My wife and I ate here with optimistic but open minded expectations. We ordered their seafood and conch entrees. The conch was not too bad but was a bit overdone. (Chewy) The seafood was terrible, my wife tried to eat a few pieces but had a horrified look on her face. I switched plates with her to see how bad... More

Enjoyed Chicken Monfongo and Pork Chops after a long day of traveling. It was a short walk from the Embassy Suites and near all the hotels on Isla Verde Avenue. Generous potions at a fair price. I would definitely return to try other menu items.

We stayed at the Intercontinental with family where the food was just so-so and the prices were outrageous (certainly for the quality). The food and service at Mi Casita was great and very authentic. And you cannot beat the prices. It is worth walking across the street for lunch!

The restaurant is located near the beautiful Vendanzo Resort in San Juan in the Plazoleta de Isla Verde. We went for breakfast because of their offers and had a delicious meal. We decided to return for dinner and Deni was our waiter. He was extremely helpful with our choices and made wonderful suggestions which allowed us to try some local... More

We dined as a group and had a wonderful local Puerto Rican meal. The Wine Sangria the Salmon in Mango Sauce were memorable.

$2.99 for a great made-to-order breakfast. So close to the big hotels, just walk across the street. Friendly owner too.

This place was always packed with people coming and going. The food was very good. They specialize in Monfongo a Puerto Rican dish made with plantains. This is good as well as the steak and pork sandwiches.
