We only stayed in the Everglades 4 days--and ate here 3 times. Yes, the food is that good. Not fancy or pricey--but flavorful. We did breakfast--and oooh, the cafe con leche. There was a constant stream of people at all hours. Worth it!

We had their their Snapper Fillet with Salsa verde its super good and strong flavours. Very strong on garlic - we liked it but if you are not garlic fan then chose another sauce option. My wife kept stealing from my plate....

She ordered their porridge but was not happy with it as it was slighly salty and similar in texture to canned pumpkin soups.

Their tres-leche is very moist and super sweet. We dont like it that sweet and with dollops of cream so if you could order it without cream - please try.

Their service staff is very friendly - treats you like family. Their were only 4 other booths with diners and everyone was being treated very nicely.

Located in the Cuban neighborhood (Calle Ocho). Extensive menu, fast service and reasonable prices. Food: fair, always full! For vegetarians beans, plantains and rice! Overall good.

I visited La Carreta today and as usual it was good without being spectacular Cuban food. I have eaten here many times and they are consistently the same. I would agree with one of your reviewers that there are better places to get Cuban food but if you're not picky and in a hurry it's good enough. My problem today was fairly serious though. I watched as a restaurant worker, who was wearing blue latex gloves after working outside, walked into the food prep area, grabbed a spoon and cup that the waitress was using to serve cafe, and serve himself coffee. HUH??? Then he went back outside to the area of the large dumpsters and disappeared. Now when the waitress comes back to make coffee the utensils are unsanitary. That to me is a huge red flag about the restaurant cleaning and health policies. Hopefully someone from the corporation reads this and addresses it.
