Excellent Cuban Restaurant.

Simple and excellent! Best Cuban culinary, very good service, excellent price! We ordered a paella and it was supreme! Coffee was Cuban style and very good. We went back on the following day. Grilled fish and shrimp salad were tasty, service very good. I recommend.

Authentic Cuban food, it was clean and fast! We visited there three times in our weeklong stay! The staff was helpful with picking the dishes and we even were able to order for pick up!

I continue to go out of my way to make it by Padrino's anytime I am in South Floirda. The first location (outside of Hialeah) is located on Hallandale Beach Blvd, just before the bridge to the beachside. They now have several locations...I have been to two others (Orlando and Plantation). There are several great dishes....and everyone has their favorites... More

Excellent Cuban food. The pork dishes are very good. along with the yellow rice and Cuban vegetables. Try the key lime pie since it's one of the best I've had. Service is excellent and the place is very clean. I recommend this restaurant and will return during my next visit to the area.

The service was spotty. I had to ask for things I ordered beforehand. The Cuban sandwiches were really not up to standards. It tasted like something I can get at the grocery store. Their "mojo" is just garlic and oil. Their plantain chips were gummy and unseasoned (it sat too long). Menu is over priced.

Went for dinner, we were seated immediately and our server Alma was fantastic. She explained all the specials and was very attentive. Try the guava mojito just the right amount of sweetness also the lemonade with fresh limes was delicious. Prices are reasonable for the amount of food. Only wish we found the restaurant before would have loved to have... More

I would highly recommend you stopping here for a meal. The food and service was great. I had the Chilindron de Carnero it's Lamb shanks braised in a red wine sauce with white rice. It was amazing.
