Don't go expecting haute cuisine but the food is good, tasty and comes relatively quickly (can take a while if its full). We had grilled fish and a coconut fish curry which were both great. The chips are good too!

It's located on the beach. The food is simply and delicious, in affordable prices! We had calmars and coco rice but wish we tried more dishes, since they all look very good.

Cool Gargote by the sea. Amazing fresh seafood. Low prices. Best place to eat seafood in the area. During our one week trip in Nosy Be we couldn't help not to go back to Chez Tantine every day.
