Being from Miami, this wasn't great and it was a bit pricy. The Bistec was overcooked and the mariquitas were a bit burnt. On the plus, my mango mojito was great. We paid $100 for 3 people which made it pricy!

A must visit to experience Cuban cuisine in Orlando. The staff was friendly and helpful, explaining all the different dishes to us as well as offering suggestions and favorites. The food was absolutely unbelievable and we ate until we couldn't anymore. This will definitely be a stop on my next trip to Orlando.

I ventured to Padrino's after arriving in Orlando. It was the best decision I made during the whole trip there. I made that decision several more times. Everything I had was incredible and the service was the best ... and contrary to another review, as a single white guy, I was treated as incredible as every other guest there. Not... More

We tried this place based on positive reviews and were not disappointed! The food was delicious! Loved everything we had. The flan was some of the best I've ever had! The service was just as wonderful as the food. Wish there was one closer to my home. Definitely will be visiting here on return trips to Florida.

This is my happy hour spot. Best mojitos in town. Never liked mojitos until I tried them here. The tostones are my favorite. The chips are great and the empanadas as well.

Had dinner with my husband at Padrino's. Was very disappointed with my Caribbean ribs. Had absolutely no flavor. Seemed as if they boiled the hell out of the ribs before dropping it in the fryer and putting some sauce on it. Was really disappointing!

Compared to Cuban food served by Columbia's restaurants in Tampa and in Clearwater, Padrino's Cuban meals are ten fold better. Service was very quick. The food and drink were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.
