“Good value Cuban food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Stayed at the nearby Holiday Inn Express and the staff recommended walking to La Caretta for dinner. We were glad we did. The food was very good -- we had two different types of Cuban skirt steaks with rice and beans. The service was helpful, and the waiter tried his best to help us understand Cuban food (despite his limited English and our nonexistent Spanish skills). In the end we were happy with the selections he recommended and the bill was pretty low for what we had (about $40 including drinks for two people).

“Very Good Food !”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This trip to Miami we wanted to try Cuban cuisine. This restaurant had good ratings and was near our hotel, so we decided to try it. There were a lot of people there, but the service was still pretty prompt. My wife tried the pulled pork plate and I had the Cuban sampler. Both of these were excellent choices. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and had a few suggestions which turned out to be wise. As others have mentioned, you do get lots of food. The restaurant was nice and clean and it was a very pleasant dining experience.

“Great Cuban Food”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is a great place to go for Cuban food and Mojitos. We have gone there twice, on two of our overnights in Miami. The prices, the food quality, service, staff were all first rate. The place to go if you are near the airport or the International Mall.

“Genuine experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

All the while in the place and while eating, I thought this must be a genuine experience of Cuban eating. I enjoyed every dish and the fusion of the flavors were just fantastic. The prices are really good, and caution to you if you are not a big eater as the servings are really generous. We ended up with boxes of food to take to the hotel.

Staff were very accommodating.

After your meal, make sure to drop by the "bake shop" outside and try cuban pastries that would complete the treat!
