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).

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!!

The place always looked crowded and open late. Walked here from Intercontinental Hotel. 2 of us ate dinner here for under $30.00. No drinks. Great menu selection and can't beat the prices. Service was quick and easy and servers were very helpful.

We order take out and while waiting we saw a lot of people coming in. We order the crispy fried chicken but was dissatisfied because chicken was soggy not crispy.

Monfongo was delicious! Nice local spot with good food. Reminds you of how your mom or abuela cooks!

We had a lovely time going to Mi Casita twice during our trip. This is a very simple but cute joint, with traditional Puerto Rican food. Service is a bit slow at times, but the portions are great, and certainly good valued. Would recommend the Mofongo with carne frita.

The food in this restaurant was a very good and we enjoyed ourselves Lots. The plates were full and large and more than enough to eat at a very reasonable price.
