La Carreta: "Close second to Sergio's" Top 5 Page for this destination La Carreta Tip by Homanded

La Carreta, Miami: 3 reviews and 5 photos

Close second to Sergios is La Carreta. Not as quaint as Sergio's and lately been getting pricier.
Better variety on menu but Cubans will tell you that Cuban food is not about variety but favorite traditional staples.
La Carreta can get quite busy and will (in the case of Kendall location) require a reservation.
Location on SW 8th street allows for a more intimate "Cuban" feel

Food is still good, basic and we specially like their seafood dishes.
