A unique restaurant in Madagascar? It's definitely The Arrival, the first and only Oyster Bar from the island to taste the wonders of Malagasy seafood.
It is nestled at the end of a sloping paved street at the corner of Ambondrona, Andohalo and Ambohijatovo, near the Hotel Palissandre.
By taking a taxi, it is the district of Faravohitra. The race will cost you about 8,000 Ariary if you are in the city center, around 10,000 Ariary if you come from other districts around and around 20,000 A if you come from the outskirts of the city.
Typically inspired by French bistros, the restaurant offers a friendly atmosphere, in a warm setting made of wood and leather, with a touch of sea air.
Oysters recesses! But also what is iodized: shrimps, lobsters, fish, mussels, prawns, crabs etc. all the fruits of the Malagasy sea.
Purchased from local producers and flown three times a week from Fort Dauphin to Antananarivo, the restaurant guarantees you fresh and authentic products, respectful of local and nature.
Certainly lemony because it is the best wedding with seafood.
But L'Arrivage also offers revisited dishes from French cuisine: pot au feu seafood, duck breast with Malagasy spices, snails, zebu tartare with oysters, cheeses, etc.
A fairly extensive wine list is offered as an accompaniment to all of this. Do not hesitate to follow the recommendations of your hosts on this point.
Few people are aware but L'Arrivage also offers a takeaway service, a rare thing for seafood in Antananarivo.
A simple call and your oysters will be served on a tray, ready to be eaten.
The price of the sea leaflets differ according to their size and are worth between 45,000 and 110,000 Ar or between 12 and 28 €.
The dishes in formula are from 15,000 Ar only, less than 4 €.
The value for money has made the reputation of the establishment.
Arriving is open every day: from noon to 10 pm on weekdays, until 11 pm on weekends.
