I was looking for some good Cuban food while I was visiting the Miami area on business and a local co-worker recommended La Carreta. We enjoyed an excellent lunch, with average service at what I consider a pretty decent price (2 of us for $22). Maybe there is better out there, but when a local who was born in the... More

I've been in la carretta two occasions the first one was for lunch, not bad at all, the staff was awesome, on how they introduced the plates and themselves, the food was okay. My second visit was for breakfast which I enjoyed 200x better once again points to the staff, and this time the food was great, and not so... More

Pleasant staff - food was OK for Spanish food . The wait staff was very patient considering we had a group of small children that were a bit unruly at times.

The food is reliably good, the service depends on who you get. They seem to allow employees to chit chat and you see them cornered in groups gossiping away while you wait for water but no doubt they have good cuban food

Prices are somewhat average, but food is delicious, the garlic bread they give you at the beginning is delicious, I recommend ropa vieja with white rice and tostones

This place is convenient, and they serve what a Latino would call "normal food". The Ropa vieja (shreded meat with rice and black beans), onion soup, arroz imperial are some examples of good dishes. They serve Ceviche, which is eatable, not very good if you compare with Ceviche in peruvian restaurants.

My partner and I stopped here for lunch. We started with the Homemade Plantain Chips and then we both did the Vaca Frita. We had to send the first order of chips back because they were cold; a new order appeared almost instantaneously. Nana makes better Vaca, but this was still pretty good. We also had Mamey Papaya shakes...pretty scrumptious.... More

We love Cuban food! Being from the Midwest, it is always an must to diver on Cuban fare when we are in South Florida. This restaurant did not disappoint. The classic Cuban dishes were represented. We tried the Classic Cuban Sandwich and the roasted pork. Both were well prepared, flavorful and the service was excellent. We dined at this establishment... More
