Four of us stopped by Mi Casita for dinner during JazzFest. We have eaten here on a few occasions. The food is good but not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. That being said I've always been happy with my meals and the prices are reasonable for Catalina Island. The have good strong Margaritas. My friend ordered a margarita... More

This place is in a good location and the service was quite good. The food was pretty average Mexican food and for Avalon, the prices are fair. Couldn't really complain about anything, but nothing special to report either.

Our group of 54 had dinner upstairs. The food was delicious and had beautiful presentation. The waitresses were unfriendly and stoic. Perhaps they were stressed. It doesn't really matter since the service was good.

Ate here right before catching the boat back, was asked to leave our luggage outside. The food was ok, nothing special. Too pricey for its quality. The Margarita was watered down. The service was ok though.

Went here after everywhere else had a wait. Nice fine. The food is pretty SoCal Mexican standard. Price as low for Catalina Island. Service was pretty good. Recommend the Egg Burrito. It rocks!

The margaritas were watered down. I ordered a combination plate. The carnitas taco consisted of some dried out pork and nothing else. No cilantro, sauce, or anything else. The rice was bland, but the beans passed for flavor. Used to be good, but not this time.

I ordered the carna asada torta sandwich. It was amazing. I also enjoyed a Mai Tai. The waitress was friendly and it was a good atmosphere. Definitely one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. Service was pretty quick and the restaurant was starting to get busy.

We got the sampler and it was terrible - a platter of deep fried tasteless food. Avoid this, not worth it. The guacamole and salsa were both bland.

Came for happy hour and appetizers. It was good. People were friendly. The environment was casual. Margaritas were tasty and we loved the chili sauce on the table.

Walked into restaurant with 2 families. Noticed dirt and moldy salsa. Asked for water. Was told by a surly waitress, Angie, that they sell water. Don't give it out for free ( against the law). Then asked for margaritas. Mine was so sweet and awful, I asked to switch to a skinny marg. My friend asked for a switch as... More
