I love the croquettas here! They are delicious! The Cuban food here is very good. The boliche or the Vaca frita are usually my go to meals. The service has always been friendly. This place has existed since I was a child.

First time visiting and we were impressed with the food. Generous portions and friendly service. Try the avocado salad, it is enough to share for 4-5 people. We hade the fried porr chunks, baby churrasco (skirt stea), and the stuffed chicken breast. The only side that tates so-so were the tostones, but everything else was on point. Excelent coffee. We...

I ordered the grilled salmon dish with steamed veggies and sweet plantains. The butter sauce in the salmon was to magnificent. To complete the lunch, I finished it off with a "cortadito" (smaller than cafe latte with more expresso than milk), that was fabulous. The experience was good with great service and the price okay for what I ordered.

For almost 30 years we have visited Molina's - as we call it in Miami. The food was extremely good - Cuban Cuisine - and the prices were very very reasonable. Twenty years ago you would make a line of over an hour just to sit. That was unheard of back then. Well, it is no longer that great place.... More

Been eating there for 30 years (since the old location) and although some things on the menu have been changed, what has never changed is the flavor. Great food and service.

The reason that I come back as often I can is because the food here is like coming to your grandma kitchen, the service is average, the drinks OK and the price good, you have wait to be seated and the food is usually on time, the Malanga fritter are delicious and the tamales not so good to my taste....
