Good food, great location

Food was very good. Limited card for the lunch, amazing choice for the dinner and real croissant for the breakfast. All is fresh. And homemade icecream was just amazing!

Having read some of the reviews here I was expecting to be underwhelmed by the restaurant Le Melville - fortunately I had no need to be concerned! No, it is not the cheapest. However, it is definitely the most beautifully situated on a balcony overlooking a private beach, clean and pleasant, and with a breathtaking view over the entire bay... More

Just a few minutes from the city centre by 'toko-toko'. The place looks wonderful, just over the bay of Diego-Suarez. The food was very good and not too expensive. Nevertheless some of the dishes were unavailable.

Good seafood selection, the best were the appetizers. A bit on the expensive side, that is for what you are getting. A great view of the bay, wonderful staff, expensive drinks, and dried out grilled lobster.

They are situated next to the allamander hotel, and if you stay there this is where you will eat breakfast. Their breakfast is very nice, but come hungry, you are served with fresh fruit, bread, fruit juice, croissants and eggs which all arrive at the same time. It is all very tasty. You can't go wrong with fruit in madagascar,... More

We stopped here for lunch after a flight from Tana, before going to Joffreville/Amber Mountain. A tasty fish lunch, sat on a balcony overlooking the bay. The staff were helpful and attentive - especially when we chose to change our table to the terrace when a table became available. The fish was fresh and nicely prepared.

This is supposed to be the best in Diego Suarez. Well we didn't think so. The service was lousy. Not intrested and bringing the wrong maincourse. The quality of the food was ok, but not worth the price we had to pay. All in all disappointing

This is the finest dining we've had in Diego. The setting and atmosphere is excellent, and although the price is higher too, it's not outrageously high (still an "average-to-low" price compared to most dining restaurants in the US, and nowhere near the cost of a fine dining restaurant in the US). The daily menu often has great choices, and so... More

Plus: - The restaurant has a delicious location with its terrace by the sea and nice wood furnishing - Excellent service: staff is well-trained, welcoming and proactive Minus: food quality is ok but not at the level of La Rosticceria (which has not such a nice location but definitely better food)

Wonderful view and a very smart place. Had a lovely anniversary lunch here and it was worth every penny. Cold towels on arrival were just bliss! Attached to the allamanda Orel which is way out of our price range, but the restaurant was kind of standard restaurant price, and well worth a visit.
