Rated as one of the best restaurants in Antananarivo, located in Antaninarenina quarter, which is one of the nicest (and safest) of Tana, I decided to give it a try. The interior is very nice, the bar in particular with cool blue lighting. As a brazilian restaurant, I opted for the all-you-can-eat option with meat and dessert. As someone else... More

The waiter confirmed a chef who worked at the carnivore in Nairobi I came to train the kitchen crew how this thing works. Was impressed either the sides, salad was good, rice and vegetables adequate. Meat was a bit disappointing- only chicken, beef, beef tongue and crocodiles

We are meat lovers and this restaurant was an absolute let-down. It started off well with quick and friendly service but this quickly deteriorated. After you've had your initial servings the waiters tend to ignore you and focus on newer tables. We observed this happening throughout the restaurant and at one time meant we waited for almost 40 min between... More

Nice restaurant with beautiful views of the city (book in advance the two tables in front of the windows. Avoid salt in the center. Better the tables near the windows or near to the bar). Not too expensive; good meat, cool environment. Great for romantic dinners by candlelight or business lunches. The manager is very good, very present and courteous... More

Have been at the carnivore in Nairobi and near J'burg... this one is trying to copy a little too much.... but also, the decor is very different and I'm not sure it goes with the concept. It tries to look trendy and I think it lacks a bit rustic look that goes better with the concept of grilled meat at... More

Went there on a Monday evening and there was not much people inside. It's probably packed on week ends. The staff was nice and the menu was pretty much simple appetizers and/or desserts. We soon realized it was a real churascaria, a la Brazilian. Meaning there's plenty of different meats grilled and served to you until you say 'no more'.... More

We went there with a group of friends and family ( aboiut 12 persons), craving for a meat fix. This was my first visit and I was looking forward to try this place as I have tried other churrascaria in Brazil and North America before. We were quickly seated as the restaurant was not busy ( weekday). Drinks were ordered... More

OK, made a mistake with this place...we popped in for a quick snack, not realising that it was Le Carnivore. I could not understand why the menu has a list of delicious sounding meats with no prices and "etc" at the bottom. Waiter was great, gave us the "you guys are thick" look and then pointed at the price of... More
