I always try to stop here for dinner when I'm vacationing in Ft. Lauderdale. Delicious food, strong drinks, and a nice place to hang out with friends. They never rush you out the door. Cozy atmosphere and a friendly staff. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a place where the locals go - this is it. Visit Shawna and the locals in the bar for a great happy hour. The Mexican food is great!

save your money it is awful. The chicken soup had to have come from a can. The quesadillas were vile and the only thing worth eating was the salsa, but that is free anyhow.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.
