The friendly staff makes you feel like you're family. The food is delicious and authentic. What's not to like?

Had a great Chilly Relleno and a massive Long Island Iced Tea. Chips and salsa were good. Rice and beans good too.

We have been to Catalina Island numerous times. Too many to count. This was our first time at this restaurant. Hard to believe since there are not a lot of choices. The margaritas are 18oz and the glass they come in weighs about 2lbs! Well maybe less, but they are heavy. We had them on the rocks as suggested by... More

Not bad Mexican food and good service. They serve their signature Cazuela drink (similar to sangria) in a large ceramic bowl with a straw.

If you are looking for traditional Mexican food while in Avalon, do stop in at Mi Casita. Excellent salsa and fresh ships will start any meal off on the right direction.

Average food. Nothing special. Was hoping for a little more spice in the food. The shredded beef they used in the taco was very good. Everything else was just o.k.

Sorry for the bad review, and I really don't like doing this. But the island was busy overall, but this restaurant was not that busy, and it took two tries to seat us somewhere we wanted to be seating. We could tell right away that another couple had been seated before us, and not served yet. We waited maybe 10... More

First you get seated and they don't even take your drink order until you call them over. To me any restaurant that claims authenticity should have homemade tortillas. Service is basic.

We chose this place because the decor was so nice...as soon as we sat down the experience went down hill fast. The service is absolutely horrible! The 'hostess' never smiled at us, once we sat down we waited at least 20 minutes before a drink order was taken...then the waitress (same as the hostess) seemed irritated that we were ready... More
