Excellent food, decent service

Extremely close 30-second walk from La Concha in Condado. We ate outside which probably hampered service a little. It took a couple trips to finally get table service, refills on water were slow in coming, and it seemed like the food took a little while though the place wasn't too busy this... read more

I ordered a Tampiqueno meal (large skirt steak, enchilada, rice & beans). This meal was excellent! It took a long time to prepare and we waited for at least 40 minutes, but it was well worth the time. They gave us a lot of chips and salsa.

Close to our hotel, Coral Princess. We went for an early dinner. I had steak tacos. The guac was so yummy and fresh, the refried beans great. The only negative was the guy singing - we walked in with him and he was way too invasive. We were trying to enjoy our dinner and his music but if you gave... More

While staying at the La Concha hotel, the staff recommended we try Cielito Lindo which was right around the corner and within walking distance of the hotel. The establishment was clean, inviting and we were seated right away. They have a huge menu with lots of different dishes to try. We started with a queso fundido (delicious), guacamole and their...

We stopped here for late lunch after the movies. The food was great, the service was friendly, but unfortunately felt rushed through the entire time. A shame cause I'm the kind that keeps ordering if given the time. But overall this is a good place to eat. I would be back.

My wife and I ate late lunch there one rainy afternoon after researching the nearby Mexican places. We made the short walk and were pleasantly greeted and seated. The menu is extensive, with most things you would expect. I am a fan of moles and was thrilled to see that Cielito Lindo had one. It was delicious and my wife... More

My husband and I ate dinner at this delightful mexican restaurant one night during our San Juan, PR vacation over Christmas 2014. The food is authentic mexican and is very good. We will definitely return.

Cute place across from the hotel highly recommended by hotel staff. Clean upbeat place with pleasant staff and positive attitudes. But, the food, was unbeatable. Had the carnitas burrito..to die for..best I have ever had. The enchilada verdes are great! Attentive staff, good prices...you need to go there!
