“Great Meal that Hit the Mark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Had just enough time between flights to drop in here. I lived in Miami for 18 years and sorely miss La Carreta and Versailles. The food at the airport location was so good. Generous serving of pork with a crispy piece of rind on top. Yucca was cooked just right -- smooth and garlicky. Tres leches was a great finish. Ladies serving the food were warm and friendly, as were the cashier and the waiter. A very nice experience all around.

“Terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I decided to eat here because it looked like a nice place to eat comfort, home food. Service was ok but food was terrible. We asked for the simplest food you can have, a grilled cheese sandwich. We were served 30 minutes later because they had made a mistake with the type of bread and had to redo everything. Everybody was getting served but us. After a while, we were served two stiff pieces of almost warm bread filled with fridge cold cheese. I regret not having gone to Starbucks.

“Great welcome food to Miami.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

If you happen to be in concourse D by gate 39, you must eat in La Carreta some awesome Cuban food. The entrance seduces you with the aromas of home cooking food. The eyes are teased by the desert shelf, tres leches, flan, ... Yummo! The food is fresh and taste wonderful. Yes a meal can hit you about $18 bucks but I rather pay that for good food than for same horrible airport food. No McDonalds for me, no way no how in MIA. If case you want something lighter they also have great sandwiches freshly made to order and if you are just inteterested in just a snack and coffe... Well they have an outside bakery and Cuban cafe place where you can endulge. Trust me on this one. You will love it !!

“Good airport food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A welcome change from fast food places and overpriced crappy saran wrapped sandwiches. The portions were generous, the food really good and most of all prices were reasonable. Seriously the best airport restaurant I have been to.
