Restaurant has a nice interior setting. Personnally, I appreciate cosy places. Discreet and formal personnel, quite silent place for a restaurant though several tables were taken.
Good food. I know from my parents who used to go there quite often, that this is a place where one would go blindfolded! I ate there once but businessmen use to eat their for great deals celebrations.
There is a snack restaurant beside the upscale restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I tried grilled fished, yummy! and I had a dessert.
Sorry, I do not know for the price but one of most expensive restaurant in Madagascar though low pricing compared to European standards.
I just know this is best place for Malagasy food. Mariette Andrianjaka ("Madame Mariette" for Malagasy) had this great idea of running a restaurant dedicated to Malagasy cuisine when most of quality-food restaurants were of French style (Madagascar was an ex- French colony). Up to now, this is the place to go for Top- quality Malagasy cuisine.
When she opened this "table d'hôtes" decades ago, Malagasy cuisine hadn't had any "VRP" as the only quality restaurants were of French-style cuisine.
Of course, pricing is not the same as those "hotely gasy". Most expensive pricing as for Malagasy restaurant.
Reservations necessary since it is not unusual that you may be on a waiting for some weeks.
Favorite Dish: To learn about Malagasy cuisine (at least the one we cook in Antananarivo region), check this travelogue
Walked by here several times until we went in for a drink. Gorgeous little bar and dining room. Had a drink, then stayed for lunch. The food was very French influenced Malagasy, and a real treat. Best meal I had in Tana!
Favorite Dish: I just found my receipt for the lunch we had there. "Filet poisson ecaille" was $4 and "Mignon de poro" was $4, so prices are very reasonable. I paid $1.50 for a bottle of 1664 beer, imported from France. I'll bet it costs more in France! Gin and Tonic was $1.50 as well. Great food and nice atmosphere for these prices!!
Ate here about 5 times in two weeks. Food was a favorite with our group. Atmosphere is great, and the place is on the side on a steep hill and has one end open overlooking the street way down below. In the evening, place is lit only by candles. You will be impressed by the fine decor, nice china and that the bill will be very moderate.
Favorite Dish: Their Lasagne was a favorite with our group, most of us had it more than once.
Very European. Most main courses 27.000 MDG (4.35 USD).
Bill for 6 people (incl. 10% service): 394.000 MDG (63.56 USD) - main course, soft drinks, coffee and dessert
Favorite Dish: Filet de mérou grillé (a fish), côtes d'agneau grillées, Ile flottante, tarte au citron meringuée etc.
Very French, rather formal, great food in the top hotel of Antananarivo
Favorite Dish: Shrimp spring roll - Mango salad - variations on goose, including foie gras, dessert was a picturesque fantasy on coffee-flavoured variations for one and lavender icecream for the other.
Main course max. 48.000 MDG
Hotel de France has in the groundfloor a restaurant/cafe/bar, nice to sit there have a beer or coffee and watch people pasing by
Favorite Dish: Steak frites
Nice little french restaurant with a tiny garden and a bar, free wifi (most of the time working), french owner.
Favorite Dish: Entrecote grillee sauce echalottes with salade, frites and bread 13000 Ariary
