    Sur la Plage

    This sand-floor restaurant offers the best of this stretch of coast – feet in the sand, grilled fish fresh off the boat, expertly mixed punches and cocktails – bliss! It also does huge plates of pasta and seafood grills.

    Chez Henriette et Richard

    So close to the water you could almost cast a fishing line from your table, this simple little open-sided eatery at the northern end of Ambola serves up simple Malagasy coastal cooking – fish, octopus and the like served with rice, beans and cold beer. Nice. Opening hours vary, but there's no need to book.

    Chez Freddy

    This excellent roadside place along the main track through town between the paved road and the beach does well-executed grilled seafood and some surprises, such as zebu in a Creole sauce. On Saturday night from 7.30pm, there's live traditional music, as well as an ample buffet (per person Ar30,000).
