A nice place with a nice garden. Slightly posh and overpriced.

Thank Laurent K

average food quality, yet enjoyed the music played during the jazz Festival (Madajazzcar) and after. Very fashionable place at the moment. Wait and see!

As others have said, the location alongside Antananarivo's colonial era railway station is superb - just dont expect to see many trains!. The interior is also beautifully decorated to give the ambience of that era, and a friendly owner will explain with enthusiasm the concept to you if you care to ask. Service is efficient, food is good without being outstanding (stick to staples such as zebu steaks and you wont go wrong), and wine list is more than decent. Prices are ok and when they have live music it creates a really cool atmosphere.
