Casa de Bandini: Diners Say It’s the Best Mexican Restaurant in North County


We think we’re great…the best Mexican restaurant in North County, San Diego. We prove it every day by providing you with the freshest food prepared and delivered by a super staff in a truly beautiful and authentic Mexican restaurant setting. But don’t take our word for it…

‘The re-incarnation of my favorite restaurant in old town is worth the drive. Its a Carlsbad address but I call the neighborhood Olivenhain or Inland Encinitas. We went there with a party of twenty on a Sunday Afternoon and experienced great service, delicious food, and the Black Cherry margaritas before were a HUGE hit with the ladies. Honestly, San Diego Magazine was wrong, because Casa de Bandini has the best guacamole! Its served in a concha and looking right at at you just daring you to dip a chip! The seafood dishes were amazing and my wife loved the chile colorado!’ – Van A.



This seems like a LARGE Typical Mexican Restaurant – yet this place is GOOD!! Perhaps GREAT!!

After looking through the HUGE Menu which will make you dizzy, I finally landed on the 1 separate page “HOUSE SPECIALS” menu that had SALMON with a lime Cream Sauce, baked potato and veggies – grilled.

Well, i am so glad i had this, not only was it the Best priced item on the menu at $11 vs. $15-25 for most other burritos or fish plates, but this was perhaps one of the BEST DISHES I have had, and I do not say that lightly or often.

More than not I am disappointed with many places except a Few … However, after my experience there, I put it at TOPS of my list and actually after I digested that day wanted to go back AGAIN 4 hours later and have it again, it is THAT GOOD!!!



“Great place! Same food and same great service as when they were in Old Town. Big delicious margaritas too!” – Lisa G.

Come out tonight and experience our award winning menu and our famous margaritas. It’s San Diego Mexican restaurant excellence!
