Excellent food! Very tasty and authentic. I highly recommend the empanadas! The prices are reasonable, however even though the servers are friendly, the service is a bit slow.

Had a wonderful lunch ~ Camarines Enchiladas which is shrimp cooked in a light tomato sauce seasoned with fresh ground garlic, olive oil and white wine. Absolutely wonderful! Hubby had Higados de Pollo ~ chicken livers grilled with onions and loved it. The food is so very fresh, wonderfully seasoned, timed and beautifully presented. Our waitress, though very friendly, was... More

Went to Padrinos tonight with the family. First strike is when the waiter brings my salad but never brought flatware or napkins. Waited a few minutes for him to return where upon he asked how the salad was... Really? Ok, small waste of time but at least it gave the salad plate a chance to cool down. Strike two: dinners...

Came here for dinner based on recommendation of some friends. The food was ok, nothing spectacular, nothing bad. However, the service was awful. Took nearly an hour to get our food even though the waitress repeatedly said it was just a few more minutes after 15min had elapsed. When the food finally arrived, was missing a couple side dishes, which... More

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise. The food was cooked to perfection and the portions were substantial. We were 14 senior ladies and everyone enjoyed their meal. The menu was not huge but there were plenty of choices and most came with three sides. I thought the prices were quite good for this neighborhood. We had one young server and... More

I've been here numerous times. It never disappoints! The churrasco steak is my favorite dish. The black beans are always consistent and very tasty! And of course, for dessert, the flan is the best you can get.

We went for the Cuban sandwich but got disappointed. It was mostly a cold ham sandwich...no shredded pork,not melted, bland cheese....cold sandwich. Coconut mojito was very good but won't come back for just that.

As a Cuban living in Boca Raton, Padrino's has been a regular part of my dining schedule since it opened in Boca. While the amount of garlic has been toned down for the American palate, the menu represents an authentic range of Cuban food. While the Cuban Sandwich is disappointing because it doesn't use real Cuban Bread, the lunch buffet... More
