Went with 4 people, two had the chicken with black beans and rice, I had the whole fish with mixed white rice/black beans called Arroz Moros, and one had the braised lamb shanks a special. Everyone loved everything, they looked at my plate and all that was left was the bones. Absolutely delicious!!! The only thing that I can say... More

I had to be in 441 and realized I was going to be near Padrino's and got all excited. I ordered a Pan Con Bistec (Cuban steak sandwich). To my dismay and utter disappointment, what I received was NOT a Pan con Bistec. This was not on Cuban bread - which is a must, it did not have the papitas... More

Standard Cuban food. Smaller menu than other local Cuban places. Very small fish selection. Food was fine. Nothing special. I believe there are better local Cuban restaurants in the area. Limited dessert menu. Best items were the daily specials, but our server did not volunteer them.

I saw some negative reviews on here for this restaurant and that was not my experience. I had a great Mojito and my meal as delish. I am of Cuban heritage and live in Central Florida where Cuban food is not as easy to find. I was delighted and enjoyed my meal very much. Our waitress was also very attentive.

After reading all the good reviews my husband and I figured we'd try some Cuban food in Boca after having enjoyed it so much elsewhere. Went on a Fri night, place was crowded but we were seated right away. Server was pleasant but slow with the drink order. Husband ordered the paella, I ordered the pollo asado. Food took forever...

Our dinner of yesterday was quite disappointing! The three palomilla steaks were overcooked in spite of requesting them medium, the rice and beans were also over cooked and the service was low quality. Will not go back to this restaurant.

😐 I'm sorry, but I didn't like it much! Mi family and I ate from the buffet ; I honestly do not think that it was "real Cuban food ". I sincerely believe that the cooks are not Cubans . Is not that the food was bad, it's that It was missing the Cuban seasoning. The fish was from 1-10:... More

This restaurant is in the corner of Mission Bay plaza but don't let its location fool you. It is always consistent and one of the best Cuban meals you will ever have. Black beans that scream flavor, bistec de pollo that make you wish it never ended! Just flat out delicious. AND don't forget cafe cubano after lunch or dinner!!!... More

I've visited Padrino's twice already and I'm definitely going back! I absolutely loved the churrasco with rice, beans, and sweet plantains. The cuban coffee is to die for too! Love everything about Padrino's!

My son made the suggestion to stop at Padrino's while we were visiting Orlando late March. I was thanking my son Noel the rest of the day. We had the best Cuban sandwiches both of us have ever eaten. The plantains were full of flavor and we tried an appetizer sampler platter. Another excellent choice by my son Noel. If... More
