Mi Casa by Jose Andres - Dorado Beach a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Ratings and Reviews

It was a great experience. Our waiter Jovanni was great that night. He makes us feel great, the enviroment was quiet and relaxing. The cooks of Mi Casa and the Chef Victor were excellent. Is one of my favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico. I allways have a great time there. The food is exquisite and original. The taste is just awsome. I just love it. Thanks Mi Casa team again for everything.
Beautiful setting, very disappointing food.
Cod appetizer was tasty; key lime tart delicious; other appetizers & entrées very disappointing. Special was an overly rich flavorless rice-a-roni dish. Beautiful setting, decent service, very disappointing food. Recommend Positivo. Same location, great food, great staff. Both restaurants require an $18 dollar valet fee.
Worth every penny!
And I say best restaurant because there was nothing bad, not a single thing! I went with my husband to celebrate our first month as newlyweds and my husband's birthday. Since we arrived, the attention was phenomenal. Our waiter was very friendly, he welcomed us with two glasses of "cava" for our special occasion, he suggested entrees and explained everything to us. As appetizers we ate "Tortilla de Papatas New Way", "Steamed bun with pork belly and chayote mojo" and "Coquitos Frescos Ferran Adria"... An explosion of flavor in my mouth, just exquisite! And very nice presentation. My husband ate the rib eye and I chose Skirt Steak with papas bravas... Good GOD! Every bite was pure pleasure! For dessert we choose Mi Casa... chocolate, hazelnut, olive oil and salt... the perfect way to end our dinner. Very memorable experience, the surroundings are ridiculously gorgeous!!!!!!!!!
The experience is worth every penny, I fully recommend it.

We have been several times to Mi Casa and overall have had good experience.
Service is great, food is good and the ambience is quite elegant. Although they recommend jacket for attire, everyone was casual but elegant.
Have been to other more expensive restaurants that serve very small portions. Our menu this time had "decent portions" but still expect a bit more for the price.
What we like the most of the restaurant is its location at the Ritz Carlson Reserve! Its a beautiful hotel for an early dinner sunset style in their outside terrace with the Ocean and hotel pool view!
What a Beautiful Place. Food & view was excellent!
My girlfriend and I were told by a friend who lives locally that this is a must visit during our trip to Puerto Rico. It was recommended that we either spend the night ($$$$$) and/or dine, we chose to only dine at Mi Casa by Jose Andres - This was an absolutely wonderful way to spend a romantic night, I HIGHLY recommend it.
Beautiful and Awesome Restaurant
We have been sure to add this to our list of restaurants we dine at since it's opening every year when we enjoy our time share on the island of Puerto Rico. Not only is the outdoor dining wonderful with it's gorgeous view of Dorado Beach but the food is delicious, different and exciting. The tapas type menu is so much fun to eat and it is so hard to decide what to choose as everything looks and is wonderful. The braised lamb entree that we ate on this most recent trip was amazing as it was so tender you did not even need a knife to cut it. The flavor and presentation were wonderful. The indoor dining area also is beautiful, but we always prefer to dine outdoors as the view is just too good to miss. We have enjoyed everything we have ordered and we have dined there the last three years. Dorado Beach is beautiful on it's own but the Ritz Carlton Reserve which is a six star resort has only enhanced it's beauty. Not only is the restaurant beautiful in it's own rite and the food amazing, experiencing the beauty of the resort is definitely something you do not want to miss . We love the restaurant and look forward to eating there again.
The finest restaurant in Dorado Beach
We chose the Mi Casa Experience, which is the tasting menu. There were about nine dishes and each one was better than the next one, but the ones that really stood our were the Iberico ham with pain con tomate, the chicken croquettes, the tuna seviche, and the dessert which was the best flan I have ever tasted. We both had a cocktail, so only wanted a half bottle of wine with the meal and they have a very nice selection. The servers were all excellent and the entire experience was one that I will repeat next time we return to Dorado Beach.
Reserve your time and money
Having been to Chef Andres' Bazaar in Beverly Hills, we thought Mi Casa in Puerto Rico would put an exclamation point to my wife's birthday on our recent trip. It did. Unfortunately it was one of those "!@*(#%" types of exclamation point.
From our hotel in San Juan we drove 30 minutes into what we started to believe was the Jurassic Park movie set after going through a security gate (think no lights, small directional stump wooden road markers that couldn't be read and golf cart with low level lights racing about on parallel paths). After four wrong turns we finally found the compound and were greeted by a staff person in monk type robes who explained that the property was one of only two "Reserve" Ritz Carlton properties on Planet Earth. (Be warned that there are more planned.) The concept of the "Ritz Carlton Reserve" is a spiritual, holistic retreat. The property is surely beautiful (my best guess since we couldn't see anything that wasn't faintly illuminated) and the building housing the restaurant (with the prerequisite well lit gift shop for RC Reserve Gear) was like a giant hunting lodge with fantastic open spaces, exposed wood and pretty pools outside.
Menu seemed fantastic but none of the dishes were memorable. We were hoping for a fantastic representation of local cuisine done in a unique way but it wasn't to be. In fact we had several better, similar dishes in San Juan (ceviche, chicken croquettes, yucca gnocchi). Service was good but a bit smothering due to the high 'staff to diner' ratio. It's not much fun to keep nodding that everything was good/fine with mouthfuls of perfectly fine food but disappointed thoughts. As expected, the bill produced that feeling of "you know what I could get for this $$ in San Juan or Carolina".
Valet parking added another $20 to the tab (no other alternative unless you wanted to brave a 'long walk' through dark forest I was told).
Save your time and money. If not, take a torch and best of luck.
A Special experience!
This is not a "budge friendly"experience, but you absolutely get what you pay for. All staff (from the security guard, valet, hosts, bartender, and waiters) was well trained, helpful, and pleasant. The grounds of the Ritz Carlton were gorgeous, impeccably kept, while still seeming as if they grew there themselves. Food was fantastic. The outdoor dining area truly was amazing, we watched the sunset as we enjoyed our meal. Perfect night.
Worth the Trip
Traveled to Dorado from San Juan to watch the sunset and taste our favorite chef's tapas. We're from the DC area where he has many restaurants that we really enjoy. Mi Casa tops them all. Romantic setting at the Ritz is a complement to the excellent food and drinks. Great margaritas in the lounge while the sun slowly disappeared started our evening. They serve a nice tray of olives, Marcona almonds and a great local cheese. Dinner started with Iberico ham croquettes were crispy outside and creamy inside. Lump crab salad made a great second course. Potatoes Brava are a must order for us with the crisp exteriors and soft interior made special by the spicy tomato sauce. We shared the Guavate-style pork as our main. Just wonderful. Crackling on top and fall-apart tender underneath. Tres Leches ended the night. Worth the expense and travel. Highly recommended. But do make the journey to Gravate for the whole pig roasted over hot coals if you can.
From the crabmeat and tostones appetizers, through the entres (braised veal and shrimp on a bed of polenta and wild mushrooms for me, the freshest Mahi I ever tasted, and delicious skirt steaks for others in my party that tasted like filet mignon) to desserts and the flaming experience with rum and a skillet that created a smooth and slightly sweet Puerto Rican coffee treat; everything exceeded our expectations. The setting was beautiful as we sat on the deck outside between the beach and the serenity pool and watched the sun set and then checked out the stars as we enjoyed our wonderful dinner.
Most beautiful setting and world class!
How can I possibly give justice and express such a divine experience? I have dined all over the world and Mi Casa is the most beautiful setting and best fine dining restaurant I have ever experienced. The out door poolside beach setting is breath taking! We tried the 9 course tasting menu. It was the dining experience of a lifetime. I do not have a gourmet palette so a couple of the dishes did not appeal to me but everyone who appreciates fine dining should enjoy this grand experience. The flan is unbelievable. The atmosphere is top notch. The service was impeccable. Bravo!
Great food, great view!
Make sure you request a table outside because the ocean view is absolutely beautiful. The service was outstanding and the food was great. My husband commented that this may be one of his best meals ever. The pork belly sliders were an appetizer favorite. My husband loved the ceviche and cured ham. The squid ink pasta dish had a very mild taste and was delicious. If you are not a foodie don't let the color or sound of the dish deter you. The house specialty chocolate dessert was light and yummy. We are returning again during our stay at Dorado and considering a third time on our open night !
If you are at the Reserve-Dorado this is a must
Been to Mi Casa several times for dinner on different vacations at Dorado Beach; very lovely. You may think where else to have a splendid dinner if you a sequestered at Dorado Beach; but there are choices..... In any case stay and enjoy, you are here to relax, have a Tempranillo
A must return!!!
We had a memorable early dinner with a fantastic sunset and the best waiters ever! Great suggestions for the wine and food , they even had txakoli, a very good white basque wine which is rarely found outside the Basque Country. Plates were superb both in taste and presentation!
They make you feel like you are in Tu Casa
First I stop on Positivo rest for some tapas and sake, where the service from Arelice and Chef Marimel, set everything for a good start. Them the service and food on Mi Casa was excellent. Everybody from Tony @ THE BAR Chef Victor and Erick and my server Erika contribute for a perfect evening.
5 star night except
beautiful surroundings, would have been a 5 star eveing but the outside lights began to flicker, strobe
actually throughout the dinner, and they were so distracting, headache provoking.
We had to ask to be moved and we did not receive any acknowledgement from the staff , i.e. "so sorry, would you like to move" or "may we comp you a drink?" nothing. a little dissapointing.
I am sure this is a one time event so I would return, but thought it could have been handled better.
Bazaar by Jose Andrès in Miami Beach is one of my wife' favorite restaurant. I made reservation at Mi Casa for our 5th year wedding anniversary.
First, the Ritz Carlton sets the mood. That property is absolutely breathtaking. Second, the whole staff (hostess, bartender, servers) were aware and acknowledged the occasion for our visit. Lastly, we selected a couple of dishes that we've had in Miami Beach. The consistency is amazing. My wife and I are foodies; we had 13 - 15 small plates (including dessert) and they were ALL delicious. Beautiful resort, superb service and excellent tasting dishes. A must do, the next time in Puerto Rico.
Divine food, great atmosphere
My husband and I dined in the restaurant 2 nights in a row and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere was exceptional -- ask for a table outside as it's a bit quieter if you are just the two of you -- with interesting art and comfortable tables. The food, was exceptional and inventive, taking the tapas format and providing exquisite small tastes of well paired fresh ingredients presented in an a innovative manner. There were enough choices that we didn't repeat dishes over the course of our two evenings but the 63 degree egg/potato foam/caramelized onion offering was too good to miss, so we ordered it both nights. The wine list was innovative and different. The service impeccable. And for such a gourmet meal served in this sublime setting, we felt it was reasonably priced too. Highly recommended.
Go for the setting
Read all the reviews so knew we were headed for an expensive meal. First shock was they wanted $28 to park my car with no option for self-parking. Shown to our table which was outside and absolutely perfect. View over the beach and ocean was beautiful. Did not go for the tasting menu ( $95 each ) but ordered few appetizers for table, then main courses. Everything was fine but i wasn't amazed by the food. Full disclosure, I'm not a foodie/gourmet. Service was fine. Bill was high but not outrageously so ( little alcohol consumed ). All in all a nice evening. ps got parking voucher from restaurant
From start to finish our experience at Mi Vasa was magical: inventive, delicious food, fine service and truly lovely atmosphere .
We were unable to book rooms at The Rotz for our family vacation but after dining at Mi Casa we will definitely plan a trip back to that property in the near future.
As good as advertised.
Went on a weekend getaway at the Ritz Carlton, and had dinner here on Saturday. From the hostess, to the wait staff in general and our waitress (Signarie) in particular, the service was A+. The drinks were great; the wine selection very good (especially the section on Spanish reds); and the food was all amazing. Great combination of two of my favorite cuisines: Puerto Rican and Spanish. The main room has a relaxed and classy feel. (We didn't get the chance to check out the outdoor area.) It was great for a relaxed, romantic dinner, and would be fun with a group of friends. Can't wait to go back.
El recibimiento fue inovidable,
Hermoso detalle de nuestra hostess Diara, tenia en mi mesa un arreglo de rosas y petalos de rosas dispersos, fue genial, logro un ambiente romantico ya que ella sabia que era nuestro aniversario de bodas. Nuestra mesera Zidmarie muy agradable y asertiva en sus recomendaciones. Me sorprendio agradablemente el detalle de escribir en el plato del postre Happy Aniversary! Fue la velada perfecta!!!
