God service, but it's a bit too much like a bar in England. If you are looking for a pub like England then go for it. The train tracks at the back are interesting to have a look at.

I went there twice because I love the place. It's your typical cafe from last century with the wooden benches and warm atmosphere. The service is friendly and decent, the food is good and reasonably priced. One of the most positive aspects is that there are many locals and not too many tourists. The toilets are very original: in a... More

The food was very enjoyable but the service is very poor. Waitress did not seem to take notes of what was ordered. My friend asked for some local drink which comes in an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version but the waitress did not get the non. Later we asked for some butter with the bread but the latter never materialised. The... More

A nice spot away from the chaos of Tana. Service was frustratingly slow and the food was rather average.

This restaurant is really lovely, great atmosphere, in a beautiful building with lovely interior. I was really looking forward to having a great feast there. Unfortunately, having had great experiences at other restaurants in the city, I found the food rather underwhelming. The foie gras poêlé was a tad undercooked. The gratin de crabe was overly oily and I bit... More
