My wife and I really enjoyed this restaurant. It was conveniently about a block away from our hotel. The food was excellent and the the portions are massive. The prices were a real bargain compared to other places in old San Juan.

We ordered a mi casita combo to split with a side of mofongo. If you are a great fan of mofongo, this is your place. Served with chicken broth to drizzle over it, the portion was huge.The combo included perfectly cooked strip steak, moist chicken breast and shrimp. Delicious white rice and red beans completed our meal. Service provided by... More

Recommended by many, this is a local cafe serving local dishes. If you want to try mofungo, this is one of the places to go to.

First timers in Puerto Rico ... trying the local dish "mofongo" is a good cultural experience. Mi Casita in Isla Verde offer a variety of this dish. I tried the mofongo with fried pork and my husband ordered the mofongo stuffed with chicken. Both were good but a little overwhelming. If it's your first time to try the dish I... More

The restaurant is hidden in a strip mall that leaves little to be desired. The food was fabulous and the staff was friendly and quick. The sangria was delicious and the food was very tasty. It was much less expensive than eating at our hotel. I ate breakfast here multiple times on an earlier trip to San Juan. The shrimp... More

We visited this restaurant for luch as it was recommended by the taxi driver and the hotel staff. Very good local food. The mofongo and pork chops were very tasty. The place was packed but service was fast.

My husband and I just returned from Isla Verde where we ate at Mi Casita twice for dinner. Authentic Puerto Rican food well prepared. There is absolutely no ambiance in this restaurant - it's more like a local diner frequented by locals as well as tourists. Who cares if the food is good? Had outrageously fresh octopus and snapper. Mofongo.... More

A highly popular restaurant with locals and visitors almost opposite the Intercontinental hotel in a small shopping complex. We visited for breakfast. Fast & friendly in a fairly basic setting but at less than $10 per head this was a snip compared to the $30+ in the hotel.

We asked our cab driver to point us to authentic Puerto Rican food. She suggested Mi Casita. When we arrived it is a small restaurant but it was constantly busy (with natives and tourists). They claimed their specialty to be mofongo. I'm allergic to seafood and had the beef and my husband had the seafood (they were out of lobster... More

We tried the mofondo which is a Puerto Rican dish. Not sure if I like mofondo, but the shrimp in it was great! We enjoyed the desserts just as much as the main courses. Very Good!!
