Expensive by local standards but well worth the price. The indoor-outdoor garden vetting makes this place romantic and cozy. Food was delicious ... though several items were not available. I had Greek Salad and Beef Stroganoff. Very little English spoken (English menus were available).

If you want some Raclette or another french specialities with cheese, this THE place to go in town ! For the quality and the quantity of the food, the price is reasonable. If you go on week end or with a large group, better to make a booking before.

A popular place with people from Reunion islands and regular visitors in the capital. Food is usually excellent and service of good quality. Very urban in the centre near offices, banks, ministeries and such. Parking can be seriously messy in the area

If you live in Tana and like cheese, you must go here in winter - it is so nice to have the raclette or cheese fondue when it's cold outside. Also otherwise nice restaurant and the other dishes we have tried were good too.

The place is comfy and you feel like at home, fantastic atmosphere. The duck magret was sublime and the zebu carpaccio rocks for just 2,5eur. Tana must!! PS: Their cat is suuuper cute!! (Lulu)

Ate today at the La Ribaudiere after someone I met recommended the place. The food was well prepared, tasted very nice, and the staff was highly attentive and very kind and friendly. The ambience was very romantic with nice table cloth and candles and is suitable for couples (several were there) but also larger groups. However, my Zebu was cut... More
