“Oasis in the middle of Tana chaos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

When we need to get out of the heat and hustle & bustle of Tana city centre, head for Cafe de la Gare! In the beautiful old train station and with a garden for outdoor seating, this please offers great food and wonderful location. The selection of homemade ice cream is a must!

“Good location but nothing special for food... always the same menu :-(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Very good location, good restaurant for all the occasion... lunch, dinner, friend, business, wife, lover, children.. very nice garden and startegic position in down town.. Wi-Fi working well, very good security if you have the car or moto.. Staff medium level but ok in any case.. Only negative aspect, is always the same menu.. and the dessert is poor, first of all the ice cream that is very bad preserved. In any case, value for money ok.

Lovely setting, great food and good prices. Food that you can trust wont make you ill. And that's got to be a bonus in Madagascar! :)

“Good service, free transfer from/to hotel at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

The restaurant looks great. It's easy to find because it's on main railway station.
The menu is mostly french, the food is tasty. Would recommend combination of chocolate mousse and brownies for desert. There is also a night club above the restaurant.
Service is very good and the best thing about this restaurant is free of charge transfer from hotel to the restaurant and back to hotel after dinner. I would recommend taking such an offer because it is spooky to walk around that neighbourhood during the night - no public lighting, no manhole covers on the streets, etc.
