The food here is okay, the service is okay, but they don't exactly speak great English, so the experience is not so special. Menu selections are standard, so that's good, but not in a rush to go back, or even recommend.More

Been a few years since I last ate here, and not much has changed in the interim. Still my favourite Mexican eatery. You'd need a huge appetite to finish your meal, as its plentiful, and very tasty. Not a fancy establishment, but the food more...More

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.
