Mad Zebu

Top choice international

in Belo-sur-Tsiribihina

The ‘crazy zebu’ is the most incongruous find in dusty Belo, possibly in all Madagascar. Dishes seem to come straight out of a Michelin-starred restaurant (the chef trained in prestigious kitchens in Madagascar and Europe), with exquisite creations such as pan-fried shin of zebu, prawn medallions, or snapper fillet with peanuts, risotto and coconut sauce, all elaborately presented.

Vegetarian options are available too. Save room for dessert. Everyone travelling between Morondava and the Parc National Bemaraha stops here and many companies reserve tables in advance – we suggest you do likewise or be prepared to wait. Around 11.30am is the lunchtime peak.
