Advertised as African restaurant, Mar Rosso sits in the heart of San Salvario and can offer dishes from the traditional cuisine of the Horn of Africa.
We dined in the African room where you'll be asked to take off your shoes and will be able to sit on the floor and eat without cutlery from a low table. The Eritrean dish we shared for example is supposed to be eaten with bare hands with the help of injera, a region-specific variety of sourdough bread.
A more conventional dining room is also available and the waiting staff will help you navigate the menu if you're unfamiliar with anything.
We had a very pleasant experience overall: definitely worth trying.

Me and my boyfriend visited Mar Rosso last week.
We had dinner in the room where you eat on the floor without shoes.
It was very characteristic.
The food was very tasty, maybe too much expensive.
But I would surely recommend it.

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!
