Good Cuban Food

CAme here with my son to celebtate him getting his learners permit. He actually drove here from the DMV. He had the chicken milanese with white rice and black beans. I had the caldo gallego and the cuban sandwich. All the food was very good and the service was also good.

The cheese and guava empanadas and cheese Danish were fresh, flaky and hit the spot for a hungry traveler. Love the Drink options too!

This review is actually referring to the location at 10633 NW 12th St., Miami, Fl. 33172. A small restaurant with traditional Cuban décor -- family atmosphere with servers in Cuban-style attire. Extensive menu. Tried the "Cuban Classic Sampler" @ $12.95. Liked most of the items although some were "borderline". Delicious green split pea soup with garlic toast, which was $4.50... More

By Cuban standards, and this review is made by a Cuban, the food is average. My food was way too salty. The atmosphere is of a classical Cuban restaurant, so if you want to have a Cuban experience, go for it.

My sister, her kids and I made a pit stop here for lunch. We ordered the Grilled Chicken Breast and Palomilla Steak; everything was fresh and delicious. Rigoberto took great care of us; we'll be back.

Had dinner and the food and service were friendly in English or Spanish...just keep in mind the menu is Cubano and very diverse. Nice place to have dinner after shopping at the mall.

This is defiantly a must for your late night eats adventure. It has been a local staple and watering hole for every local in the Miami metro area.

I cannot eat in a building that is at least 50 years old, the whole shopping plaza is old - the left hand corner used to be 7 Eleven, with Grand Union across the street. La Carreta's building used to be a LUMS and then something else, and finally for years became La Carreta. I never liked the food, the... More

We visit this La Carreta location on every visit to Miami for authentic Cuban food and some of the best cuban coffee in Miami. Outside by the coffee bar you can have an expresso coffee or cortadito. Top those off with croquettes or a pastelito made of guayaba and you are set with a quick snack any time of the... More

A great way to start the day. Outstanding cafe con leche. Superb service. The setting is a bit tired, nothing fancy, but the breakfast hit the spot, and the service from Lourdes could not have been nicer. Quick and efficient, pleasant & friendly.
