First time visiting this restaurant and it was great! The food is very authentic and the servings are generous. Service was great too! If you are ever craving real Mexican this is the place to go!!! Will definitely be heading back.

I've been to Cielito Lindo several times & have never been disappointed. It's not a classy place BUT if you crave Mexican, it hits the mark. I intend to go more often. And, if you haven't been, give it a go. You'll love it 👍👍👍

Home cooked meals in a family run restaurant. Dad and mom in the kitchen, while son serves. We eat here at least twice a month. The food is great, the price is right, My wife loves the Basa fish, while I'm a fan of the Burrito.

I feel like we are on vacation in Mexico and walked into a family restaurant. The lovely lady that runs the place is worth the price of admission. She cares and the food reflects her passion.

This a small intimate restaurant but the food tastes like we are still in Mexico. The portions are reasonable, selection is varietied and the prices are reasonable. Staff are friendly and very attentive. I was meeting a friend after a 3 month absence so we sat and talked after eating. The wait staff did not complain, checked on us periodically... More

The food was excellent here. If you want authentic Mexican in Pickering, it's the place to go and the prices are fair. Be patient with the wait staff. Not the best service and there is a language barrier but the food is worth it! I had the Tobasco combo. The green tomatillo sauce was on point. Great servings as well.

Food was very nice, really authentic. We had the Enchilladas and the Chimichanga. It was perfectly cooked.

Been here many times and will continue coming here. It's hard to find authentic Mexican food in the GTA.
