“Great Cuban Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Molina's is not a fancy place, but it's the place to go to if you want good Cuban food at a great price.

“not a professional in services.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

I went to have lunch with a coworker, the waiter was excellent, the food average, when we finished, they had connection problems, system was down to use credit cards and we had to stay there in our lunch time for 18 minutes and finally we had to call a friend to brind cash to pay....A restaurant like Molina at least should gives credit to their costumers for a lunch....We had problems at work for coming back late...Molina is not a house of professionals in service..Im not coming back....

“Best in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been eating at this restaurant since I was 8 years old (30 now). It is, by far, my favorite place to get Cuban food in Miami. It's not fancy by any means but its deff the best bang for my buck. My vaforite plate is the Bistec Empanizado (breaded steak). I can't say enought about this place! If you ever visit Miami, make time to try this place! They are great!

“Wonderful Cuban fare and outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

My friend and I felt like malanga fritters and this is one of the few restaurants in South Florida that serves them. Wow! Once again, they were incredible. For a neighborhood restaurant, this is one special place. The vaca frita, rice and black beans, sweet plantains were outstanding. Our wait staff suggested a Cuban type lager beer called Hatuey and that was also incredibly good.
I cannot say enough about service. Quick, attentive, professional with smiles on their faces. Although the prices have risen a bit, the food and the drive are well worth it.

“Good Cuban Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Good food at a good price. Try the "Biste Artesano" you can choose between chicken or beef, is a thin steak topped with cheese and ham and baked in oven. Delicious, This dish is not available in a lot of Cuban restaurants.
Good for small to large groups.
