We discovered Cielito Lindo walking around the streets of Cozumel. We found here the most delicious Mexican food served in a relaxing atmosphere and with a friendly service.
Jazmin was amazing! She took care of every detail with a sweet smile. Cielito Lindo's food is a magical trip to the roots of Mexico, but with a twist. We visited two times, and we had the most wonderful culinary experiences ever. If you travel to Cozumel you should go to Cielito Lindo, where for sure the owner will be available to talk to you as he did to us on our last night in this amazing island.

I am a local resident of Cozumel, and Cielito Lindo is my favorite restaurant. They have fantastic food, of vourse. It's Mexican food, but a very authentic, deep experience of Mexican food - far beyond the fajitas and nachos available on every corner here.

Secondly, they have achieved a perfect balance of atmosphere. Its on a corner only one block from the waterfront. Usually that means loud music or tv's.....at Cielito Lindo, there is a very chill vibe, often with a guitar player. Its a great ambiance for a special, yet affordable dinner.

The service is top notch. Again, this is often not the case. Fernando and his great staff treat you like family if it's your first visit or your 50th.

Highly, highly recommended!

So good we visited twice on a short stay on the island. We had the four moles, an appetizer that showcases the incredible sauces the kitchen is capable of, which are distinctive of Mexican cuisine. We also had tortilla soup and guacamole, which were excellent, and the chile en nogado, which is a traditional Mexican dish hard to find in the US. It was mouthwatering. The drinks are strong and tasty - I recommend getting the mezcal versions of the drinks - so much more distinctive than the tequila.

Fernando prepared meals for our group of 17 three days at our villa where we were celebrating my sister's and husband's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a first time experience for us all to hire a chef. Besides enjoying his skills at our villa we went to his Bistro one evening for dinner. We had people with many food preferences and Fernando and his staff kept us all happy and well fed and healthy. He has a very diverse menu from which to chose. Thank you so much Fernando for your contribution to our week☺.

Fernando, the owner and chef, was hired to cook meals for our family of 17 in Cozumel for three days. We chose our menu and he came to our VRBO and prepared the meals. They were delicious. He was prompt, professional, and friendly. We enjoyed fabulous, gourmet food. One night we drove into San Miguel and ate at his restaurant. Again the food was beautifully prepared and presented. The menu was varied and original. Eat at Cielito Lindo for a wonderful dining experience!
