“Excellent Cuban Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Excellent food, comfortable restaurant. We make a point of eating at their location in Orlando whenever we're there. This was the first time we'd eaten at the Hallendale Beach location. We'll be back next time we're there.

“Great authentic Cuban”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Our son in law is Columbian so decided to treat us to some authentic Cuban cuisine. Started off with the best garlic bread that I have ever eaten and then we had plantain chips for an appetizer. Never thought I would say that plantain would be tasty but these were amazing, Then ordered a dish with yellow rice and chicken (arroz con pollo a la jardinera). Huge portion and delicious taste. That and a nice cup of cuban coffee to follow ended a perfect meal. Others in our party also ate as much as possible and were extremely pleased with their food.Our daughter is vegetarian and was also able to find something on the menu which she greatly enjoyed. Only thing that we found was not as good as we had hoped was their version of Key Lime Pie. We had recently taken a trip to Key West to the Key Lime Pie factory and their pie was to die for, Hard to compare any pie to theirs,

“Great Cuban fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Based on the review we saw of Trip Advisor, we tried Padrino's. We were not disappointed. In fact, we came back a 2nd time later in our trip. The Mojitos were excellent, as were the empanadas, paella and churrasco. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. If in Hollywood and looking for Cuban - or just a good meal - you should definitely got to Padrino's.

“Good Cuban food at a good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Good Cuban food at a good price! You'll eat well. Expect a busy, quick service, family ambiance... much chatter, welcome to Havana :) and good food. If you're looking for a quiet place, this is not it :) It is bustling with conversation and hungry tummies.

“Great Food, but the manager mmmm....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

It really is a great place! The food is the best cuban in town by far. But the lady manager is as rude as it gets, which is very surprising because I know the owner the Original Padrino and the guy is a class act. The service as far as the waitresses and waiters is nice and efficient but if you happen to need or face the manager...Good Luck! Dont understand why this lady has to be such a b...!
