Both of our food selections were delicious. My partner, she enjoyed the "fried pork chunks, yellow rice, black beans and fried plantains" dish; I enjoyed the "fresh dolphin with copious creole sauce (lots of red tomato), white rice, black beans, and fried plantains". The service was excellent and very friendly. The ambiance was like a Spanish hacienda with delightful (not... More

Visited this location several times during a 6 week stay at Doral. Tried a lot of different dishes and all of them were great. Due to the portion sizes, always had to ask for a take-out box to enjoy the rest of my meal later-on at the hotel. Outside of the restaurant, they have a quick-service cafeteria where you can...

If you are tired of traditional american food and willing to try something different - this is a restaurant for you. You can feel really the spirit of Cuba not only in the food but in the atmosphere as well. The variety is big. They have anything for everybody.

This La Carreta in my opinion is better than the one located on Bird Road. We've been here late night and the quality of food is still good. The waiters try to go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of. We've gotten watery milk shakes and when pointed out they've taken care of making... More

Family friendly restaurant. Typical Cuban and American food. If you don't want to sit in they have a cafeteria that offers sandwiches and coffee. Highly recommended.

The staff only spoke to me in Spanish, however, I could get by. The waiter in the bar was friendly and efficient. He took my order right away, but wouldn't give me a drink menu. I did get a food menu though. The food was delicious. Cooked perfectly and quickly. The cost was great and there was enough for 2... More
