Great local find!

My husband, parents, brother, sister-in-law and I found this place while walking around close to out hotel (Marriott Stellaris). The salsa, margaritas, guacamole, and service were all awesome! Our waiter, Gilberto, was on top of everything and made fantastic recommendations. The only reason I gave... read more

Got recommended by a local guide and went because it was a very busy night everywhere. We were really pleasantly surprised by how good the food is, and the service is very friendly. Perfect place for a change of pace while staying in Condado.

Had dinner here and was notably impressed! Our server was attentive and friendly. The salsa had just the right amount of bite And a unique smoky flavor. I had a combo dinner #1. The taco was aa little bland but there was so much food and the rest was so good it didn't matter. The beans really were amazing. It... More

Cielito Lindo was a well rated restaurant close by our hotel during our stay in San Juan. Arrived to the restaurant and my wife and I each had a michelada. Drinks were good, and we proceeded to order. The menu has an excellent variety, but in my personal opinion the prices are a little steep on some of the items.... More

My wife and I walked across the street from our hotel for a late lunch. The lunch specials were very reasonably priced, the service was quick, and we enjoyed the food we ordered. It is definitely worth checking out if you are staying somewhere on Condado Beach. Both of us agreed - we would come back.

We ate at this place two out of our four days in San Juan. The food was excellent and the staff attentive. The restaurant had an authentic vibe and the food was no different. We would definitely go back here if we ever had the chance!

My friend and I thought we came for happy hour but the small print was shady and our "happy hour" drinks weren't included...therefore it's expensive to drink here without the discount. We had fun but towards the end realized we're had been taken advantage of. Good drinks, too expensive price.

My friends and I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the service and the prices. I went to Celito Lindo several times during my two month stay in PR and tried many different dishes and was not disappointed with any of them. The mole sauce was fantasic and I really enjoyed it. The portions were huge and I wasn't able... More

My friends and I have eaten here various times. It is close to LA Concha hotel and in the center of Condado, San Juan. I ordered and loved the enchiladas de pollo with green sauce.! There is good service too. The lunch specials are a great price!
