I was invited to eat at this very casual restaurant last week and was pleasantly surprised. I had some "tronchos" of fish which were large cubes of breaded and fried fish which were delicious. I especially appreciated that it was very fresh. The moros were really good also. The waiter was knowledgable about the food and very attentive. I will... More

went on 5-24-14 for dinner, had ropa vieja (shredded beef) and it was tasteless, wife had vaca frita (fried cow) it was much better but still does not warrant the prices which are a little too high for Cuban food. What was very good was the flan but at $4.25 for a little cup was a little on the expensive... More

Stopped by this highly recommended restaurant neat the Opa Locka airport. We arrived just after 2:00 pm on a Saturday afternoon and we found this place very busy. I was impressed with the cleanliness and attitude of the staff. We were promptly seated and our waiter reviewed the specials. We ordered roast pork and Molina's skirt steak. The meat, plantains,...

Can't go wrong. This is a very authentic and quality Cuban restaurant in Miami . Service and atmosphere are great. Don't forget to leave room for dessert and a "cortadito" coffee.

I can see why this is a favorite. The food was amazing. Everyone in our party found something they liked from traditional Cuban food to a turkey sandwich. The service was amazing. The place was crowded but the food came quickly. The flavor was incredible. Everything seemed to be homemade. We would recommend this place as one not to be... More

Our friends highly recommended that we try Molina's, since it's their favorite restaurant when in the area. We went on a Friday night, around 7pm. The restaurant wasn't very busy. We were seated right away and served water and fresh warm bread. I ordered the Ropa Veija and hubby ordered the Shrimp creole, a side of chuleta ([pork chop) with... More

Went here for a business lunch and had the roast pork withe rice and plantains - truly fabulous. Huge portion size and the service is very quick even though the place was fairly busy with the lunch trade. Definitely recommend this.
