casa de bandini

Best Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad CA

Diane Powers has brought the fun and flair of the original Casa de Bandini to The Forum Shopping Center in Carlsbad, Calif. Formerly located in Old Town, San Diego, this second generation Casa de Bandini Mexican Restaurant is the essence of Mexican culture: authentic Mexican food, fabulous mariachi entertainment, hot-off-the-grill homemade tortillas, giant margaritas and an environment depicting Colonial Mexico. 

Due to San Diego Covid -19 mandate, face masks are not required to enter the restaurant at this time as long as you are vaccinated. If you have not been vaccinated, please wear your mask while you are walking through our restaurant or away from your table.

Due to the present extreme labor shortage and to ensure proper service to our guests who are on-premis to dine-in, we will no longer be offering pick up or delivery orders after 4PM. 

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.
