Upscale atmosphere, food was great and the service was very friendly and attentive! Did I mention the Sangria and Mojito's were awesome! The Flan is a family recipe that never has changed and is to die for!

Okay, maybe we're spoiled. The best Cuban we've had to date is a place called Havana Rumba in Louisville, KY. Great, great, great. Back to Pardino's . . . The chef's favorite item must be onions because it seemed to be in every dish. As you've likely guessed, it isn't my favorite item. The plantain chips were pretty good. My... More

Having had Cuban food in the past, I wanted to expose my boyfriend to one of my favorite ethnic foods. I searched Trip Advisor for a good Cuban restaurant in Orlando that wasn't too far away from our hotel and wasn't the least bit disappointed in our choice of Padrino's. It was much more upscale than I expected from some... More

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant. The food is good. I had the Vaca Frita which is shredded, marinated beef and the flavors were very good. The steak was seasoned perfectly and tender. When you arrive they provide the table with complimentary fried plantains and a garlic dipping sauce. All in all it is well worth a try... More

Strip center location. Great food, nothing fancy as a restaurant but food first rate, great service. Authentic Cuban food, Cubano sandwich ordered along with Paella both meals rocked! large servings provided. Reasonable prices. Located away from the normal Orlando heavy traffic. worth taking a look at.

I'll be frank, I have never had authentic Cuban cuisine before, so this was a new experience. My dad and I had sat down at a table in the bar area and was greeted by the bartender. Certainly get the recommendations of the staff. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgable. The food was amazing! I took the full... More

My husband and I went in for lunch 11/4. We were greeted with smiling faces and seated promptly. They brought fried plantains which were great. We ordered as an appetizer fiesta tostones, they were excellent. My husband ordered Cubano sandwich and I ordered chicken pinchos with sweet plantains. Both of our dishes were served piping hot and were excellent! Service... More

We found this place thanks to other Trip Advisor comments and sure glad we did. Had a wonderful dinner. Staff was friendly and very helpful with recommendations. There were 3 of us and each ordered something different. All were more than pleased.
