I was told by several colleagues that this was a "must" in Tana. Made it to lunch, and ordered the chicken with sauce "a la vanille" as was recommended. As someone else said, the sauce was quite tasty but the chicken was very tough - spoiled the effect. The salad I ordered with it was fine - nothing special, just lettuce with a few sparce onions and tomato slices.

We were there a bit after the lunch rush, so it was not crowded. The staff was fine, but not again nothing over the top. There were several of the mature ex-pat male/young Malagasy female couples, which always makes me a bit uncomfortable.

All in all I was quite underwhelmed.

Had a fun dinner with a large group- called ahead to reserve table and they accommodated us very well. Several had the zebu steak, which was quite good. Several ordered vanilla chicken: sauce was tasty but chicken was tough/rubbery. The Camembert cheese looked delicious. Interesting decor.

This place was busy at lunch time. You could have the buffet or a la carte. We chose the latter. I had the baked brie starter (very good) and a salad (ok). They have a small off street parking area (very handy on this narrow street). Great old pictures of Tana on the walls. I've been there though, can't really think of a reason to go back.

A nice restruant in Antananarivo with a good menu and a pleasant relaxing ambience and offered good value for money. The food was very good as was the service but in truth i have eaten in better places in the city.
