I went to the bateau ivre many many times for the 2 years i lived in Tamatave. I personally ate there twice and never ordered food from there ever after that. I totally dislike the quality of the food . If you dont have high standart for restaurent you will find this place nice i assume.
The location is great for sure.
The company i use to work for done their christmas dinner party at the bateau ivre.
We had our own chef and food brought to the bateau ivre to make sure it follow a certain safety/quality standart.
