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

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

Our family of 3 had the Red snapper al ajillo, chicken Parmesan, & the chicken in wine sauce. The red snapper was excellent, chicken in wine sauce a bit tough. Bread basket was ok. Sangria was lacking in liquor, was too much lemonade & not enough wine. Overall a good experience. Most busy for a Monday night.

The restaurant was recommended by a local and the food was very good. The beef Mofongo was outstanding with a very large serving. The bean soup was also very flavorful. We had a local Puerto Rican beer, Magna, which is a lager.

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. It is not fancy, it is small and in an outdoor mall. The food was very good, price is moderate, the service was slow, but they are on island time and we are from New England.

We had a great dinner at Mi Casita with one chicken and one beef mofongo. We liked the chicken even more and were full after eating the generous portions. The restaurant is very popular and you might have to wait a little bit to be seated. But it's worth the wait.
