Loved the guacamole, homemade salsas, ceviche, fish tacos and crisp salad. Could eat this food every night. Great service in welcoming comfortable setting.

This gem is a favorite destination for happy hour. It has a warm welcoming atmosphere and great social vibe. The menu selections are Mexican and South American. Appetizers present a wonderful variety from stuffed chile to a scrumptious shrimp dish with delicious toast points. Guacamole was exceptional. Service was excellent.

I had a real urge for Mexican food for lunch on Sunday, and two of the regular places we usually go to were closed, thank goodness. I say that because Google led us to Marinitas in San Anselmo and we were thrilled by the lunch we had. I had the steak tacos which appeared small but were loaded with chunks of delicious steak, topped by a light , seasoned cabbage that was simply divine. My husband had the fish tacos which were even better - fresh, a spice I couldn't identify but that made it the perfect complement to the fish. When I start going 'mmmm" over and over again, that's the measure of my pleasure and this restaurant got 4+++ "mmmms!" I would have given 5 but the service could have been better. Our server was great but I got the sense they were understaffed or the busboys who brought chips/salsa were very slow. But the food is fantastic and I will definitely be back.

This place gets a poor rating because I have had to send my steak back countless times. How hard is to cook a steak medium. That is pink in the middle and NOT RED! They cut the steak into pieces after they cook it and they still can't get it correct. WTF!

I'm a local and my family likes to go here so now I order the steak taco's. They have too much salt. And the guacamole is a rip off. It is now $10 and they small dish.

This place is awesome! It's our regular spot. Great choices for both vegetarian and non, and the service is great too. It's a place for everyone to go and feel comfortable and get a great meal. Kids are welcomed and everyone is made to feel comfortable.
