The Eritrean Mar Rosso is a long time favorite among immigrants and youngsters in the San Salvario neighbourhood, a run-down-now-gentrified quarter close to the city centre.

I was at Mar Rosso twice with friends and stayed in the typical room, where you sit on the floor and eat with tour hands. The whole experience is very nice and intimate, staff is also nice and the food is very good (dessert too!)

We visited in March 2015 and the food was so good. Really tasty. They also have wifi which is a great bonus. The down side (maybe not for all people) is the room where you eat on the floor. It can really give you cramps! Otherwise, excellent staff and excellent food! I will be back in April!
