Saturday evening.....no waiting, pleasant atmosphere, waiter service was excellent, and the food was excellent. We have been here quite a few times since we live nearby, having super service is a plus. I can't say how much the four us enjoyed our meal... the skirt steak was marinated to perfection, and done perfectly.

Been around for many years and with good reason. Food and service is very good. Variety of Cuban dishes is extensive, fairly priced and authentic. One drawback is that reservations are not accepted and waits are common.

The food was excellent - I had shrimp & garlic & my husband had shrimp with red sauce. We both had plantains & mixed veggies. We went there with a friend who highly recommended it. I would definitely go back for more!

It's food you can make at home. Go when you don't feel like cooking. I did like the empanades app. Took home the leftovers and didn't eat it next day.

There are a lot of Cuban restaurants in South Florida. Although the menu lists dishes you may have seen elsewhere this is where you can get those dishes the way they should be prepared! We have eaten here several times and I have never heard anyone at the table say anything bad about what they ordered. I can't even think... More

Excellent food! Very tasty and authentic. I highly recommend the empanadas! The prices are reasonable, however even though the servers are friendly, the service is a bit slow.

Had a wonderful lunch ~ Camarines Enchiladas which is shrimp cooked in a light tomato sauce seasoned with fresh ground garlic, olive oil and white wine. Absolutely wonderful! Hubby had Higados de Pollo ~ chicken livers grilled with onions and loved it. The food is so very fresh, wonderfully seasoned, timed and beautifully presented. Our waitress, though very friendly, was... More

Went to Padrinos tonight with the family. First strike is when the waiter brings my salad but never brought flatware or napkins. Waited a few minutes for him to return where upon he asked how the salad was... Really? Ok, small waste of time but at least it gave the salad plate a chance to cool down. Strike two: dinners...

Came here for dinner based on recommendation of some friends. The food was ok, nothing spectacular, nothing bad. However, the service was awful. Took nearly an hour to get our food even though the waitress repeatedly said it was just a few more minutes after 15min had elapsed. When the food finally arrived, was missing a couple side dishes, which... More
