So, we are not Cuban, and living in Colorado, we have almost no experience eating Cuban food. Every time we visit Florida, however, we attempt to find a good Cuban restaurant, as we love the food. We got into Orlando, and were starving, so I checked TripAdvisor for a good restaurant by our hotel (Universal area). Then my husband said... More

We came with a group of people and samples each others food. I'm not Cuban, but everything was delicious. So we came back again for dinner in Oct. We came on a Monday night, I figured it would...

We’re Cubans, so we are pretty good at judging Cuban food and out of all the Cuban restaurants we have tried I have to say that this is the BEST in Orlando. The food is delicious, our favorite dish is “vaca frita” and don’t forget the “mariquitas with mojo”. They serve a reasonable amount of food and the prices are... More

Great food, great mojito, and warm atmosphere with live Spanish guitar music last Friday night. Almost immediately after sitting down our waitress Stechalie greeted us with a warm smile and a basket of plantain chips with a side of garlic sauce. From then on it was a feast, I had the Lechón Asado topped with some thinly sliced sautéed onions... More

Padrino's has the BEST Cuban food in Orlando. I eat at this restaurants at least once a month. I love their Vaca Frita with white rice, black beans and sweet plantains and of course their croquetas are delicious as well. It is a great place to have a nice dinner with family, friends and even to take clients for lunch.... More

This is one of the shops in a great location for a group of restaurants. There are several choices to make, but I went for the Cuban food. The service was excellent, the food was very, very good, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Prices were very reasonable for all the items on the menu except the desserts. I thought they... More
