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"

Situated in a medical office building, this is a pleasant surprise featuring outdoor seating, El Salvadoran and Mexican fare, along with soju cocktails and sparkling wine, wine. We enjoyed our breakfast immensely, the service was friendly, with table service. I think they offer take-out, I don't see why not. We'll definitely go back for the black beans, plantains and other... More

This is a great place for a casual meal and/or margarita. The inside venue is very small with a handful of tables close together. There is also outdoor seating. The food is wonderful with specials written on the chalkboard., The people are very helpful and friendly and try to accommodate any special needs. .We often go when we want a... More

I finally tried this restaurant out for lunch recently, but found it lacking in service and flavorful food. I had a beef enchilada and taco combo and my friend had the chicken enchilada. We both thought the flavor was lacking. Generous amount of food for the price and nice outside seating. Service was slow but the server was nice. Overall,... More

This place is a gem. Lovely little cafe snuggled among the busy streets of San Rafael. My daughters favorite place to eat delicious authentic homestyle Mexican food. Run by a sweet family who are very pleasant and happy to feed you great food. Also, no problem for celiacs since everything is fresh and made to order.

I love love love this place!! The burritos are so good, the servers are very warm and friendly. They really go out of their way to make your dining experience great! Their salsa is so good. Everything about this place tastes home made. It is in an interesting spot in the middle of medical buildings, but don't let that stop... More

I've eaten a lot of Mexican food at home (Kansas City area), and I've never had anything that tasted as good as what we got at Casa Manana. It's a small cafe that's hidden in the middle of a medical complex, but it's worth seeking it out. The servers were very friendly (even calling my retired wife a "seniorita.")

We have been in San Rafael for 4 days. We have tried restaurants from San Francisco to Sabastipol, and Casa Manana is the best. It is the best hidden gem situated smack in the middle of the Medical Canter building. They are located in the courtyard. Park in parking lot for medical center and the entrance is through the green... More

Description
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!
