We stopped for a coffee and read the dessert menu and couldn't resist. Vanilla cone with yummy filling, praline n caramel ice cream. One of best desserts I've ever had- beautifully presented and so yummy. The view of the fish swimming below us was amazing, great experience!

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals of ravioli with chicken and seared tuna for mains and hubby's lemon tart was different without elaborating and my chocolate brownie was ok, but dry.

We had seen Le Roof from the beach during our last quick visit to Noumea and decided that when we next visit we had to give it a try. When we visited Noumea again for a quick afternoon/evening stop whilst on a cruise it was our chance. Although we made a reservation prior to boarding the ship they didn't have... More

Excellent staff, great food, would highly recommend if visiting Noumea. Was not very busy the night we were there, but it was low season. Good food and wine recommendations

Despite reading some negative reviews we looked at the menu and decided to try The Roof, we are so glad we did. The food was 10/10 and the service was efficient. The position over the water was beautiful ne if we had had more time we would have come back for dinner

the food was great the position is great. Service lets it down. Had the fish of the day which was one of the best meals we have had in New Caledonia. The wine list is good. $$$

Le Roof's location and concept are great but that is where the positives stop. We thought we would try Le Roof one night as it was close to our hotel well that was a mistake. My wife, daughter and I had one of the worst times we have had at a restaurant. We asked to modify the children's menu as... More

Unfortunately my partner and I booked dinner here for New Year's Eve, despite fears that it would be too touristy and overpriced - as the atmosphere, proximity to our accommodation and the festivities on the beach seemed promising. We should have trusted our initial instinct...the food was by far the worst we have had during our stay, and triple the... More

this poor try to be classy ambience, this chief who has obviously misunderstood what 5 star cooking is about (well, that's what they charge for)... niece ambience, but you're better off to enjoy a meal at your hotel.
