Had a very nice lunch - service was very attentive and the food was great. We shared the Cuban appetizers and had the Piccadillo (sp?) a chicken and rice and a tilapia lunch. Good variety on the menu.

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.
