Gourmet Gardens Review
This tranquil, secluded spot—a classic gingerbread chattel-house replica echoing the adjacent historic buildings of the former Olveston estate—fulfills more than half the name's promise. There are few more delightful experiences than relaxing on Mariet's verandah amid a virtual botanical garden or beneath the huge, shady tamarind tree. Lunches are excellent value, but Sunday brunch is the winner (scrumptious eggs Benedict). "Gourmet" is a slight exaggeration, but the all-homemade global menu more than satisfies most palates and wallets. Specialties include stroganoff, chicken cordon bleu, Wiener schnitzel, shrimp stir-fry, and any dessert (try the chocolate mousse or cheesecake).
