Quaint, Reasonable & Friendly

A very established local place, with tight seating. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food was good, and the margaritas were very good. Even better they were value-priced. Only critique- too much cheddar cheese used, but maybe there was a mix up in their order.

We've been going to the Cielito Lindo restaurants in Fort Lauderdale for twenty years, so when we had a chance to stop for lunch earlier this month, we jumped on the chance. Neither of us recognized the inside of the restaurant, so I think we've always gone to the other restaurants. This one is small, busy, but excellent. We were... More

The restaurant is small, and very old inside, but the food is great, comes out super fast and good pricing.

I've been here several times and the restaurant does not disappoint. Food and service very good. I'd describe food as a mix between Mexican and Spanish with a touch of Asian thrown in. We've had the enchiladas and arroz Cama pollo. The latter is a great dish of chicken and shrimp smothered with a heaping of yellow rice with salad... More

This restaurant is at an eye catching location -- while on break after shopping for a car my husband and I stopped for lunch at Cielito Lindo, we were disappointed with this restaurant. Nothing compares to taqueria Dona Raquel in the same area with excellent and authentic food including mole. My husband ordered a passable meal and I ordered the... More

Let me start that we're from the southwest so that's the type of Mexican food we are used to. Start with the good. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. The chips were warm which is nice and we were served quickly. My husband ordered enchiladas which he said were ok. Now the not so good. I had the... More
