“Good food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

It seemed odd to go to the railway station to find a good restaurant, but that's what it was. We had sandwiches and burgers, but the coffee was the best. There's a nice outdoor area if the weather's good. The only downside is they allow smoking inside the restaurant. Not cool.

“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.
