I invited few relatives to go to this place which is very famous and has a nice location in the heart of the city. I have to admit that it's probably the most beautiful restaurant in antananarivo. However, the service is a bit poor and slow for this standing. The menu is not impressive and especially compared to other places... More

I always very much to stop in le Café de la Gare. The place is really amazing and quite, and you feel in the middle of nowhere. The food is also very broad ans always excellent, and the service is top level. You have to stop there any time. The Brunch on sundays are also great.

Prezzi come in Europa. Particolare: una vecchia carrozza adibita a toilette. Price like Europe. Look the toilet inside an old car of the train.

very busy with tourists and travellers, not a local in sight! We were there at lunchtime so appreciably it was a busy time, but the service was very slow and my food was undercooked. Nice looking building. The toilets in old train carriages were a different experience although the amount of mozzies in residence would make it one to avoid... More

As the title notes, this is a place to see and be seen, or so I've been told by a well-informed local. Having eaten there twice for dinner, I observed it as a place regularly frequented by expats. The restaurant is worth visiting for the ambiance, with tasteful and trendy decor and located by an old train station. The food... More

We had lunch here on a Sunday and the food and service were great. We felt very comfortable eating here. The menu has a wide selection of food. I had pasta and my wife had the vegie lasagna. The restaurant is in the old train station and the bathrooms are in an old railway car. There are some other interesting... More

We were very impressed with the food and service. Based in what looks like a railway station with the toilets in an old railway carriage. It was my first Earl Grey Tea after two weeks and was very refreshing.

Would definitely recommend this for brunch. Lovely place with nice staff and a good range of food. Beware people at the gate who may aggressively harass you.

Green grass. Spacious place. Good place for relax in central town or for business negociations. Very simple. Restaured old trains. You seems not to live in town.

Nice remake of old European railway brasserie. Friendly staff. slow service and average food. I had chicken which was not cooked enough. At my remark they just said they would have told it in the kitchen, without any feedback. Half of the desserts was not available. I wouldn't go back, expensive for what you get.
