This rather small bistro is has intimacy in spirit , the owner walks around and is willing to share a conversation or a drink , the food is tasty and the service efficient. Location is convenient !! Shall go back there !!

Plenty of eating places in the suburb of Isoraka...this place ranks in the top few easily. Three of us had lunch...pave du zebu, 'zeburger' (yes that is what they call it on the menu) and the fish in creme sauce. All very good...no shortage of zebu (as highlighted by a previous reviewer) and better still, plenty on your plate (fish... More

Owner was the nicest lady, we have almost zero French, she had little English but lots of smiling and pointing and the food was actually really good (we didn't know what to expect but Malagasy/French fusion was fun!) They will also just make you spaghetti and vegetables if you're feeling a bit wary.

The name and reviews were very promising. In reality, nothing special. First time we stopped by they did not have any zebu!!! Next time they had it but it was cooked with the quality of the railway station bistro steak. Yes, the patio is green, but it is on the corner of the busy road and it very loud. The... More

Zebu is the name of the local beef in Madagascar . The restaurant is beautifully decorated even with Picasso reproductions on . The menu is not huge but each dish we selected was excellent , service was charming , music very pleasant . We shall definitely get back to this restaurant !!

I had the pleasure of dining at the Zebu Bistrot last week in Tana. Our large group of 11 sat comfortably at a table in one of the back rooms of the restaurant. The restaurant is in an old building that feels like a house, and we felt as if we were dining in the REAL dining room of a... More

The curry crevettes (shrimp curry) was our favorite. Super cute house that it's in. Near Pavillon, Colbert, Varangue, nice people who work there. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

Could this be the greatest restaurant in Antananarivo? I can't say for sure, but it surely must be one of the best. Located just across the street from the Comorian Embassy, this little gem of a restaurant is set in the first floor of a regular-looking house. When you enter, you feel like you are walking into someones living room,... More
