THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Casa de Bandini Restaurant Review

: Tourists love this Old Town restaurant for exactly the things that turn us off, including huge, slushy margaritas, mariachi bands that play incessantly and Americanized versions of enchiladas, burritos, tacos and the like. That said, you’ll feel like you’re dining in the garden courtyard of an 1850s pueblo and the service is warm and welcoming. We prefer the genuine item to the predictable fare encountered at Casa de Bandini, but the rice-and-bean-laden plates are as good as any at similar establishments in this corner of California.
