Gem of a place!

Took colleagues to this place and there wasn't one plate that wasn't cleaned off. I opted for the churrasco steak (skirt steak) served with chimichurri sauce. Well seasoned white rice and savory black beans and sweet perfectly caramalized plaintains. Great prices for the portions. Simply... read more

The service and food are excellent. Great Cuban coffee and fried lobster. The traditional cuban pork was very good. The croquettes are worth the visit!

Had a group dinner with some friends in the banquet room up stairs. There was 3 choice for food.had the pork and it was amazing, the taste was shocking. I have had pork in many places and I can't say that I had ever tasted such good pork. They add some type of garlicky lemon seasons to it that was... More

I expected more out of this place as they charge more $$ for the traditional Cuban dishes than the restaurants in the area. Honestly, the food was average at best and the quantity small for the price. The customer service was a bit cold and for sure I will not be returning here.

I used to go to the one on Coral Way & 117 Ave. but they close it, so we went to the original Molina Restaurant in Hialeah. It was recommended to me by a cousin as very good. Well, not so much, in my experience. We were a party of 3 and all of us rated the food as average.... More

We haven't been back to this restaurant in months, and I say that just in case other, more recent reviews give it a better rating-- in which case, go with what they say, I suppose. But this restaurant moved to its new, bigger, roomier, better-parking situation place a few years back-- right across the street-- and the quality of the... More

We selected based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant is larger and nicer ambiance than we expected - waiters in vests, glass (not plastic) cups & glasses. Service was quite attentive. The menu is large and extensive covering breakfast through dinner. We had a Sunday lunch and they had a steady business but nowhere near full. Many... More
