Great local Dining

This a very local restaurant and a very real example of the cuisine of Puerto Rico. The diners are local families not tourists which is a good reason to come here. The prices are reasonable, the service is good even if the restaurant is full. This restaurant is just steps away from the El San... read more

If you're staying at The Renaissance or El San Juan Hotel, this is the perfect alternative to the hotel's expensive food. They're right across the street from the hotel in the shopping center, behind 24/7 Marketplace. It's a small hole in the wall, local mom and pop place. I've been here about 5 times, and every time I visit it's... More

We went there for breakfast our first morning and I have to say that the service was terrible!!! The proportions was very small and the food was cold!!! We had to ask for our check after we were done eating what little was given to us. So 10 minutes of sitting there with our plates pilled up they finally gave... More

I went to Mi Casita because it was recommended. I was very disappointed. The service was very slow. there was only one waiter who got my order wrong. I ordered Plaintain soup which was horrible and I thought it was better at the ponderosa restaurant in the same area. The stuffed chicken didn't come with any side dishes at all... More

This was a nice little place. My hubby ordered the steak....I was brave and tried the Mofongo. It was a HUGE serving and just ok. I got the chicken and think I would have actually liked it better with the fried pork or beef. It was different to say the least. Our waiter was very nice and chatted a bit... More

We wanted a low key traditional breakfast and thought we would try this place as it was right across from our hotel. We read the reviews and knew to expect slow service. The food was ok and the staff were friendly but they just didn't seem to have it together. Staff just kept moving around very quickly but not accomplishing... More
