If you want a delicious want a delicious, lighter take on Mexican fare, visit this Mijitas in Eastsound on Orcas Island. There have been 2 previous Mexican restaurant in this space over the years, so we were expecting much of the same. But what we got was lighter and fresher and just delicious. the owner is from Mexico, the fare is authentic, just not heavy. My crab enchilada was in a delicious light sauce which let the flavor of the crab shine. The Carne Asada my husband ordered was delicious, with just the right spices. the plates were not overloaded with food, and you left feeling very satisfied. Since we are part-timers on the island, we look forward to many more wonderful meals at this little place. And in the summer, we will be able to sit outside in the garden area! Can't wait to go back!

Occupying the old Bilbo's/Chilada's location, Mijita's features a new menu with lots of yummy choices, better service, reasonable prices. Plus they offer tortilla chips and thick salsa at no additional cost! Try the fish tacos... The place is small and beginning to fill every night, so plan ahead.

Mijita's is the newest restaurant on the island and it's excellent! The chef is Mexican and he and his wife spent the last year cooking there, and making use of old family recipes. My favorite is the Chili Verde, but we like it all, and have eaten there four times now. The setting is attractive, with a wonderful outdoor adobe patio for summer nights. The prices are also reasonable, especially for the island.

Went on opening night with a larger table. We called ahead so the table was ready when we got there. Service was good and fast and the Pork was excellent! Call ahead!

We showed up towards the late end of the dinner rush. We were ignored by the greeter for about 5+ minutes. She was busy running around taking care of chores, but it seems like a quick, "we'll be with you in a moment," would have been nice.

After being seated we were quickly given chips and salsa. The house salsa is good and not to hot for my tender taste buds.

The tacos al pastor were very good. The waitress was friendly.

It seems like the staff is running around all the time and perhaps the operation could use a little lean streaming to ease the chaotic flow of workers.

The bathrooms are nicely done.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The prices are a little high and the portions aren't quite as generous as normally found at Mexican restaurants, but you are on Orcas Island where that is the norm.

Enjoy your visit here.
