Awesome Cuban restaurant located in a newer strip mall. Service is excellent. Staff are friendly and food is spot-on. Happy drink and appetizer specials are a nice bonus.

We usually go to Padrino's in Hallandale but since we were in Orlando we thought that we would give it a try.

I find them to be a bit pricey for the quality in food. I've tasted better Cuban cuisine. I would say the taste is average. Atmosphere is nice.

We were actually going to a nearby NYPD Pizza on a rather late hour for us to have dinner, but that store had apparently closed. So we walked a few feet, saw people in a good mood eating in an inviting space and entered Padrino's....More

Padrino's is the real deal. Having traveled to Cuba I have enjoyed the real Cuban food and Padrino's brings it to Orlando. Everything is fresh. The choices are excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

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.
