It has been the best place to eat I have been to in Antananarivo. I tried several dishes and all of them were wonderful. The first waiter seemed annoyed by the fact that I didn't speak french. He asked me if I understood french and when I replied "no" he either way just gave me the french menu, turned around... More

Having dinner at a museum is how I would describe this experience. As you walk, the garden is packed with classic cars. Inside the restaurant, plenty of old lamps, clocks, phones, etc. The service is good, English is spoken well, no English menus though. The food is good, I went for the seafood dishes and was happy.

There is really nothing to complain about when thinking of all of the exquisite meals that I had at La Varangue over the course of a week or so. All of the meats were cooked to perfection, coupled with the most idyllic flavors, and presented in a sophisticated yet elegant manner. Especially when you consider the prices, there really aren't...

This may be the best restaurant in Tana but it is particularly expensive so if you are on a special occasion or expense account then you need look no further than this extraordinary restaurant.

The vintage feel of the restaurant is really lovely; if a bit overwhelming at first. There are 4 immaculate vintage cars parked outside which gives it a classy feel. Myself and a friend had a very very high quality meal (2 course) with a beer and cocktail each for about £40 altogether which I felt was reasonable. We did feel... More

I had the tomato soup, the steak Rossini and the chocolate explosion. The soup and steak were nothing special. I could cook the same at home. Presentation was noteworthy. The chocolate dessert was amazing. However the kicker came 2 hours after dinner: very sick until morning. I've lived here for over a decade and it takes a lot to make... More

Tonight I went to that highly rated restaurant in Tananarive, Madagascar. I was given a "red" menu without prices. I was confused at the beginning and I even joked about it with my colleague: "it must be pretty expensive, they did not even include the prices". To my surprise, my colleague's menu (in "white"), was exactly the same but it... More

I spent a week in Tana and of all the places I ate, this was by far the best. The decoration is a bit overwhelming as antiques are exposed everywhere, but there are some real treasures in there.

Can't fault this restaurant on anything. Well run establishment with great fine dining and an innovative menu. Foie gras, duck, quail, Zebu and ribs are all recommended. Explosion dessert is finominal. Enchanting setting. Very best in Tana.
