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

This is one of the locations in the small chain of La Carretas. It was my first visit to this restaurant. Server seemed a little slow or distracted even though it wasn't busy at all. Wife and I were still extremely pleased with the food though. We both got the Classic Sampler dinner plate and were glad we did. Since... More

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.
