The vintage feel of the restaurant is really lovely; if a bit overwhelming at first. There are 4 immaculate vintage cars parked outside which gives it a classy feel. Myself and a friend had a very very high quality meal (2 course) with a beer and cocktail each for about £40 altogether which I felt was reasonable. We did feel... More

I had the tomato soup, the steak Rossini and the chocolate explosion. The soup and steak were nothing special. I could cook the same at home. Presentation was noteworthy. The chocolate dessert was amazing. However the kicker came 2 hours after dinner: very sick until morning. I've lived here for over a decade and it takes a lot to make... More

Tonight I went to that highly rated restaurant in Tananarive, Madagascar. I was given a "red" menu without prices. I was confused at the beginning and I even joked about it with my colleague: "it must be pretty expensive, they did not even include the prices". To my surprise, my colleague's menu (in "white"), was exactly the same but it... More

I spent a week in Tana and of all the places I ate, this was by far the best. The decoration is a bit overwhelming as antiques are exposed everywhere, but there are some real treasures in there. In addition you can admire 3 vintage cars parked in the front yard: A Range Rover, a Citroen Traction and a beautiful... More

Can't fault this restaurant on anything. Well run establishment with great fine dining and an innovative menu. Foie gras, duck, quail, Zebu and ribs are all recommended. Explosion dessert is finominal. Enchanting setting. Very best in Tana.

This place is very charming! Right in the Center of Madagascar, the staff is very welcoming, the rooms and whole hotel are very clean, the food (we had a few dinners) is premium and delicious. The rooms were a bit cold at night. But the overall experience was amazing.

We stayed in La Varangue, so we had tried 3 meals-breakfast, lunch and diner. All the meals were very good there. Breakfast if buffet with bread, fruits, juice, cakes etc. I ordered seafood with vegetables for lunch. The dish was quite big and well designed. Chocolate Chocolate was the best desert I had there. The service was great too.

Lovely place nicely decorated. Service very friendly and correct but slow (malgache style you must get used to it) Dishes nice but not that much. They told us this is a * michelin like restaurant and because of that expected to be surprised with an original tasty exotic or western food .... but it was just a nice french style
