If you go there, try to go the 2nd Saturday for lunch where they serve a traditional Cuban Roast pig with all the fixings. I'm talking about the head, snout, sauce and of course cracklin... Yeah it raised my cholesterol but damn, it's worth it. It comes as a buffet and it was superb. Everyone else ordered off the menu... More

Wanting a break from the overly commercial restaurants in the Disney and Universal strips, we attended with a large group of eight. Everybody was very happy with their dishes. Excellent service in a nice setting. My lechón asado was succulent. Tasty and tender. Ropa vieja was also very good and the ribs spectacular. Highly recommended.

We went to check out this highly rated restaurant and found that they had a pig roast buffet going on. It was great. My first time trying Yuca, not to be confused with Yucca. It was very good as well as the pork and fried plantains. Very nice place with reasonable prices.

We stopped here for dinner while in Orlando for a conference. We started with the sampler appetizer. I had the coconut shrimp and the others in our party ordered the ropa veiro or padillo. All of it was excellent. Well prepared, the right temperature, and brought to the table at the appropriate times. The Cuban black beans were very good!... More

Delicious meals & nice atmosphere. Have roast pig buffet every 2nd Tuesday of the month, so sad I won't be available to enjoy this buffet.

We have eaten at several Cuban and other similar Latin restaurants. We were very pleased by the quality of food, serving sizes, atmosphere, and wait staff friendliness. The next time we visit Orlando, we will return.

This was our first time eating authentic Cuban. The waitress and the owner explained to us about the different types of food choices we had. We go the Cuban sampler and two nice entrees. This gave us a lot of different types of Cuban food to taste. The food was well prepared and very good. We will be back here... More

Everyone had the Churrasco Skirt Steak and it was amazing! My husband and I don't eat much Cuban food, so this was a treat. I actually really liked the fried plantains too, which was a surprise. We also had the Cuban appetizer sampler, and again, everything was good. These are just not flavors/foods that we get every day. We would... More

With a long list of positive press and great reviews since its opening, Padrinos Cuban Bistro prides itself on preparing authentic Cuban dishes ranging from Palomilla Steak and Seafood Paella, to the original style Cuban sandwich. Also well known for their signature desserts, the restaurant can offers favorites such as the Cuban Flan and Tres Leches, a homemade semi-sponge cake saturated in a sweet combination of three milks.
