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...More

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...More

This restaurant is tucked inside a small medical building, and you can't even see it until you drive halfway down the parking lot and look inside. It's worth finding because the food is delicious, and it appears that it's all cooked there, even the chips....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!
