We went for the traditional Pig Roast buffet (served on the first Saturday of the month). They slow roasted the whole pig in a wooden box. The pork was tender and full of flavor! The buffet included rice, beans, salad, plantains and other side dishes. I was too busy savoring the pork to focus on the side dishes. I did... More

This place is an hidden original gem in this area. The food is not the most spectacular but it is originally Cuban. A local staple. If you are visiting you must stop by to enjoy the flavor. Very affordable and good service.

The appetizer of beef empanadas with chutney was delicious and my teenage son and I seriously considered ordering another plate of them. However, the main dishes we both had, while well-prepared, were just not as flavourful as I was hoping. My son had rice with chicken and vegetables while I had the succulent pork with onions. The pork was very... More

My wife and I were vacationing is south Florida this weekend and stumbled upon this jewel. Friday lunch time and a packed house. So, we too got in the buffet line. Ten bucks. All you can ear from a wide selection of delectable Cuban dishes. Awesome. Going back tomorrow for a second helping. Y

My wife and I ate here for her birthday. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable. The hostess and servers were all professional, friendly, and, unlike most restaurants in Florida, the service here was lightening quick as well. We had their sopa de pollo and beef empanadas as appetizers, Skirt steak with chimachurri sauce and paella for main... More

Cuban food is cooked with spices. Padrino cooks food that is so bland they could serve it in a nursing home. I have been to the padrinos in Orlando and it is also bland. They claim that they are from Cuba but they must not have learned to cook.

I have been coming here for many years. Service has been average or better depending on time of year. Portions good as is the prices. Quality of the dishes range from average to very good. But consistent over the years. I will continue to go to this restaurant. Because the food is always good and tasty.

I've only had the lunch buffet here. The food quality and taste it fantastic and the price makes it a very good value. I always try to find out when they have pork at the buffet table. It is Yummy! The restaurant is very laid back and friendly. Recommended.

We look forward to good Cuban food every time we visit Miami and we weren't disappointed. We had friendly and quick service. With appetizer and dessert, our bill was less than $60. From the steak to the Cuban coffee and Flan, we enjoyed it all and would certainly visit again.
