Description: Cielito Lindo has their beginning in the spring of 1985 when we opened our first restaurant in Pompano Beach. Then, as now, each dish was faithfully created from favorite recipes passed down from generation to generation and brought with us from Mexico. Over the years, we have taken great pride in offering our guests fine foods of Mexico prepared and served with dedication to the best of Mexico's traditions. New dishes are constantly bring created and adapted for your enjoyment and dining pleasure. Our popular "Especialidades de la Casa" reflects the high quality long associated with Cielito Lindo Restaurants, and now seafood dishes, "Pescado del Mar," compliment our new Cielito Lindo Restaurants. Welcome to Cielito Lindo's. Enjoy your visit, and come again soon.

We'd found this place last year and loved it, but couldn't remember the name...were craving Mexican, looked up another place and were on our way there when, WHOOPS! We found Cielito Lindo again and it was better than we remembered! We're from the DC area, where there are many fine Mexican restaurants but the food at this place beats them all, hands down! Sure, the decor is tired, and it's in a funky part of town, but with food this good, who cares?!? The manager was even getting chewed out on the phone by another customer (for what, I cannot imagine) and kept his cool. The staff are great. Can't recommend it highly enough.

The restaurant is located in a warehouse district, but the food and service were out of this world. It seemed like most of the wait staff do not speak english, but they were always there taking care of you. The salsa that came with the chips was so good, I licked the bowl, like a child. Another table's waitress saw me and went running off to get me another bowl of salsa the size of a cereal bowl. I never said a word to her. The menu is extensive. So much to choose from, Mexican, Spainish and Cuban. The drinks were amazing as well and they packed a punch, so they are not stingy. This place is fabulous. The burritos, quesadias, enchilladas, just fabulous. I can't wait to go back next year when we go on vacation. This place is an unbelievable home run.

Dinner's are delicious and reasonably priced. Can usually get a table without a wait. I like Mexican food and my spouse likes Cuban food so this is one of our favorite restaurants. Enjoy!
