A word from Mi Casa by Jose Andres - Dorado Beach a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Inspired by the storied past of this unique location at Dorado Beach, José Andrés introduces Mi Casa. Paying homage to the property’s original plantation home, Su Casa, José welcomes guests into a relaxed, luxurious setting, where traditional flavors are transformed by modern presentations.

At Mi Casa, José also re-imagines fine dining, creating an interactive, engaging atmosphere. A kitchen display bar and understated, elegant cocktail service help to break down the barriers of formal dining service. José’s goal is that guests are well-looked after and feel very much at home, as you would in José’s casa. Dishes and drinks will be prepared right before you. Service will be very personal and attentive, but always professional.

Serving breakfast and dinner daily, Mi Casa will transform throughout the day from breezy and bright in the morning, to casual elegance in the evenings.

    Service was poor - menus not brought to table, then not collected. Service slow - dessert took very long time to arrive which seemed unusual in that no cooking was required. Was unable to cut thru the "crispy crust" on the pork with mango entree. Does not live up to the hype or the price but setting is lovely.

    Food was OK but not memorable and not worth the price. I dined at two of Jose Andres's restaurants in DC and it is not in the same league. Overall, I am glad I went but I would not go again and would not recommend to others. There are better restaurants in PR for half the price.

    Fui al restaurante para celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposa. El servicio fue excelente , la ambientacion en el local es estupenda especialmente poder ver el atardecer ya que tienes vista al mar y al infinity pool del ritz.La comida es lo que esperas de un chef como jose andres , deliciosa y enfocada a los detalles (el bocadillo como aperitivo es un MUST) la carta de vinos es extensa y completa.El restaurante es costoso pero vale cada centavo que inviertas en el.

    If you want a special dinning experience, Jose Andres is the place. From cocktails at the bar to the entrance to the restaurant itself where the staff greet you at unison, the experience was spectacular. Our server Jennymar was enthusiastic to explain the menu and at the same time well mannered. Everything on the degustation menu was good including the serving dishes, very unique plating in some of the courses. It was a lovely evening!

    We were fortunate to dine in Mi Casa twice for breakfast and once for dinner. Each time the food was delicious, service outstanding and views amazing. The vibe of the restaurant changes throughout the day, with a striking transition from morning efficiency and light to evening dining in an intimate and romantic setting. Cocktails in the lounge - an interesting space arranged like a room in a private home with mixologists hosting the guests - was a nice way to begin our evening. Dinner features an imaginative array of starters, tapas, entrees, and desserts that are beautifully and creatively prepared. We ended our meal with a flaming specialty coffee, prepared tableside, that comes with a wonderful story and much theatrics.

    We have had the pleasure of eating with Chef several times before. During our stay at the resort we ate here 4 times. Each time we had issues with the food. When you dine at a restaurant of this caliber you expect things to be great. This was simply not the case. I would suggest Chef coming into town to do a full retraining of this Culinary team. All of this being said compaired to the other food options on site we found the Restaurant a value if you take advantage of the tasting menu.

    I do not consider myself a Foodie, but I do like to go to new restaurants, i like to eat and watch cooking shows as Top Chef, etc. There is from where i know Jose Andres. I went for my Birthday last year to Jaleo at Las Vegas and I love everything about ti, specially the Olive Oil Ice Cream. This is why I wanted to go to MI Casa as I live in PR and was so excited when I learned he was opening a restaurant here. I found the prices overly expensive. Food was okay but not great. The Carrucho Frituras were cold on the inside, the ceviche de atun had more onions than atun on it, the shrimp were small, the filete de atun was less than1" thick, the lechon was s small. I did like the service which was great, the venue and the ambience.

    One of the most memorable dining experiences of my life. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment at Mi Casa. While Jose Andres is not there to personally oversee the operation, I felt that we were in capable and talented hands. The food was creative, flavorful and plentiful for our group of six. We did not even look at the menu and asked our capable waiter to "just take care of us" which he did and we were not disappointed. While the price tag is hefty, I must say that I am already dreaming about my return visit. Thank you team "Mi Casa" you did your boss proud.

    The restaurant is expensive, but the value you obtained from the service, food & ambient, deserve the money you invested. Your inversion is in feeling good time, pampering service and imaginative cuisine. Chef Jose Andres, get out of the box, changing traditionally dish presentation (check the spanish omelette, caesar salad, guavate pork and "carne guisada")) to mention some examples. The place is woderfull for dinner at 6:00 PM, when the sunset start showing its splendor. The majority of the wines are over the $100.00 dollars, but the wine list is extensive and well balanced. The receiving area and bar invited you to stay. Thanks!

    Mi Casa is not a good restaurant. The food is like a bad imitation of puertorrican dishes. The pork plates are cooked without any condiments so the final product is tasteless, you can get better pork anywhere in PR. Even the Spanish were weak, the piquillos were also flavorless. I think they should train better the chefs since I went to Jaleo and it was a lot better, also they should concentrate on spanish tapas. Service was very good and the locale was ok, too modern for my taste.

    We traveled an hour from our resort south of San Juan and this was one of the most memorable meals we ever experienced . The location and beauty of the resort, scenic view, and outstanding service from the first moment, to the exquisitely prepared food, and Ivania the supervisor who made our 20th Anniversary dinner surreal with extra special touches that are hard to explain. Be prepared, it is expensive, but you get what you pay for in this life and for this experience, it was a bargain! Sitting outside overlooking the ocean during sundown didn't hurt! From chicken croquetas to the Potato + Egg and Guavate Style Pork and Spiny Lobster through dessert, one dish was more amazing than the next! But, Ivania, made it all even more special.

    Tasting menu had some great finds. Others fell short even though they sounded really good. Overall we expected more. Guavate pork dish and chicken croquettes and ceviche were outstanding. We would have been better off listening to waitresse's specific recommendations from menu as opposed to selecting tasting menu. We are looking forward to doing that soon.

    The food and ambience are great and the service is excellent. Located in the Ritz-Carlton Resort, it is 6-star quality. Make sure to ask for the wine recommendation of the night. If you do not live in the area and are not sure when you'll be back, the tasting menu is the way to go. Like most restaurants in Dorado, however, be prepared to spend at least 3 hours at dinner.

    Words cannot express our amazing experience. We are fond of Jose Andres' restaurants and tapas style, and wanted to share it with our four kids (ages 9-23) while we were in Puerto Rico on our vacation. Rather than turn up their noses on the children, they absolutely embraced it and indulged us from the very beginning to the very end. The coquitos were AMAZING a la Andres' style, and the staff absolutely pandered to the kids-we even got a tour of the kitchen. In addition to the great service, the food was absolutely outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about Mi Casa!

    This restaurant experience was outstanding. While it is difficult to predict what you will receive on your plate as compared to the description, everything is sure to exceed your expectations. Our teenagers were at first tentative about the adventurous offerings but loved everything they tried. So much fun to experiment with multiple tapas offerings. Especially recommend the chicken croquettes, the foie gras soup, the caesar salad and the bocadillos. Chicken entree and lechon entree superb.

    There's a reason this place was nominated for a James Beard two months after they were opened. Jose Andrés did not dissapoint. The restaurant was a little tricky getting to, leave extra travel time if not staying on the Ritz property. Grounds and restaurant are gorgeous. Service is very good and the staff was very accommodating to my gluten sensitivity. I feel like the service will get even better with time and experience with the menu. The majority of the food was exceedingly good and though we didn't absolutely love every dish it was fun to experiment. Tasting menu is available which I would have liked to try but the entire party has to choose that option. Some things are pricey but affordable choices can be made on menus.

    We have been to the restaurant twice. The first time, we had two appetizers which were really good (jamon iberico y las gambas al ajillo con chile). We had as main courses the red snapper and the filete de vaca (supposedly a rib eye). The red snapper was average but to our surprise the "rib eye" was just a filet mignon.We went last Saturday, we had the conch fritters. We had the mallorca with the foie gras, which was good but the piece of foie gras was not enough. Our big disappointment was the shrimp. The waitress told us that the receipe was changed because the guests did not like the spicy. keep the original. The piquillos were very good but the best was the jamon con pan entomatado. Los conos de queso de cabra should be eliminated.

    Cuisine at Mi Casa by Jose Andres is a novelty, but is not memorable gourmet cuisine. For example, a potato omelette is more like a moose served in a glass. I did find the duck soup excellent, and my friend said that so was her ceviche. Recently I had dinner at Jose Andres' Bazaar restaurant in Los Angeles and I feel that the menu and its execution were significantly better at Bazaar. Maybe the reason is that Jose Andres tries to incorporate Puertorrican cuisine into his menu, unsuccessfully I think. Service at at our table was surprisingly bad; however all other staff that we flagged down due to lack of service by our waiter were extremely pleasant and helpful, so I guess we had the worst waiter in the house. Try it, it's worth a visit
