“Sacre bleu! Le Cordon Bleu cuisine in Tana!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely perfect--from the eclectic and fascinating building and collected antiques to the kind & attentive Malagasy servers, this was a terrific evening during our 2 weeks in Madagascar! Both our fish dishes (filet of sole and "captain-fish") were delightful and the lemon trio dessert: sublime! Great food, great value, great memory!

“Over Rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

My wife and I were looking forward to our dining experience at La Varangue. We were so disappointed at the quality of the main course served. Zebu was tough and the second worst Zebu meal that we had during our 28 day Madagascar trip.

Desert was excellent but did not make up for the poor main.

Meals very pricy and the wine, well, just too expensive.

Thank you for your constructive review.
We are upset to learn that the zebu served was not up to your expectations.
For over 4 years, our restaurant on Tripadvisor is considered as the best table Tananarive and we regret that you are left unhappy.

“One of the best restaurants ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

I adored the charming old fashioned style of the restaurant, which was full of antique objects and which made of that place a warm and welcoming place to spend a good time in couple or with friends.

The cuisine is perfect, tasty and elegantly presented when the dishes come to your table.

“The best food in Tana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

The interior is like a marine museum. You will be otpically entertained as you wait for your food and drinks to arrive, which wont be too long too. Within walking distance from Hotel Colbert and Du Louvre
