Centrally located near the Presidential palace. The place is amazing full of colonial antiques. There are unbelievable (old and new) cars in the courtyard. The service is old style and the food is one of the best you can find in Madagascar !

It's not that expensive by international standards but it is quite pricey by local standards. If you are doing a full multi-course meal then I think that $25-30 should cover each person easily enough.
