Good Cuban food, good service. The place to eat Cuban food in Pembroke Pines. A favorite of mine. While you are there, try the mamey shake. Delicious.

The food is delicious as always. The service was very good. I ordered fish in shrimp sauce with white rice and sweet plantains. It was a little spicy compared to the others La Carretas I attended but even so, very good!

Have eaten at 5 different locations across Florida now and they're all great (except MIA - don't know why) Fried fish, soups, black beans, yuca fries, etc. are all very tasty and large portions (come hungry and you won't leave disappointed) Materva (a mate drink) is also very refreshing and tasty.

This is a place I take all my out of town friends to enjoy real Cuban food. The service is very good. This is a true authentic Cuban place. If you are on Miami stop by you won't regret it.

Love the Cuban brunch on the weekends! Huge buffet with Cuban staples like picadillo, fried eggs, white rice, potatoes, pasteries, and bacon! Brunch comes with cafe con leche and Cuban toast (duh)! Reasonably priced, but come hungry!
