In a very busy and noisy city we found this gem. Great to combine with your visit to the castle/church. It is right in between those two tourist attraction. We stayed there a little longer because it was such a nice place. Sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view over the city. We had lasagna for lunch and... More

We had an excellent three-course grill menu for lunch here, and truly enjoyed it. On Sundays there is only set menu for lunch, and live music to go - and we enjoyed both. We sat on the terrace overlooking Tana, and had a very nice time - perfect after walking around and visiting the nearby Rova. The quality of the... More

Stopped off for a lunch whilst doing a city tour - the place was very busy. We asked for the a la cart menu but they were only doing a set 3 course menu. Well we asked for only the mains. As I did not want rice with my meat I asked for chips - boy that was a problem/... More

Stopped in for lunch on Sunday after a tour of the Rova. Fantastic food, and made even more memorable for the live music and singing (local). Short walk from the Rova, on the right as you walk down the hill from the main gate.

Well I was told this was "a must" but really one could just come for the view, but actually that was mostly blocked by a particularly ugly scruffy building that sits right in front of the terrace and blocks what would otherwise be a really spectacular vista The food was nothing special and the place was on the skids in...

Food is simple but tasty. Don't expect a culinary experience. It's rather a cultural experience. Located near three major historical buildings (queen's and prime minister palaces plus ancient tribunal) and the view from up there is splendid. Highly recommended for lunch . Usually local music performs during week ends

I liked the fact that they had a security guard at the top of the steps. I felt reassured about my vehicle. The service was not bad, don't get me wrong. IT was a bit reserved, perhaps. But I prefer that to waitrons gushing all over you. The food, grilled fish in my case was very nice, but I felt... More

I went here for lunch before visiting the Palace du Rova and it was a great lunch spot. There is security guarding the entrance so you are not asked to give money or buy anything. The view overlooks the city and the service is friendly and efficient. I had a VERY luxurious lunch! I ordered a glass of wine 10,000Ar,... More

The Grill du Rova has been a favourite of mine for many years. I love the view, the peace, and the food is fine. Nice people, friendly atmosphere, out of the way, no one hassling you to buy things or give them anything (except the guides to the Palace du Rova will often be right outside looking to show you...
