A surprising invitation that we gladly accepted to spend more family time together. The place looks nice but nothing exquisitely Cuban. It was my first experience with plantain chips; most likely not my thing, because they were actually devoured by the rest of our group. Cocktails were good enough to order a second round! As my main course, I ordered... More

Upmarket looking and a nice large restaurant. Service was nice but that's where it stopped. I ordered a draft beer and it came back flat and lifeless. The food portions were on the small side and then the slow cooked pork I ordered was dry and hard. Not a good experience as it was pricey for Cuban food. Try Sofritos... More

Our family stopped into Padrinos after arriving in Orlando. We tried the croquetas as an appetizer and several entrees. My Pollo Asado was amazing. The chicken was marinated in herbs and was tender, moist and very flavorful. Everyone had to try some. The mohitos were delicious. The service very good, she was friendly, helpful and visited the table frequently. We... More

My adult daughter and I ate hear last Sunday. There was a Japan Festival outside their doors, but they were oblivious and obviously understaffed. We were told there was a 20 minute wait and we were ok with that. However, there was no service in terms bar while we waited. We were seated in about 25 minutes. It was 3:08.... More

We have come here for about five years, and the food is always top notch. We are Cuban and the recipes are true old Cuban recipes. I've had the Paellas, creole shrimp, pork roast, Cuban flan, tres leches,chicken soup, mofongo,.... Everything is wonderful. The staff is Hispanic, but never a Cuban. Friday's and Saturdays there is live entertainment; usually a... More

Came here with some friends for lunch after a long day of travel. The food was ok, nothing spectacular but nothing bad. The plantain chips were just ok. My dish was alright. Eh, it was just okay.

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.
