Great food, fast service. If you enjoy the best Mexican food in the island. Medium price. Well serve.

I don't know how you can screw up beans & rice, but this place managed to do so. I do not recommend this place at all!

The food was good, but service was lax. Prices were fairly equivalent of the mainland. A bit underwhelming.

Our first meal on Catalina, just steps from our hotel was Mi Casita. I had the Chile Colorado, which was quite tasty. The rice left something to be desired, and the beans were highly flavored with Cajota Cheese. The Margaritas were very good. My bride...More

This is one of the worst Mexican restaurants we ever had been to. Any fast food restaurant like Taco Bell is way better (and cheaper) than this place. The service was horrible, the food was terrible, and they refused to serve tap water. The coke...More
