This is a casual authentic salvadorean restaurant. In the summer, a few tables are set outside but are quickly nabbed. Food is delicious, especially the pupusas served up with the slaw type condiment. Hot sauce is not too spicy but a nice condiment. All this washes down nicely with a horchata.

I love La Carreta! not a "new and trendy" place but the food is to die for and service is great. Been there a few time and will continue to go. Try pupusas, avocado salad and plantains with cream :)

The pupusas are a great size and not very greasy, unlike some other restaurants i've tried. Lots of options to choose from for pupusas as well as other traditional latin-american dishes, like tacos, tamales, etc.

Authentic cuisine and very friendly staff. Worth a visit if you are in Montreal.

Good neighbourhood joint with simple, inexpensive and tasty bites. Good place to chat and relax in the heart of Little Italy.

We've been visiting Salvadorian gem for years. They have a good assortment on their menu but their pupusas are incredible: pork, chicken, etc (our favorite are pork & pork with cheese). They provide amazing condiments at no charge (shredded picked cabbage and salsa. PLS, PLS, PLS ask your waiter for the salsa piqante as well!)

The Good:
- Fairly priced (a pupusa goes for under $3 each. You need 2-3 to be full).
- Usually very quick from kitchen to table
- They do take it!
- Consistently delicious
- They make good coffee!

The Bad:
- They could work on their table service. Waiters tend to bring you water once and forget about you.
- No AC in the summer and it's an old building...
- Eating there during the winter. The restaurants big, old windows provide very little insulation from the cold.

Definitely try them out sometime!
