A great restaurant in the Marina of San Francisco

Cafe Marimba - San Francisco

A festive and bustling restaurant popular with local residents of the Marina , the cooking here could best be described as Mexican with a California twist. The ingredients are fresh and often unusual, and the results are inventive and delicious. Try the empenadas for an appetizer. These little delicacies are small turnovers filled with any number of items (such as smoked chicken and black beans, beef and potatoes, or spiced pumpkin), and change often.
