Food here is great! Although, I'm not a fan of their mofongo. I had the seafood risotto last time and it was excellent. We've been twice recently. My boyfriend enjoyed his red snapper special last time we went. Both myself and a friend did not care for the mofongo though. The chicken soup is delicious! The staff is nice and... More

This was our first spot that we decided to eat for dinner, the place is super small (not a big deal), however, we were never greeted and were told to just sit anywhere(ok?!) So as we sat it took them FOREVER literally to get waiter over for a drink order...after that long wait to get drinks, we weren't sure if... More

This place is in a small strip mall in Isla Verde just down from the El San Juan Hotel and Casino. It was a very casual place to eat. My husband had a glass of wine and I ordered a cocktail. We decided to order the Mofongo- an authentic Puerto Rican dish. I ordered the chicken mofongo and my husband... More

My husband and I dined one evening at Mi Casita because we found a 10% discount coupon and it was very near the ESJ Towers where we were staying. We found the food to be mediocre, the service poor and the rest room was absolutely filthy. I could not even use it. Just awful, loud, noisy and not clean. Stay... More

Recommended by the young hotel staff at the beach as to where the locals eat We had garlic shrimps which comes with rice bean and plantain.. All was delicious at much lower prices than tourists restaurants in the area. Ps. 1/2 of the clientele were locals

We ate here twice because it was convenient to our hotel. We ate breakfast one day and lunch another. Same waitress both days so she wasn't just having a bad day, she was a bad waitress. Most of the service in San Juan was not very good and this wasn't any different. I had the lasagna one day which was... More

Perfect amount of food for perfect price especially for breakfast. We ate breakfast there almost every day because it was so good and didn't leave us feeling heavy. Every server we had was attentive and more than helpful in both English and Spanish.

After hearing this place was good I decided to give it a try. The service is not very good. I waited over 5 minutes for my water to atrive after ordering a drink. I had to ask for it a second time before it was delivered. I ordered the octopus appetizer but cant tell you how it was because it... More
