Great atmosphere! Quirky decor! Best food we had while in Madagascar. The zebu was delicious with peppercorn sauce. As well as the Malagasy traditional stew. Definitely worth a visit! But make sure to book!

I had just arrived into Antananarivo and friends organised to meet here. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is just as great. Prices are on the bigger side but with it. Staff know their job also.

It's not that expensive by international standards but it is quite pricey by local standards. If you are doing a full multi-course meal then I think that $25-30 should cover each person easily enough.
