Reviews for Madrina's

Best Cuban/tiki cocktails in town! Madrina's is an intimate, quaint cocktail bar in downtown Gainesville that has delicious drinks. The owner of the bar I believe has done training in Cuba at The Floridita, which is famous for their daiquiris (Hemingway's favorite bar). The owner has brought his knowledge to FL and allowed peons like myself to enjoy quality cocktails. If you're feeling a celebration with a group of friends, ya gotta get the chupacabra in the full review
Sometimes my reviews are lengthy this won't be one of those. There is not a whole lot to say about Madrina's except the bartenders are pretty cool and they know how to make a good drink. We went in for drinks after a dinner date and it was the perfect topper to a great evening. I had not been there before and I liked the atmosphere immediately! It is a little loud, but I fit right in just about anyplace where the bartender can look you straight in the eye and full review

I don’t normally frequent bars or drink alcohol, but I LOVED their matcha colada. I also tried their banana daiquiri which was also really good! As others have mentioned, it is a relatively small spot, but definitely worth squeezing into
