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.

A beautiful restaurant set in an old stylish house. Menu and food good, staff excellent, atmosphere beyond desire. Many quirky collections of items such as old phones, lamps, and many more. Highly recommend visiting - book before you go as it is very popular.
