Something different for a change, everywhere else you get the same french dishes, here at least some other choices

We were satisfied. But the company was much better than the food. I would go back though, and I do not mind suggesting it to others.

My daughter had an unfortunate experience here as an Indian-style chicken raita included a chicken foot and a other pieces of chicken had bones in them. Altogether uneatable. The restaurant replaced it with a plain spaghetti, however I feel that I should warn people that you cannot be too sure what will come out of the kitchen....

Really liked the food here. The wait staff was friendly and even spoke some English. We ate here two nights and enjoyed our food both nights. Nothing fancy, but perfect if you want good, safe, reasonably-priced food.

Principally the place is nice, but the two Indian dishes we ordered were really bad and not at all authentic.

The restaurant has a very nice shady outdoor area, perfect for watching the world go by as you eat. It is also a very short walk away from Boulevard Gallieni and the "Tsena Cociagy" touristy craft market. There is a good selection on the lunch menu with lots of seafood as well as pizza, omelettes etc. We plumped for a... More

Prices were increased recently so now it is one of the most expensive restaurants in Toliara, but it is still the only place you can get a good curry!! Also does good pizza, and stocks ice cream from the Gelateria for pudding.

We had lunch and dinner here. We actually liked the curry dish more than the pizza. Free wifi was cool. There was ice cream for dessert as well!
