Ideal for big dinner!

If your stay in Antananarivo, this restaurant and bar if you are hungry is ideal for you! You can eat home much you want and drink too. Personal are still over you, so yours plate is never empty! Food was tasty but I'm not sure if it was everything really fresh.

Definitely a "must visit" while in Antananarivo. The place is well decorated, plays good music, and the staff is friendly. All combined it gives the place a great vibe to eat and hang out. The variety in meats served is unbelievable (chicken, beef, zebu, snake, crocodile, lamb and others). Their bar has an amazing menu at great prices. Place is... More

I will not visit again. Interesting concept but the food was not good. Large barbecue with many types of meat. I would avoid this restaurant.

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

The meat itself was pretty good. But the service is ok, and the restaurant is overpriced. Drinks are way too expensive. We have been to excellent Churrascaria restaurants. This one was, meeh...ok.

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
