Lunch buffet was a great value at $10.99. Lots of variety and the food was vey good. One of our group got the Cuban sandwich instead of the buffet and said it was very good. I will definitely return when I am in town.

We travel to and through Ft. Lauderdale several times a year, whenever possible we plan our trip to include lunch at Padroni's. This trip was no exception. The food, as usual was very good. The service however, was a different story. We were not in a hurry, but also, we did not want to spend the afternoon in the restaurant.... More

New to Cuban cuisine other than a Cuban sandwich, I found Padrino's to have an extensive menu,with a very good variety of choices. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
