if you are around, it is a good experience, delicious food, great service, good prices, nice atmosphere. I was there 2 years ago and I was a little worried it will not be as good as then. But, was even better. For locals, is a good place to get guests out, to have a good taste of Cuban heritage.

We hadn't been here in a few years. Padrino's seemed to be the only Cuban restaurant in Boca for a number of years. Then we got accustomed to another Cuban restaurant that opened in Deerfield Beach. We realized we needed to get back to Padrino's. Are we ever glad we did. In a two week stay, this turned out to... More

I have eaten at this restaurant in the past and found the food to be very good. Unfortunately my opinion of this restaurant has dramatically changed with the treatment we received last night. I was part of group of eight people who were left in limbo for over half an hour because no one was willing/able to accommodate our "large"... More

This restaurant was solid. The wait staff was friendly, the menu and ambiance was basic but good. Ordered the ham croquettes. They were delicious. Also ordered the vaca frita along with rice and beans and tostones. The rice and beans rocked and otherwise the beef and tostones were okay. This might not be their dish but it was solid. Would...

Let me just say that I am not normally a buffet type of person. I went to Padrino's not knowing thet have a buffet for lunch. They have pork, chicken, beef and fish as well as soups and salads. I decided to try the buffet so I could sample several items and while it was good it didn't blow me... More

The Cuban cuisine is excellent. The presentation is colorful and innovative! For lunch, they offer a buffet which is overwhelming. Ordering off the menu proves to be excellent as well. I ordered a Mojito, which was as good as I have had!

We are regulars. We quite often order very simply the la completa ( black beans rice and platanos). The food is consistently delicious. They have special mojitos they make with fresh fruit. Highly recommend this local Cuban restaurant. The decor is nothing fancy.

I have been a customer for about a decade. The food, service, and price have been consistent. In the decade that I have been a customer I have never been unhappy with the food or service and that is more than what I can say about most restaurants these days. In fact there is only one other restaurant in the... More

The Padrino owes me a favor. Not very good. Bland croquetas, "tamal Cubano,"and empenadas. Of the Lechon Asado the pork was extremely dry. Also, all of the items we ordered were 3-4$ more than what tripadvisor menu showed. 18.99 for my churrasco steak. Bogus. A real lover of food will pass this place up. Its food is bland and prepared... More
