My husband and I dated here in 2001 and ate there this afternoon. It is still just as charming and friendly as it was back then and they have more tables with umbrellas out in the patio since that time. Food was good. Husband had...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

Lots of Native speakers were there when we visited, and the food was good. Friendly service, and lots of patience for dogs and children.

ordered the chicken taco. Nice sized serving but the taco was fried. The refried beans and rice looked "tired". I did not enjoy my food. My boyfriend ate his burrito but said it was "just ok"

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!
