I have been over the years many times to the Cafe de la Gare, although its has changed hands from the time it had opened It still has that unique decor and atmosphere. Gardens are fantastic and the location makes it easy to access and enjoyable for all occasions.

We went to cafe de la Gare after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant did not have the first 5 items we ordered from the menu and the staff including the manager spoke very little English which was extremely frustrating as my partner is a vegetarian.

After we settled on the order, my partner found a hair in her food! I would not recommend this restaurant.

Loved being in the old train station. Food was good but not excellent. Full of tourists here :-(. The “gambás” (giant shrimp) were good. I would go back

That was our last lunch in Madagascar after wonderful two-weeks excursion called "The Nature of a Lemur". The restaurant is situated in an old railway station compound now changed into a shopping center. The food was very tasty, the beer cold, the service fast and competent. The additional attraction was a toilet in an old, stylish coach wagon ;). The prices were not high and we'll remember this experience as one of the best meals on the island.
