The reception at our hotel suggested this restaurant and were we ever glad he did. The restaurant is tucked away - so you have to look for the sign or know where you are going. I had steak that was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. The vegetables were also cooked properly and the cheesy potatoes were absolutely fantastic. It was... More

Found the name on the hotels list of nearby restaurants. Loved it. Quirky place. Cannot describe this eclectic interior. :) We ordered the Fondue Bourgignon (Meat Fondue). It was so delicious. I totally overate. Liked their wine selection too. I would have loved to eat in the romantic garden, unfortunately, it rained very hard. Nevertheless, it was a romantic evening... More

The food was delicious! The service was very good and the wine pour was great! If we had not been told about this place we would never have found it. It is way in the back of apartments and not on a main road with other restaurants

Stopped in when passing and had a lovely lunch in a leafy courtyard. Would pop back if in town and the accommodation looked lovely too.

A great meal by the fire on a rainy night in banos. Good service from French/Spanish speaking host, and a decisions steak meal - get the mushroom over the pepper is my advice. Good wine and quirky decor. Worth a visit over the ever present Mexican, pizza/Italian offerings on every street corner - pricier, but worth it.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, and without their recommendation I think we never were able to find it, since it is quite hidden located off the street. It is a very colorful cozy place and we had delicious steaks! The service is a bit slow, but they gave us garlic bread and generous filled glasses of wine, and we enjoyed... More

We went with 4 families (18 people) to Mariane. The food was really nice and the ambiance was cosy, with a fireplace and a french owner. The only critics was that the service took a bit long. But really a recommendation.

My husband and I quite enjoyed dining here several times while we were studying Spanish in Banos for four weeks. This is such a quaint, quiet and tucked away jewel, well worth the effort to find it. A couple of times for an afternoon break, we drank generous glasses of wine along with nibbling on homemade french fries in the... More

This café is a real treasure as we had dinner twice we had 4 different meals and each one was fantastic! And best of all, save room for the desert. Yes, when you order wine it comes in a large glass and full to the top 8-10 oz. so enjoy the dinner and the warm atmosphere.

Cafe Mariane is a little tucked away gem. The space is great and the food is good. It is expensive, so maybe not a great place to go on a budget, but my friend got the steak and it was perfect!
