Relais des Plateaux, Antananarivo, Madagascar

September 30, 2016

Relais de Plateaux Hotel and Restaurant is a convenient but pricey option near the Ivato International Airport (Antananarivo). The 10 minute transfer to and from the airport is included in the price.

The business traveler type rooms have all the expected amenities – tea and coffee service, water boiler, safe, hair dryer and minibar. The shower has plenty of hot with good water pressure. Wifi is available in the room albeit a slow connection.

The upscale restaurant is pricy for Madagascar but had an elegant vibe, welcome after our recent travels. Starters 12,000 ariary ($4USD), mains 20,000 to 30,000 ariary ($6-10USD).

We started with the onion soup

and the zebu carpaccio – the most tender zebu we’ve had to date.

For mains we tried the rock fish – an odd presentation with little deep fried fish packed around a fish head. Served with a vegetable medley it was nicely seasoned and tasty.

And the zebu steak bordelaise (red wine sauce) served with a potato mash.  I asked for medium rare and got a French medium rare, that is a little redder than what Americans would expect. Good quality piece of meat although somewhat chewy as zebu can be.
