From the moment you walk in, there is a warm, personable feel to the restaurant and the staff greeting and serving you. The food is delicious, the Sangria is excellent and the ambiance is great for both personal and business purposes. I had the Mariquitas with garlic to start off and then had the Palomilla (a personal favorite). If you... More

This is either our 3rd or 4th time at Padrino's. We were seated immediately. Sherolay was our friendly waitress. I had the special Calamari and spouse had the roasted pork sandwich and each of had a beer. Total bill was $21.75 plus a nice tip! The sandwich was so large that we took half of the Pork Sandwich and had... More

If you can tell how good a restaurant is by the number of natives dining, then Padrino's must be good. Lots of families having a good time. Good selection of food and cocktails. Among the dishes we really liked were the soups, caldo gallegos and black bean, both really hearty and flavorful. The entrees that stood out were the lechon... More

We were recently staying for a couple of nights in Plantation, prior to taking a Panama Canal cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. We headed out from the hotel looking for a deli at a nearby mall, which ended up being further away than we wanted to walk. We came across this amazing restaurant (Padrino's) and, never having had Cuban food,... More

Have been here a few times each time getting the paella. The dish is salty but tasty. I have not been able to finish the large serving.

We are snowbirds and one of the things we look forward to is eating at Padrinos. The staff from the hostess to the wait staff are all friendly and professional, and of course the food is outstanding and the portion is great!!

I had been to Padrino's a few times for lunch and for dinner. I was not impressed. The food was OK, but not memorable. Then, a client took me there for the lunch buffet. Now, it's the only time I go. They offer an array of dishes. Pork, chicken, fish, beans, rice, plantains, yuca, and salad are always included. No... More

We have eaten at multiple Cuban restaurants over the years and Padrino's is consistently good! It's our go to place when we want authentic Cuban food!

Large dining room, comfortable atmosphere. Good Food, sometimes they have live music. Good prices. My favorite is the chicken with the grilled onions, the sweet plantains.
