Great ambiance & delicious Mexican food. Reasonably priced & generous portions. It doesn't get much better than this

We have had a lot of great Mexican food and this wasn't even mediocre it was awful. From discolored guac, white/reddish tomatoes, canned beans, dry steak tacos and bitter margaritas we were REALLY disappointed. Do not waste your money here.

We visit San Juan and stay in the the Condado neighborhood frequently. We always visit Cielito Lindo. It's an unpretentious but welcoming family-owned restaurant right across from La Concha. You'll often see the family at table, too! The Mexican food is good, the prices are very reasonable for Condado, and the service is good as well. It's a good value... More

Great place for Mexican food in el Condado. It is not too expensive and there is always space available. The food is good and the service. Good sauce for the chips. I recommend it.

There were not very many people in the restaurant when we arrived. Decided to try anyway. Service was scarce. We had to find people & ask for things, as they did not come by ...wait, they passed by often. Did they stop to check on us for needs? nope. Husband ordered combination plate. Chicken was very bland, Guac was ok.... More

our plane landed on a Friday and our hotel was around the block, We enjoyed the family atmosphere and the food was good with nice portions. The very nice hostess was the owner's daughter and was very helpful. The frozen Margaritas were nice and they had different flavors. The only bad thing that we found was it is only open... More

After a few days in PR, my friends and I were looking for a restaurant outside of our hotel with good portions and good food. We found this restaurant while walking down the street and are so glad we stayed. We ordered the enchiladas divorciadas and the tacos. The plates were HUGE and we hardly made a dent, but the...

We went for lunch at 11:20, they open at 11:30 but they let us in. We ordered several different Mexican dishes & all of them were very tasty, fresh and not that spicy. The service was prompt and courteous. Talking with the waiter we learn that they've been in business for 27 years. We think that only good Restaurants last... More
