1930'S

It all began with a small food market and winery in 1930’s Cuba. This storefront was the meeting place for locals to visit, and catch up on the latest news. With the rise of Castro's Cuba in 1968, Diosdado Padrino sent his wife, Candida Rosa and two children to the United States.

 

1976

this was a milestone year for the Padrino family as they opened their first restaurant in Hialeah. The same recipes that Rosa cooked in Cuba were now being enjoyed by many immigrant Cubans in Miami. Seeing the opportunity to bring the tastes of Cuba to everyone, they moved to a larger restaurant in Broward County. Padrino’s Hallandale beach opened its doors in 1981.

the tradition was passed on to their son, Mario. With the desire to share these authentic Cuban recipes to an even larger market, Mario and his wife Nayade opened restaurants in Plantation in 1992, Boca Raton in 1996 and Orlando in 2008.

 

 2017

Within the last few years the third generation of Padrino’s have come on board in Laura, Mario and Eduardo. Together they have opened their newest location in Fort Lauderdale and will open another in Dania Beach in 2018.
