We have been eating at Las Camelias for years now and appreciate the authentic, fresh and delicious Mexican food. The white beans are out of this world and one of my personal favorites. The wait staff are personable and attentive and have been working at Las Camelias for decades and we always greeted with a smile. My kids love the food!! Las Camelias is the best Mexican food in Marin county and although, not in the best location, i am a big fan and eat there weekly!

I would say that everything on the menu is home made - From the tortilla chips to the enchiladas, I enjoyed everything about this restaurant. It's not high end, nor is it low end. It's just a great family restaurant wether your two or a big family. The service was great as well as the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I love their salad dressing on the house salad and the meals are delicious. I know that Mexican food is different in different areas and this is dressed up but casual and delicious food. Thank you to Carol and her family for making this great restaurant so consistently comfortable and delicious.

Las Camelias is always a dependable choice for a local restaurant. Have eaten at this restaurant for casual lunch , business lunch and dinner. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Menu selection has variety of choices. The menu has options for those that are in to low carb choices or for that matter vegetarian . Prices are reasonable and food quanity is more than adequate.

I've actually lived in the Bay Area, and besides loving SF burritos, was seriously underwhelmed by the Mexican fare. HOW how how did I miss out on discovering Las Camelias? In particular seeing as how my Jewish friends have known the owners for years and our friendly chat upon arrival made us feel right at home. Las Camelias serves up not only has the best mole I've EVER had (each flavor distinct and crisp - clearly homemade the right way), they also had some crazy Diablo sauce which actually does make you feel that you are living in sin. Order chicken enchiladas with either sauce and you cannot go wrong...the chicken they use is organic quality stuff - plus a twist on refritos, using white beans instead of pinto - a refreshing and delicious change of pace! The owners clearly have style, class and culinary education/experience way beyond that of your standard Mexican fare, and you reap the rewards as their prices are more reasonable than makes sense for this level of gourmet Mexican...it is too good to be true! If you like Mexican food and live in the Bay Area, go visit your friends in Marin - and take them to Las Camelias!
