We Enjoyed It

Decided to go to a "genuine" Cuban restaurant. The food was good, not great. We were expecting more spice in the food and it was relatively bland. We'd go back and try other menu items just to see if we'd have the same experience again.

I have visited La Carreta on numerous occasions and have found it to be good at all locations. Consistent and predictable. Not sure if there are any real superstars on the menu, but as I said all are good. Picadillo is flavorful, but not spicy. If you've never had this traditional fare, it is seasoned ground beef with potato and... More

If you like Cuban food. This is it. All of the menu look appealing and it might take a moment to decide what you want.

I was very disappointed in going to a Miami favorite restaurant in Miramar. Cuban food normally has flavor and big portions but NOT in Miramar. It is average food served in average sized portions but with a steep price tag.

I've been a follower of this chain of restaurants for a long time and.this particular location was extremely disappointing from a overall customer service perspective. Their staff was unfriendly and slow..Their food service was slow and cold. I was extremely disappointed and would noy recommend this location.

La caretta is a very good restaurant. My family and I went there for Valentine's day last year and we all were impressed. No one was disappointed and we all enjoyed our food. If it's still on their menu, "The Stuffed Plantains" is a MUST TRY! It's fried plantains shaped in the form of a little cup filled with a... More

Good Cuban food at a very good price. Their lunch has a wide variety. Sunday breakfast is a buffet and definitely worth every penny. Not expensive, good value.

Great dining experience. We went on a Sunday evening and were pleasantly surprised by how fast they seated us. Menu is filled with a wide variety of food. We had the roast pork, palomino steak and the barbecue chicken breast with black beans and white rice. Food was seasoned to perfection and delicious. The portions size was enough to take... More

I loved the breakfast at La Caretta. I ate Cuban pastries with guava/cheese, croquettas and Cuban toast with Café con leche every single day. It was so good and very affordable. Most days, my breakfast cost less than $5. That's a deal!
