La Ferme d'Ivato

International in Ivato

If you fancy a long, languid lunch surrounded by fragrant plants and greenery, this is the place to come. La Ferme d'Ivato is, as its name suggests, a working farm (animals, fruit and vegetables). It's certified organic and the on-site restaurant serves the farm's delicious products, cooked with a Madagascan twist of spices and flavours.

Guests get the chance to visit the farm after lunch. The only downsides are the rather dear fixed-price menu and the location, about 6km beyond the airport, down a rough dirt road. You'll need your own vehicle; otherwise the farm can arrange a transfer from the airport (Ar60,000 for up to four people).
