We were at la Carreta last week and food was good. Carreta maintains its quality and consistency. It is the best Cuban restaurant in the Florida area. Service is also ok

While visiting Miami with another family, we wanted to visit a casual, family-friendly, old fashioned Little Havana Cuban restaurant with great sandwiches, awesome pork dishes, friendly service, and fair prices. We got exactly that, and were all satisfied with the food and experience. Highly recommended.

This would then not be a good choice for eating, Many dishes have all those ingredients she does not eat. You can request a salad without dressing but may have problems with other things on the menu.
