Went to Padrino's this past Saturday with family. The food is very good, large portions and friendly service. Average plate is around $15 and this is for main course and two or three sides included. The Mojito is excellent and the flan and cortadito very good. Only fall back is that they don't take reservations and we had a bit of a wait.

This is a must on every visit we make to the area. Lunch and dinner are always excellent. The service is always attentive and while not fancy, the place is very comfortable.
We've never had a bad dish here. The plantain chips are great as a starter.
You can't go wrong in this long established restaurant.

We (a couple with a 2-year old child) ate here as the restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel and we had to visit Walmart which was just across the street. This restaurant seems to be a small chain with 4 locations.

This is a cheap family restaurant with exceptionally quick service (they are definitely not cooking your order from scratch). Our waitress did not write down our order and missed the appetizers until we mentioned it so we received the appetizer after the main course. The restaurant was practically empty but we felt like we were being rushed out.

I thought the food was ok but not spectacular but my husband disliked it and ended up with digestive issues the next day. There were some Cuban dishes on the menu but most of the menu was more average family restaurant-style. As we have been to Cuba a couple of times on vacation plus have been to Cuban restaurants in Toronto, we knew this was pretty watered down Cuban fare. The sangria was cheap, though.

However, it is a decent place to take a family plus it is cheap and clean so a marginal thumbs up. The place is fairly spacious and accommodate larger groups.

We ate at Padrino's two times during our 10 day stay in the area. The Mojito is a must!! Very delicious. The plaintain appetizer is a generous size (4 of us shared), and it is good. The main dishes were also generous sized servings and everyone enjoyed their meals. Service is friendly.
