Honestly... I only go Saturdays and Sundays for the breakfast buffet. It is delicious! The staff is really nice. And the price is beyond belief. They have Cuban and American breakfast items. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good breakfast.

Really nice cuban food, quiet atmosphere (not so loud and crowded as the "famous" Versailles) service is fast and friendly and the prices are also good.

Breakfast with the whole family and friends is always great. I left Florida 3 yrs ago and this is the place I miss the most. A must try is "Croquetas" they are made of ham and then battered and fried. Delicious!!!!!!! The Best!!!!!!

When you feel to have one of the best cuban expresso coffee, this is the place. When you feel to have one of the best cuban sandwich in Miami......this is the place. Usually, the place is pack and you have to have a little bit of patience but it will be rewarded when you start eating.......just don't even think about... More

If you ever need a quick bite, they have window for speedy service. But if you are going to have dinner with the family, enter their dining room. Excellent atmosphere. Food truly Cuban. No complaints here.

This place was not that busy but none cares. Someone brought us water and bread and when told him that we are ready to order just said someone else would take our order. Well that never happened and we were ignored by that waiter, a waitress, the greeter, the manager. We left and let them know why. They not even... More

This place is located in Bird road next to Locatel Pharmacy... It has lots of people all the time, they might not want to improve in food as they have enough people... I certainly would improve both in food and service... The place also looks dated and could use some cleaning!!! The white rice and black beans are very good...... More

Well I live really close to this Carreta which is in a very good location, close to shops and many other restaurants, movies, pubs, sports bars. The food is very good here its a bit congested though, be careful in the parking lot, crazy drivers
