Good food

La Caretta has good food. We had Churasco style steak with rice and red beans. We went with a large party and everyone ordered different food. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Very tasty.

I've never been a huge fan of Cuban food but apparently that's because I've never had it the right way. I ordered The Sampler and it was a perfect assortment Ground Beef “Picadillo”, Roast Pork, Ham Croquette, Tamale, Yuca, White Rice, Black Beans and Sweet Plantains! Combined with a mojito I was in heaven.

Typical Cuban breakfast complete with cafe con leche and tostadas. The plate comes with option of croquettes, which in this Cuban girls opinion are the best anywhere. The only down side is that the service is inconsistent. Sometimes good, sometimes not. Not usually great. The food is worth the visit-so will definitely go again.

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

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.
