I've gone multiple times and always get the same thing- why mess with a good thing? Highly recommend the chuletas de Puerco at the Orlando location. The flavor is great, huge portions, and delicious drinks as well. I've also tried the ropa vieja which is great as well but again- highly recommend the pork chops.

While in Florida we wanted to eat some good Cuban food. Found this place and we absolutely lived it!! My husband said that it was the best pork dish he had ever eaten. The portions were big and the plantain chips were so good!!! Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!!

First time visiting Padrinos, went to lunch with a colleague and ordered the Sandwich Cubano. The restaurant was clean, atmosphere was pleasant, the service was friendly and quick. The brought fried plantain for us to munch on while we waited. I ordered the sandwich Cubano. It was very good. I will come back.

I was reluctant to go there since one member of our group was born and raised in Cuba... but even she loved it! Service was as great as the food, though I was perplexed to find the place was only moderately crowded for a Friday night. It was explained to me that the area (Hunter's Creek) is chocked full of...

Brought my friend here for his 50th Birthday he loved it. He had the stewed lamb and I had the Paella. The food was DELICIOUS! The portions were more than enough and the prices were even better. The staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend.

When friends suggested we go there for dinner, I was surprised because it was 20 miles away. There are so many restaurants closer to where I live. Now that I have been there, I want to go back. it is worth the drive. The restaurant was crowded but we did not have to wait. When we first entered, I was... More

Started with ham croquetas that were crispy on the outside and oozing with tasty ham on the inside! The vaca frita, yucca and maduros were cooked to perfection. The meat was tender and savory. Even the cafecito at the end was yummy. !Bien hecho!

The food was very well prepared. Roasted chicken was perfectly seasoned as well as the black beans. Overall an elegant atmosphere with very well prepared standard Cuban fare.

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.
