Dinner

We stopped here for an evening meal. To start we were given bread to snack on with our drinks prior to our mezl. My wife had a roast pork chunks combo and I had a sort of strip steak. Both meals came with rice, black beans and platains. It was delicious. The portions were more than adequate. We... read more

My wife and I frequent the Padrino's in Planation at least once a week. The service is impeccable and the food is always fresh and flavorful. I would recommend the Bistec De Pollo and the Vaca Frita.

I had lunch at Padrinos today and enjoyed the buffet. There are many delicious items to choose from, both hot and cold, and the food selection is always changing. Buffet price is $10.99 and is an absolute bargain.

We've been 4 times, always consistent, quick, and delicious. We will make a special trip when craving Cuban food. The roast pork is out of this world!

Always enjoyable. Full Cuban menu along with a lunch buffet and once a month pig roast. Never had a bad meal. Staff is good. Prices are good.

The food is always reliably good. We were there on a Friday night and there was live music. My only complaint is that the restaurant is quite noisy and with the loud live music it was hard to carry on dinner conversation.

I Had Churrasco steak, didn't even need Chimichurri Sauce it was so flavorful. My wife got the fried pork chunks [Masitas De Puerco Fritas], very good too. Fried plantains were cooked perfectly and the black beans and rice were solid.
