My niece and I were trying to find a restaurant for lunch close to downtown San Diego where she works, but without the parking problems. We both came up with Andre's Cuban Restaurant just off the Sea World exit on the I-5. We both ordered a chicken sandwich which was huge, delicious, and very different for $8. I took home half of the sandwich. The coffee was delicious, service was prompt and attentive, and the ambiance pleasant, airy and open. If you're waiting to pick up a fellow traveler taking a different flight, as I was in May, after a quick rental car pickup I went to Andre's to kill time until she arrived. It took me 12 minutes to return to the airport after she called to tell me she'd arrived. I think you'll find Andrea's service prompt, the food well done, and the ambiance pleasant.
