If you are at Doral and you love Cuban food, this is the place. Good service and nice surrounding. Not expensive, great lunch alternative.

**** must try for great Cuban food* A group of 6 of us went for lunch. Everyone ordered different dishes. The place is great for tourists especially if u want to experience a good Cuban meal with the Cuban vibe! The decor is very colonial Spanish and the staff is on point! There is also a small Cuban style cafe... More

I have been going to this wonderful restaurant for many, many years. It is an absolute must whenever I go to Miami. The plantain soup is to die for, The chicken noodle soup is delicious, and the different Cuban sandwiches are also wonderful. I have tried other dishes, mainly because other people order them. And I have always had very... More

I went to this restaurant many times. My kids love this restaurant. Especially the black beans. Go for the food not for the friendliness. Staff mostly speaks Spanish first, some of them can't speak English at all but when you say you don't speak Spanish you get another waitress to service you.

We are coming into Miami from Jacksonville to leave on a cruise Saturday morning. I asked an old friend plus my niece what would be a good place to have authentic Cuban food near the Miami airport. Both mention La Caretta. Of the 12 of us who went to dinner that night, my wife and I were the only two... More

We chose La Carreta for a business diner based on their TA review and was not disappointed. The mojitos were good, the food delicious, and decent service. They had a pretty good live mariachi band which would have been great to sit back, drink and listen, but loudness made table conversation difficult. I would definitely go back, but probably not...

Hostess was not so friendly, but the rest of the staff were great. Food was delicious, I would move to Cuba to eat like that every day.....but I am sure I would gain mucho kilos!

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
