It was excellent. I am partial to Cuban sandwiches and have to remind myself there are other dishes. Prices... read more

I have been to Padrinos several times over the last couple of years, most recently with my parents who were visiting from out of town. They have a variety of mojitos to choose from, my two favorites being the strawberry and the coconut. Each table gets a basket of plantain chips served with a garlic oil that's awesome! (One of...

Everything was so good! Our server, Daniel, was great! Ordered an appetizer and 2 entrees, took food home. There was so much! Can't wait to go again next time we're in Orlando.

A bit out of the way from most hotels but well worth it. So good, just like the original Padrino's we remembered in Hallendale, FL. Highly recommend it; real Cuban. Would go back next time in town.

It was pretty empty when we visited, on a Tuesday night. We had a great round table perfect for 6 people. The menu is large, and the pricing is moderate, $7 drinks, $8 sandwiches, $16 entrees. Wine list was pretty awful, but I wouldn't pair wine with cuban food anyways. Our meal started with delicious complimentory fried plantains with garlic... More

Padrinos is our go to place when we are in mood for cuban food. My family's favorite is the Vaca Frita and Croquettes. Excellent food and service.
