Food of Madagascar at Constance Tsarabanjina

One of the most lasting memories of a holiday are its flavours and nowhere is this more true than on the remote, exclusive Madagascan island of Tsarabanjina.

Flavours of Madagascar

Breathe in the scents of Constance Tsarabanjina and you’ll catch hints of cloves, vanilla, black pepper and nutmeg which make up the foundation of Malagasy cuisine.

Local produce at Tsarabanjina

We select the very best produce daily from the local market on Nosy Bé including the freshest spices, fruits and vegetables – luscious pineapples, mangoes and lime, plump pumpkins and vibrantly coloured sweet potatoes.

The fish our chefs prepare is caught off our shores by fishermen from the neighbouring island of Mitsio. Fishing with nets off traditional wooden pirogues, they use the same techniques that Malagasy fishermen have used for hundreds of years.

Fish for your own dinner

It is even possible to have your own pirogue fishing experience with our chefs on hand back on dry land to prepare and cook your very own catch-of-the-day.

For a unique culinary experience you could try lobster caught in the water just beyond your villa, prepared and grilled before your eyes and served to a secluded table for two on the rocks beside the ocean.
