This restaurant is hidden in a medical center. Food is average. I ordered eggs but they tasted like fish. The previous order must have been some grilled fish. They did not offer to replace the inedible eggs.

I am a little particular about Mexican food, so to me it's good, not the best I've had in Marin but honestly worth going to because it's relaxing to sit outside and the women who run it are an example to all restaurant owners in...More

First, the location is hidden among medical offices, follow the signs and turn left into a doorway along the medical offices. Second, the tortillas were freshly hand-made, moist, soft and delicious. Our orders included a wet burrito--delicious and unlike traditional Mexican burritos. The 2nd was...More

We had a little difficulty finding it because it was hidden in a little central courtyard, surrounded by a medical office building. It’s a small place with outside seating for when the weather is warm. The food was excellent, the staff and the other customers...More

One of my local favorite local eateries for Central American fare. It is well established and the staff is friendly. It is small inside but has nice patio seating when the weather permits

If you are looking for delicious Mexican food in a casual setting, this is the place. Margarita opened this place in 1969, and she has acted like a mother to her customers for over 48 years. Long hours, but lovingly spent dispensing delicious food inside...More

Tucked away in a courtyard behind a medical building, Casa Manana offers authentic food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is friendly and mercifully quiet, especially in the outdoor tables. The food provides Salvadorian flavors that are not often found in Marin restaurants. The pleasant staff...More

The restaurant is located on D. St right next to Arco gas station. Large parking lot is conveniently available for customers to park. We are located in the courtyard of the large medical building. Please don't let the location fool you. We have very nice outdoor seating as well as indoor. Perfect place to bring your kids or even your dog. Laid back polite friendly service. Family owned and operated since 1979 in this same location!
