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.

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

Came with a large Family party. Good all Family wanted Cuban Cuisine. OMG! Told waiter I was Gluten intolerant, asked for a Gluten Free menu and he replied " What is that?" From then on was a fiasco for me! The food for the rest was greasy, the presentation of dishes was sloppy. My fish was frozen prior, could taste... More

La Carreta has been around for a long time. Their staple food is good- cuban sandwishes, media noche, arroz totones ,frijoles, maduros, etc. Their daily specials are good but if you go too late in the day then not so good. They've been sitting in thd pot. Arroz con pollo but old. The steaks are very inconsistent. Sometimes excellent other... More
