The VACA Frita was burnt and it took them 45 minutes to serve us. We had to keep asking for refills and condiments. Not going back

Atmosphere is okay here, but service is good and the food is really good! Husband had the roasted pork "Lechon" and the rest of us had the "Palomilla" steak with Moros Rice and a few side orders of Yuca with Mojo and Tostones with extra Mojo! Menus, as I recall, are in all Spanish so if you're not fluent and... More

All three of us enjoyed our selection from a menu with a variety of options. They have a good Cuban sampler entrée that was tasty and reasonably priced. I would recommend it for those who want to experience a little Latin cuisine Cuban style!

At 9 in the evening, I had some Cuban delights with fried plantain, rice, and chicken. The tazito de café y croquetas were so good! Thanks for the Cuban treat! I shall return...

I am not an expert on Cuban cuisine but La Carreta certainly meets the criteria. The ambiance is totally 90 mikes from Key West and servers speak Spanish to make it mire authentic. Although we visited fir breakfast, the menu was complete. Excellent choice when in Miami. Quick service!

Best Cuban sandiwich outside of Havana.. If you want everyday Cuban food this is your ticket. I had breaded steak with black beans and rice, fried sweet plantains and tostones. Very good. Finish with dulce de leche and Cuban coffee and I cannot wit to go back.
