Padrino’s Cuban Cuisine is one family’s labor of love spanning several generations. It all began in 1930 in Cuba with a little food market. During the rise of Castro, Padrino’s family decided to immigrate to Florida in 1968. They opened their very first restaurant in Hialeah. Thanks to their popularity, in 1981 they decided to open another restaurant in Hallandale Beach.
Today, the goal of Mario Padrino and his wife, Nayade, is to provide authentic Cuban dishes to their customers in a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. The family side of this business is felt through friendly service and a great selection of affordable dishes. Among the most popular are the arroz relleno and the pollo relleno bistec consisting of two chicken breasts stuffed with ham and mozzarella cheese – a real treat!
For meat lovers, the churrasco steak is a must. Those with a sweet tooth must try the pastel de limon, Padrino’s version of the traditional Florida Key lime pie. Enjoy Cuban cuisine with the best mojitos and margaritas in town.
There’s nothing better than tasting unique dishes carried on from generation to generation in a comfortable, caring family-owned restaurant.
