You cannot find a place where you can eat the famous plantain pie (pastelon de maduro) o amarillo like on here. So smooth, a lot of picadillo and superb black beans with rice. What... More

I just had to express my opinion in both languages because this is a Cuban/American restaurant t displaying a mixed environment which makes it unique and appealing to both the Hispanic and American customer. The food is healthy but most important to a demanding crowd, tastes super good. For some reason you feel good and happy inside the restaurant, it... More

Unfortunately, the girl who sat us was a little sullen, but the rest of the service was fine, and the food was pretty good. We both had roast pork. One was the usual roast pork, the other more like pulled pork. The Moros rice was great. Wasn't keen on the plantains, personally, but that's only my taste. There was nothing... More

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
