There is one "must do" any time we visit the Orlando area: eat at Padrino's. The décor is warm and cozy, the staff are friendly and efficient, and the food is outstanding. Don't think we say that lightly. We lived in Miami more than three decades. We are used to (and addicted to) home cooked Cuban food and little authentic... More

The restaurant has a classic friendly atmosphere. The sits are cosy and comfortable, they have fried platain chips with a garlic sauce as complementary entre. The food is good and their flan is a desert to die for, drinks were great and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Highly recomended!!!!!!!

I am quickly becoming a fan of Cuban food. This was really good. Our family of five did not leave anything on our plates. Would have given them five stars but they did not offer mojito pitchers,only offered by the glass. Pineapple and peach were great. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Clean and classy. Great menu choices. Food presentation is very good. The plantain chips served before entrees are the best! Worth the trip..if you enjoy Cuban food and are in the South Orlando area.

A friend and I finally made it to Padrinos, after multiple failed attempts (scheduling conflicts). We got there at about 7pm and we were seated promptly, which was great. Nice location & establishment. We ordered the coconut shrimp and the empanadas as appetizers. I was given breaded shrimps which was reminiscent of something you can find in your local grocery...

Wanted the Cuban food experience and found this place when I was attending a conference in Orlando. Loved the Mojitos and the appetizer of Plantain chips. Food was good. It was alittle dark inside, but felt an authentic vibe!

We've been going here on a consistent basis for now 7 years. Very good Cuban food! The roast pork dish is so good (my favorite)! I've also tried the "arroz con pollo", the "ropa vieja" and the skirt steak. You can't go wrong! We go with the kids too, they really like the plantain chips with garlic sauce which are... More

We ate here a few nights ago and it is one of the best meals i've had in Orlando! Staff was very attentive and helpful. Restaurant itself is a bit noisy, but not overwhelming, and there was a guitarist plucking away and singing. He was good! My husband had the ropa vieja, and I had the churrasco steak with chimichurri.... More
