“Great sauce”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

You have to try the delicious sauce in the bottle on the table, tastes great on everything. It has a bit of spice, but is very flavorful. We were served chips and salsa and ordered guacamole and queso on the side. We ordered the enchiladas and burritos which came with rice and beans. The serving size was good and everything tasted good.

“Skip it..you won't miss it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2011

Below average Mexican cuisine. From the chips and salsa to our entrees it was a miserable and bland experience. I ordered the Carnitas plate and it was fatty and flavorless, not to mention the beans were watery and bland. I would also like to mention that its rather pricey considering how mediocre the food and service is. If you're in the mood for Mexican while on Catalina you're better off skipping this joint and going anywhere else because this was easily the lowlight of our 4 day trip.

“Whole Family Got Food Poisoning”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2011

Went to Mi Casista in Catalina for my son's birthday (it was recommended on the City Council's Website) and we all came down with FOOD POISONING!!! Terrible experience and will probably not be back to visit the beautiful island because of it! We all ordered the Carne Asada plate and were sick by the end of the day and had to come home and cut our vacation short. Sat in Urgent Care for our son's birthday and was told we had all eaten "bad meat". Maybe the City should rethink directing visitors to Mi Casita.

“Shrimp Omelette was excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2010

I enjoyed this restaurant. I asked for a shrimp omellette, that isn't on the menu, and it is one of the best I ever ate. The waiter usually says he'll ask the cook, but comes back saying, "no problem!". It comes with potatos with chorizo and cheese, which I also liked. My wife enjoyed the machaca and eggs, and the bloody caesars and marys are good. Salsa was pretty good as well, and they have a homemade hot sauce that I couldn't get enough of.

“Good food, average service, nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2010

We ordered the tostaditos (which were tasty, but on the smallish side, but the included sides of mi casita rice and beans or fruit were ample and tasty) and the chicken torta sandwich meal (which my husband was generally unimpressed with - except that the fries were delicious)! The service was decent, but servers were not particularly interested or friendly. The decorations inside were colorful and fun. For the price, a decent place to eat.
