If you're visiting Miami and looking for good local food come to La Carreta. They have good breakfast and dinner. Try the Cuban coffee, croquetas and Cuban toast to get the Miami locals experience! Just make sure you drink that Cuban coffee early in the morning because you will be wired for the next couple hours.

Want cuban food, go where the locals go, and check La Carreta out for great cuban food & service. P.D.... More

I looked up Cuban restaurants for this area and got a bunch of hits. Went to the website and we took a chance. My family came from Cuba and where we live the number of authentic Cuban restaurants are rapidly dwindling, replaced by other latin American restaurants, some calling their food "Cuban". This place is the real deal. The food... More

We usually arrange our timing so we stop by on the way to the keys for lunch and dinner on the way back. This is traditional Cuban cooking at its best. I had "bacalao",salted cod, hard to... More

The food is great ! The staff is attentive and well trained to help the patron with any questions while ordering. The staff watch if there is anything you need but do not "hover" over you. This is where we always come to dine- it is near the Hotel where we stay-Holiday Inn Express & Suites East Kendall
