Living in the Northwest for the past 11 years, we've really missed the authentic Mexican food that we enjoyed in the Southwest. It seems like all of the restaurants in the Northwest serve "Authentic Mexican Cuisine", delivers a Pacific Northwest version of "Mexican" food (rather bland, uninspired, spice-less gruel). That is until we tasted the food at Mi Casita. Finally,... More

Great home-made Mexican with fresh salsa and really well made, generous margaritas. Check out the collection of Mexican art and the First Nation story in art along the hallway.

Pricy for average Mexican food. Took long time to be seated, but once seated service was good. Was not impressed with the food, have much better.

Mi Casita Mexican Restaurant, in Springs street, Friday Harbor, WA serves best Mexican food in town. If you go there without a reservation, you may have to wait about 20 minutes. Very tasty food, good ambiance and best friendly service.

We had dinner at Mi Casitas on a Monday night. During October many of the restaurants are closed at the beginning of the week. Mi Casitas had good ratings on Tripadvisor so we decided to give it a try. The service was excellent, the ambiance nice, and the food average.

Ok, let me preface this by saying that we are from Texas. Texas - you know - where Mexican food was practically invented. Texas - where most every Mexican restaurant has a couple of ladies on staff who speak very little English & make incredibly delicious homemade tortillas. So should I even be writing a review of a Mexican restaurant... More

Looking for a reasonably cheap but tasty meal, this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The meal was excellent and nt at all expensive. In addition drinks were very reasonable and the bill was half of what we paid in most of the restaurants we ate at while on the island.

Wanted something for a dinner that was casual, not expensive and could handle gluten free. It was perfect!! And not much had gluten except the flour tortilla dinners... And some of those could b modified. Server great. Owner right on the spot cleaning tables, visiting. And they are open Sunday evenings although their posted Info said they were closed.

Our friends with whom we were cruising the San Juan Islands raved about Mi Casita and they were right on the mark. The margaritas were plentiful and very tasty. The food arrived in huge portions and was very good (especially the carnitas). The chips and salsa were also very good and unending. The service was excellent and they will accommodate... More
