Popular isn't always best

Lots of people recommended this place so thought we would give it try. The wait to get seated was pretty bad considering I was on a cruise and time is limited. Being a big guy it wasn't very comfortable but the waitress got me a chair which made it 100% better. Chips and Salsa were pretty tasty... read more

Recommended by many of the locals and now we know why. We had sizzling fajitas, homemade pozole (non-greasy), fresh chips and salsa and dynamite margaritas and mojitos. We're eating here again today!

As far as Mexican food goes, this is not at all the Mexican food I grew up enjoying. It was a nice attempt, the decor was festive, the servers were pleasant, but the food was just okay and the margarita I'd been looking forward to all day was a miserable attempt. Overall a lovely atmosphere, but not somewhere I intend... More

Good, quick, Mexican food, at a pretty good price. Overall, the service and atmosphere is nothing outstanding, but the food is good. Try the grilled corn!

A beautiful, festive décor greets you as you enter the restaurant. Our server was prompt and friendly. The chips and salsa delivered to our table seemed freshly made, however the salsa was way too mild for our taste. My Baja fish tacos came double wrapped which is my preference , however once again the fish was rather bland. My spouse... More

This is a great like Mexican place just off the main beaten path. The service is fast and friendly and the food was good. They keep a big bowl of tortilla chips and salsa for you at the table....the price for the food is not bad for Catalina either. Saw another table with Margaritas......the couple said they were good and... More

If you are craving Mexican food, this is a good spot to visit. I ordered a bean burrito and it was tasty. Enjoyed the bowl of tortilla chips. The service was fast and friendly. Decent food at a decent price for the area.

We’d eaten here before on a previous visit to Catalina and had a great dinner. So, a bit parched from shopping, we stopped to enjoy a HUGE margarita and some ice-cold beers. Chips and salsa were delicious.

Four of us stopped by Mi Casita for dinner during JazzFest. We have eaten here on a few occasions. The food is good but not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. That being said I've always been happy with my meals and the prices are reasonable for Catalina Island. The have good strong Margaritas. My friend ordered a margarita... More
