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

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!

The restaurant was right across from our hotel and right in the middle of where all the action is. So the restaurant has a great margarita list and they are definitely worth having!!! The shredded chicken was phenomenal in all aspects but the best part was the salsa that you have to ask for its not the one they bring... More

Staying at La Concha this was and easy walk across the street for some good Mexican food. A friend and I went and enjoyed everything we ate. We both had different drinks that were all good and we asked for the "mas picante" salsa and that was delicious as well. Our server was helpful, answered questions, brought us everything we... More

Actually it was just steps away from La Concha Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico. But was an outstanding Mexican Restaurant. Their guacamole was fresh and spicy. The salsa was fresh and just right. They had a good selection of Mexican beer. We chose pork burrito, enchiladas and tacos. All were delicious. There was no rushing here either. And though... More
