Good foie gras and duck. So much better than "Sakamanga". Take your passport with you, taxi/police scam around the corner asking for ID ( they ask for a bribe to let you go).

For our last evening in Madagascar, we wanted to treat ourselves with a nice dinner and we were delighted by the service and the quality. Service was thoughtful and food quality was perfect and prices acceptable (expensive for Mada standards but acceptable for western standards)....More

This restaurant has excellent food and service. The menu is classic French food, and there is a good selection of wine. The decor is in a classic style; the chandeliers and classic cars make you feel transported back to the 1920s or 30s. It is...More
