Neither a restaurant or coffee shop, just a top quality chocolaterie. I'm a genuine chocoholic with expensive tastes and I love this place. Part of the charm is the mystery of the contents. There is a menu of fillings to help you chose, but you don't get one to take away, so you either try to remember what you chose, or just take each chocolate as a new experience and try to work out what is in it! I love the fruit centres, so fresh and delicious. They are really creative too - one of the best I've tried is sweet potato - not a usual filling, but really tasty. OK, Belguim and Switzerland may have better Master Chocolatiers, but not at this price! Roberts' chocolates are better than most mainstream/high street chocolates in Europe and you will struggle to find a better chocolate in Africa. I know, I've tried!!! The pastries are fabulous too - just as good - if not better - than those in Patisserie Colbert.

Not sure how it got on the listing of restaurants, as it is neither a restaurant or even a coffee shop. I would move it to "Things to Do in Tana". Yes, the chocolates are pretty good, but it does not compare to Belgian or Swiss. You can pack your own box - simply point to what you want and it makes a perfect souvenir to bring back from Madagascar.

If you are in Antananarivo, you must stop at "La Chocolaterie" or you will regret it forever! Their chocolate selection is to die for. I didn't know which one to pick up, really! At the end, I just built a couple of variety packs, taking away all the doubts!
They also have a beautiful pastry selection, chocolate bars and much, much more.
All these made with local cocoa and a great French touch.
The price is reasonable, the presentation is inviting and the staff pretty kind, but not too patient. Of course, the language barrier wasn't helpful at all. (You will find out by yourself that very few Malagasy are able to speak English).
If you are a chocolate lover, stop in one of these wonderful stores!
