Casa de Bandini is great place to hang out with a bunch of friends or to go on a romantic dinner. It's always very crowded and there's going to be a wait. There's plenty to see though as you stroll the Old Town's Bazaar del Mundo and interesting shops nearby. Once seated, you can order your drinks and probably the best Mexican food north of the border. They live band is great and really adds to the atmosphere and enjoyment of the meal. You can choose to eat indoors or out. Outdoors seating is very nice on a warm evening. Casa de Bandini is a place to definately visit when in San Diego.
