Monello is the perfect restaurant for those who are interested in adding a bit of European flair to their vacation. Located in the Italian district of downtown San Diego, this Milanese inspired restaurant is beautifully decorated, mixing modern design with rustic touches. Grab your girlfriends or a date and enjoy the calming and relaxing ambiance. Their menu of modernized street food offerings includes Italian meat and seafood dishes, freshly prepared pastas and pizzas, small and sharable plates, as well as sweet treats. And with most of the sizeable portions available for less than $20, you can enjoy a gourmet, yet filling meal without a high price tag.

The Fish Market

If you’re visiting San Diego, you’ll likely want to try some of the area’s fresh seafood and The Fish Market is the place to go. Guests can enjoy locally caught products, as well as an oyster and sushi bar which further expands the dining options. Although some of the seasonal options can reach upwards of $30 a plate, the average entrée is about $20 and the extensive menu also has pastas, salads, tacos and steamed seafood plates for around $15, as well as children’s plates. Combine the variety of dining options with stunning views of the water, and The Fish Market offers visitors the whole package!

Currant: American Brasserie

Serving food that combines classic French techniques with the soul of a home cooked meal, Currant is a favorite among locals and visitors. The restaurant highlights small details with beautiful crown molding throughout, stunning glass chandeliers, and cozy upholstered chairs to create an elegant atmosphere. During lunch, almost the entire menu of sandwiches, salads and burgers is under $15 and for dinner, don’t expect too much more than $20 unless ordering a house specialty. You can also stop by for happy hour which runs from 4pm to 7pm and 9pm to close daily. Talk about a great deal!
