My experience with this restaurant this evening was a little bit below average for good restaurants in Antananarivo. Atmosphere and safety was good, service level average,but the food was this evening not on the right level for me.

Looked up the reviews online and found it highly rated. True to the ratings, we had a great experience. Everyone enjoyed their meals. From the Malagasy selections to the Italian selections. Needed with dessert and some local rums. The owner came by and chatted with us who was very charming. Highly recommend the visit

I was there having dinner with a large group of friends for a birthday. It was a great celebration. I really recommend this place for a get together place.

We would recommend this one to any one if visiting Tana, not only because of the... More

After reading some good reviews I went for dinner. I was largely disappointed, the food is ok but over cooked (I had the rabbit), the sauce was bland and rather flavourless and the vegetables had an overpowering amount of garlic. My friend had the Margaret de canard and said it was absolutely fantastic and so I can only assume the... More
