I ensured photo coverage of the Jumia real estate ceasars' night. The chef made luxury gastronomie, the beverages were tasty and the lighting suited the soft sound. The place is ideal for private events, especially at night

Located in the Rail Station built during the French Colonial period offers primarily fare for tourists but well prepared and nicely presented, also some local options. Plenty of cold beer. Restrooms out back located in s historical railcar. Right next to the bustling downtown.

The bar and restaurant are located in downtown Tana next to the old train station. It has a beautiful garden and is a pleasant place to spend the afternoon.

What stood out was the service, nice and attentive waitress paid attention. Starter of shrimp and calamari salad was nice, burger was good and fulfilled my hankering for some western food. Creme Brûlée was a disaster. Packed at lunchtime.
