It is a nice cafe style restaurant in a very nice location, unfortunately alot of the things that we wanted to order were missing that day. However we did enjoy the food :)

The food was very enjoyable but the service is very poor. Waitress did not seem to take notes of what was ordered. My friend asked for some local drink which comes in an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version but the waitress did not get the non. Later we asked for some butter with the bread but the latter never materialised. The... More

A nice spot away from the chaos of Tana. Service was frustratingly slow and the food was rather average.

Unfortunately, having had great experiences at other restaurants in the city, I found the food rather underwhelming. The foie gras poêlé was a tad undercooked. The gratin de crabe was overly oily and I bit... More

Had a really great lunch. Nice easy venue with good atmosphere. Puddings particularly good - chocolate soufflé was great.

An old railroad station converted to a restaurant. The toilets feel like you are in the train. The place has very good food and drinks. They have a daily happy hour, I think it was 2 for 1 drinks so go try the mojito or caipirinha. They were both good. The restaurant area was very clean and elegant. It seemed... More

We went there after walking a few hours visiting Tana. The garden is so nice and relaxing that you never want to leave! It seems that you are somewhere else. Food is very nice, service very good. More expensive that majority of places in Tana but it is worthy. The place is like and old train (toilets are in a... More

For the price this was a good restaurant. The service was excellent and the location affords a nice respite fro the heat of the day and the traffic and vibe of Tana.
