We had two lovely meals at El Padrino's recently, the food is delicious and service very good. It's gets very busy here so try to get there early. The prawns & avocado are excellent, pork fillet with pepper sauce, stroganoff and steak with béarnaise sauce are all recommended. Portions are very large so no room for desert!

The place was packed the evening we were there and the staff seemed to be on first name terms with many customers. Like Swankie we got the last table too. Out starters - garlic prawns and prawn and avocado salad were excellent. My wife had pork fillet and I had fish - both were excellent and large portions. You won't leave this restaurant felling hungry. Service was good and reasonably quick considering how busy it was. House wine was cheap and pleasant tasting. Nice family restaurant - just make sure you've got a good appetite before you arrive!

We spent a night in Puerto de la Cruz in December and stumbled across El Padrino. At 7.45 pm we got the last table. It was packed - I suspect with regulars.

We had first class fish dishes. My John Dory fillet with almonds and Bearnaise sauce was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. We had the house wine which was cheap and drinkable but if we returned we'd splash out a few Euros more for a bottle.

Overall, a good honest family restaurant serving great fresh food.

Thank Swankie

We have visited this restaurant for many years and can say that a better fillet steak cannot be found anywhere else! Everything they serve is top notch and the staff are efficient and friendly.

Have been here a few times now and unlike some other restaurants As there are a few to choose from , every meal has been delicious with great service. The only thing I would say is just a little to much on plate at times , a delight to taste buds.
