Travel to San Francisco: Choosing a San Francisco Mexican Restaurant
Japanese | Chinese | Mexican | San Francisco's Top | Italian | Thai
Asia de Cuba
Though its food doesn't live up to that at similarly priced restaurants, Asia de Cuba offers tremendous portions and funky, elegant decor that make it worth a visit nonetheless. Among the starters, try the hulking oxtail spring rolls or the exquisite lobster pot stickers with lobster roe and vanilla-spiced rum sauces. Entrees are large enough to feed two and are meant to be shared; they include a garlicky palomillo of lamb and a good Hunan-style wok-crisped fish stuffed with crab. Pricey drinks, full bar.
An ultra-sylish and ornately colonial San Francisco Mexican restaurant serving authentic and inventive Nuevo Latinio cuisine at affordable, tapa-sized prives. The wine list includes Riojas and the food, ever since its recent opening, have kept San Francisco diners loyal with tapas, seafood dishes and creative Latino fusion desserts.
The casual take on the tastes, scents and sights of Cuba in San Francisco 's Russian Hill that's a worthy argument against embargo. The decor is rustic with earth tones, murals and a ceviche bar while the bar scene is lively with San Franciscans looking for some of the best Mojitos in town (and other hand-crafted Cuban cocktails).

At this branch of his Manhattan restaurant, Acapulco-born chef Richard Sandoval serves elaborate Mexican-inspired cuisine fit for a deluxe seaside resort. Expect seafood and subtle vinaigrettes at this San Francisco Mexican restaurant, not burritos or hot sauce. Wheelchair accessible.
This San Francisco Mexican restaurant is one of the rare places that can be both romantic and fun. This is a SPANISH restaurant and not technically a San Francisco Mexican Restaurant. The look and feel of the restaurant is colorful, playful, and exuberant. The bright walls are alive with matador and bullfight posters, fringe shawls, painted plates, and a clock set to the Spanish hour. Expect to be serenaded by a trio of Spanish singers with guitars. The house specialty is the Paella. The wait is long (35-40 minutes), but well worth it! Purists will savor the saffron-laced rice simmered and baked with generous portions of fresh prawns, mussels, and other seasonal seafood. But the wait is more than tolerable if you munch on some delectable tapas (appetizers). The Patata Brava is wonderful -- oven-roasted potatoes drizzled with a smoothly spicy and intriguing sauce. Cost is about $15/person.
