The venue is nice with a garden and the food was ok, but I had specifically asked for the dish to be without cheese and it turned out that there was cheese in there. Was not offered a new dish, free drink or discount, so was disappointed with the service of this place.

A nice restaurant with indoor and two outdoor seating areas, the food is good and it is an enjoyable place to relax and pass time.

I have four times the occasion to dine at Buffet du Jardin: the meals take time to come but food is delicious. The ambient lighting is soft and the gardenlike decoration evokes holidays at the seaside.

The food was average, good portions but value for money so don't expect haute cuisine Loved the atmosphere, lots of old French men waiting to pick up you Malagasy girls what more could you want as entertainment. Nice outside eating area and free wifi.

It is a basic but good restaurant. In the week-end it is very animated with regular music performances sometimes with very good group.

Great little downtown restaurant. Good food, comfortable setting, both indoor, outside, and covered patio. It's a nice place - although - there were two TV screens playing news/sports above me, which may be an attraction for some, in the main/bar area. I only noticed after seating, and tried not to be distracted - but when the disco lights got plugged... More

It is not that you feel robbed or something, but I do not really want to go back. Especially considering that there are many other places with similar prices, or cheaper but better quality just a stone's throw from there.

We ate approx. 1/3 of the menu and everything was from tasty to delicious. Waiters and waitresses were really elegant and professional.

L'buffet du jardin seems to be an institution, i can't understand why myself. Having visited several times i've always found it to be pleasant, friendly staff, reasonable prices etc but it's nothing extraordinary and I wouldn't say it's a hot spot for dinner or drinks. They serve draft but so do other nearby places, they serve food (including malagasy dishes)... More

The worst restaurant I visited in Tana, full of prostitutes chasing tourists and the food is really bad. Perhaps good just for a drink. I had a pizza, it was the worst.
