Marianas is a gourmet landmark in Stanford, the food is honest and delicious. Mariana does all the cooking and her charming husband handles the front of house.
The place is small and I doubt she can cater than more than 50 per sitting - however it is so popular, so be prepared and book well in advance.
We sat out side on the small stoep overlooking the vegetable and herb garden. The menu is based on what is available so you are assured of the freshest produce.
My main was a pork dish and it was absolutely delicious, the pork just melted in my mouth. The starter was a lovely barley salad and the dessert was one of the most delicious pear cakes I have ever tasted.
The meal was accompanied by some local wine. A really lovely venue and do not let the opportunity to enjoy country hospitality combines with wonderful food pass you by. People travel many km's to eat at Marianas and now I know why !
