Was guided to this place by our concierge at The Diplomat. I could not have been happier. First time at a Cuban restaurant. Loved the Cubano appetizer (sample platter) and it was a great start. Had the strip steak and a carafe of the sangria. Highly recommend both! The Cuban sandwich was also very good.

This is a very fine restaurant with a family atmosphere. Went two times during our visit to Hollywood. Menu has great choices and prices are very fair. The staff, specially Daniel y Alma Patricia, are welcoming and attentive. Food was great.

Flavorful. Delicious. Not fast! Some of the best food we had in Hollywood was at Padrino's. Perfectly seasoned, incredibly tender meats and all the side options you might want (white rice, yellow rice, rice and black beans, and more!) Service was slow, but friendly, and we figured it was due more to being on "island time" than incompetence. Wish we... More

When we arrived, we could not have been received more graciously. The employees were even worried if we sat outside, we'd be subject to the Zika virus! (We decided to stay inside.) My wife had paella and I had a steak special. The waiter suggested topping the steak with shrimp. Both entrees as well as the sides were wonderful. Absolutely... More

I am staying at The Crowne Plaza in Hollywood for a conference. I asked about great, but affordable local food within reasonable walking distance. I was referred to Padrino's. I ordered the Lechon Asado at the suggestion of the waitress. It was awesome! The pork was so tender that it melted in my mouth. The pork abs onions were both... More

Since I do not live in Florida any longer and crave Cuban food, this is the best! It's not only the cleanest, courteous, polite, delicious and most inviting South Florida has to offer. The arroz com pollo, plantains, palimono steak are amongst my favorites. Each time I visit it seems to be better. It's great for a romantic dinner to... More

My parents used to live nearby. I came to visit them at least once every year and we always made sure to eat here. We haven't been to this area in 3 years, but we are here now for 3 days and 'yes' we came for dinner. As usual, the meal was excellent and we ended it with the best... More
