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

We had dinner here one night while staying at La Varangue hotel. The service left nothing to be desired - attentive and friendly. When getting the menu neither of us knew what to choose, there were so many dishes that sounded great! We ended up chosing calamari, flan of courgette, duck and quail. The food was presented with great attention... More

Colleagues had told me great things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The place looks like an antique shop which can make it feel a bit cluttered but which I found gave it great atmosphere. The bar is cosy and I loved looking at the jars of rhum arrangé. Dinner was lovely. Started with the usual when in... More

We booked to eat here on the last night of our tour in Madagascar and it was the perfect way to end our trip. On arrival we were impressed by the sophisticated style of the dining room with lots of antiques and soft lighting. The waiters who served us were very pleasant.

This fancy restaurant with a very special interior decoration is definitely the place to be seen in Tana. The service is excellent, but I was slightly disappointed by the food. The foie gras starter was good, but the seafood casserole had more veggies than fish, with a very heavy cream sauce. Still good, but not top score.
