Went with my son for a casual dinner and there was a 20-minute wait on a Saturday night. After we were seated we got our drink order fairly quickly but that's where the service ended. It was hard to get her attention through the night...More

The food here was amazing, the staff authentic and friendly, recommend this place highly. For me Cuban food is a hit or miss, this was definitely a hit!! We went to the one near Sunny Isle, not Orlando...

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.

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.
