Dined here last Monday and were lucky to get a table (book early). The whole experience was perfect... ambience, service, wine but most notably the food. Truely first class French cuisine that went straight into my top 5 dinners of all time! In London or Paris I would have expected to pay £300 for two with wine (and it would have been worth it), but for €100 all in the value was as exceptional as the food. We are booked into the hotel for our last night in Madagascar and am sure it will be a great ending to our trip.

This restaurant and it's garden are a true oasis in Tana. Food is exceptional as is the attentive service. The plethora of antiques is most impressive - pleased I'm not polishing all that brass :-)

An excellent menu cooked by a discerning chef? We really liked the crevettes. If you want a less expensive lunch try their omelettes.

This is such a special place and if you are lucky enough to book a room here, enjoy. The restaurant serves delicious food and the terrace is a great spot for an afternoon tea or coffee.

My wife and I stayed at La Varangue twice during our honeymoon in Madagascar.

The first time was for 3 nights and it was great. The room was huge and modern, and a really good mosquito net (not the flimsy ones, but the ones with the weighted bit at the bottom so it doesn't ride up over the covers).

La Varangue is in a quiet location but central, so easy to find your way from the hotel to the main attractions.

The restaurant is also amazing, we had a three course meal one night and the desserts are just out of this world. Our £ was also strong, so La Varangue was great value for the quality of the hotel. The restaurant was always busy when we were there, seems very popular with tourists, locals and ex-pats alike.

We stayed again before we flew back to London and again the stay was super. The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly, especially the waiters in the restaurant. We also booked all our airport hotels with La Varangue and that was great, no hassle and they made sure we had 4x4 for each journey.
