Although the restaurant is not anything fancy, the food was very good as well as the service. Good variety of Mexican and Spanish foods. Also good selection of margaritas and other flavoured drinks with a healthy dose of acholol. We would definitely go back.

We really enjoyed our meal at Cielito Lindo. The environment is not overly fancy, which was perfect for what we wanted that evening. The food was satisfying and delicious, and we loved the Friday margarita deal! Great service, too.

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.
