“Our Dinner at Mi Casita”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The meal was what we expected. The service was slower than expected and we were there at a slow time.

“First place we tried for lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

My husband loves mexican food, we wanted to try this place on recommendation from our shuttle driver. It has ok atmosphere, and a view of the side street. This place had a very wobbley table so we moved to another. We mentioned it to the waitress and the busboy, but we watched as they kept seating people there, and those people then moved......The chips and salsa was mediocre. The margaritas were good though. The price was ok, we decided not to eat there and left....

“Extremely good and great value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Really enjoyed an authentic mexican meal here in September.
Certainly worth if a visit if you're on the island for a few days and need a change of scene/menu.

“Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Awesome margaritas, good fast service at lunchtime, very good authentic food. Loved the ambiance and decor and very crowded (a good sign). Somewhat pricey for Mexican fare, but fits the price standards of other restaurants on the island.

“Been there many times in the past, will go many times in the future”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I love Mi Casita, in fact, I love all of the restaurants owned by Jack and Nora. They are great. I have eaten there for years, and will continue to eat for years to come. The food is authentic, the service was great, everyone was polite. We got to the restaurant one night 15 minutes before closing and they never once were anything more than cordial and patient. No one hurried us to leave. Their mojito was fabulous,, as was the strawberry lemonade alcoholic beverage. I love their food, and we enjoyed it so much that we took our friends, who are mexican and love authentic mexican food. They loved it as well!
