The food here was amazing. We had san juan's signature mofongo dish plus fried chicken and the yellow rice had pork chunks in it that put it over the top.

I was excited to see the menu at Mi Casita....they have several mofongo dishes and I had fallen in love with this local specialty after a food tour in Old San Juan. What a disappointment. The mofongo was dry and flavorless. The pork was deep fried and woefully dry and overcooked. The meal was served with a bowl of....something. It... More

The service is terrible and they blame you or have excuses, food is ok. If you don't want to be a waiter and are put off by someone asking for coffee or never come back to table then maybe you should rethink your career choice.

Great place for bfast across from the Intercontinental at about one third the price. Simple diner setting with American or local choices. Beware that coffee refills are not free however.

If you've never had mofongo this is a great place to try it. They have 9 different types. I had skirt steak and it was tremendous. I eat mofongo all over Puerto Rico when I get the chance and this was top two for me.

Our cab driver, taking us from the airport to the InterContinental Hotel, recommended Mi Casita across the street from the hotel. He said it was good, local food. The next morning, we walked across the street for breakfast. Mi Casita is located in a strip plaza behind the Marketplace Café on Isla Verde. It is a small diner-type restaurant with... More

Stopped in for lunch with friends. If you are looking to dive into Puerto Rican food, this is it! The pic posted is Mofongo with Beef Steak. It's absolutely delicious! The people there are also very friendly! It's also in walking distance to the beach. You do have to pay for parking, but it is free you have lunch at... More

This was our first stop on our first trip to Puerto Rico. It came highly recommended by the staff at our hotel. I was a little hesitant at first because it was small and tucked in between other businesses in a strip mall. I'm so glad we didn't let that hold us back. My husband decided on the chicken/steak/shrimp special... More

Only stopped in for a couple breakfasts. Quick and friendly service, simple food and affordable. Wish it was a little cleaner.
