I have four times the occasion to dine at Buffet du Jardin: the meals take time to come but food is delicious. The ambient lighting is soft and the gardenlike decoration evokes holidays at the seaside.

The food was average, good portions but value for money so don't expect haute cuisine Loved the atmosphere, lots of old French men waiting to pick up you Malagasy girls what more could you want as entertainment. Nice outside eating area and free wifi.
