good food but certainly not in the top 10 in Tana. Prices also went up lately but not the quality. Place is however now invaded by old french expat community. Cigarette smoke and atmosphere ruins all the food experience. I will not go back.

I went with my colleagues one evening after a workshop in Tana. The food was quite good in general but I couldn't really enjoy it due to the smoke of cigarretes.
