First visit to this restaurant for a family event. Even though we had a fairly large party (18), the staff did an excellent job of serving the table and timing the delivery of the food. Overall the food was very good.

The restaurant itself is fairly large, and on a Saturday night, was very busy. It has a full bar and outdoor dining area.

The only downside to having a large (long table) party is that the restaurant is very noisy and we could only chat with people directly on either side of us, and even that was challenging at times.

Good local restaurant that's popular with North County residents. Nice outdoor dining area, bustling bar and solid food. We're big fans of the Happy Hour where all drinks and entrees/apps are discounted. More importantly, it's a little less crowded than the 7-9 pm crush.

Casa de Bandini offers a colorful Mexican decor, typical ethnic food with generous portions, great Margaritas and Mariachis!
It is lively, lots of people go there and when you come out of there you find yourself singing " La Bamba! "

Good quality food, live Spanish music
It is suitable for family and friends.
It is better to make reservation since they get busy on weekends.
