I can say : a good service. Food was good and probably we will visit that restorant one more time. Zebu steak is soft and medium done. Not the best I ever tried,but I may recommend.

Probably the nicest restaurant in Ambatoloaka, in terms of building/seating and food choices and presentation. Also possibly the most expensive. (Everything basically 20,000 Ar and up.) The service was really great, one waitress used English with us (though we're used to using Malagasy at restaurants,...More
