Nice experience

Stumbled upon this place just walking along the shore. Location is absolutely amazing over the water. While the food was very tasty and well presented, i don't think it justified the price tag. We had the oysters and beef carpaccio (oysters were aud$54 for a dozen!! But were large at least). Mains... read more

To save yourself some time, money and a rant about customer service, the short version of this is don't go here. The food was ok but massively overpriced. It's all about the location really, set over water with lights shining down to the fish feeding off the food you have thrown over the side. That's not really fair, the food... More

You feel like royalty here. Just the atmosphere, the view all around is just stunning. Seeing the reef sharks and even a couple dolphins just added to the experience. Being there at sunset, you just feel like you're in a dream. It does not feel like a real place. The service (as common in New Caledonia) was quite slow, but... More

We went there during our holiday in Noumea, simply because it is in such a fabulous location reaching out into the ocean. Very high class place with prices to match. Our food took almost an hour to arrive after we ordered - with one apology after about 30 minutes. When it came it looked spectacular, but my 'medium-rare' lamb had... More

We are regular travellers to New Caledonia - at least twice a year - and we have come to know most of the good restaurants very well. We have had some great experiences at Le Roof, which juts out over the lagoon from the Anse Vata beach, but something has gone very wrong with the quality of wait staff. We... More

Wow they really know how to destroy what started as a romantic evening. Possibly the nicest restaurant location in noumea, topped off with little reef sharks swimming just bellow you..... But let me assure you the even the reef sharks would not eat this food. Super super expensive 1 entree ( snail pie) and 1 prawn main meal ( 4... More

I just left this restaurant and it was by far, the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant anywhere EVER. We sat down at 7pm on the terrace over looking the water. So far so good, until it took them 30 mins to even come over and take our order. There were plenty of times that the wait staff... More

It's the best location in town without any doubt the set up and views are amazing, we asked if they accepted Australian dollars and they said yes. We waited for the staff to give us menus for a while and overall the service was not welcoming at all. It was almost $14 dollars for a Corona and the least expensive... More
