Wonderful Cuban Food in Orlando. This restaurant serves great food in an unrushed atmosphere. The food is very reasonably priced with wonderful service. I can always recommend this restaurant.

My mahi-mahi was a little too done but the overall meal was good. Hot plantain chips with excellent sauce. The margarita was good and the prices don't break your budget. I would go again!

No music at lunchtime. Borderline at best for authentic Cuban cooking. Not the best in the Orlando area. Would not return at lunch, might try a dinner menu. Very long drive to south of Orlando city. Maybe we'rew spoiled by authetic cuban restaurants in Miami.

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.
