This restaurant specialised in Créole cuisine is located in the trendy area of Isoraka. Customers use to be mostly Malagasy business men and staff from the nearby embassies. Nice Malagasy food in a relaxed and informal atmosphere! You´ll definitely want to taste one of the impressive “rhums arranges” of the menu.

Surely one of most expensive restaurants in Madagascar, though low pricing compared to Western standards. The restaurant has a nice interior setting and prepares delicious French specialities. Dress well for the occasion.

New and stylish gorgeous little bar with dining room where very French influenced Malagasy meals are prepared. The excellent food and nice atmosphere make this little place a good value!

Le Be
Avenue Grand Didier 72, Isoraka
This brand new local has become the last trend place in Tana. The minimalist decoration and intime atmosphere turns it an ideal place for a romantic dinner. The food is very good and the huge bar serves fantastic long drinks.

La table d´hotes de Mariette
 Rue Georges V 1, Faravohitra
Tel: +261 20 22 216 02  
For excellent and tasteful Malagasy cuisine do not miss this unique place. Mariette Andrianjaka runs the probably best restaurant for top-quality local food, which was inaugurated at a time where  Malagasy cuisine could not compete with French-style. If you want to eat here, we really encourage you to reserve, since it is not rare that guests are kept on a waiting list for some weeks.

Probably you will not expect to enjoy good quality Italian food in Madagascar, but if you´re taste needs just some rest from the a little bit heavy French and Malagasy cuisine this place will definitely match your expectations. The restaurant is located on the side on a steep hill overlooking the street way down below. In the evening, tables are lit only by candles. The lasagne dish is very recommendable.

Excellent management and excellent French food at bargain prices. Also one of the few places in the city where can get a beer on draft. The crottin de Tulear (warm goat cheese) is highly recommended. There is a lovely outdoor terrace. The interior is cute, with antiques and a fireplace.
