Smart restaurant, great service, fine food at top end prices. Enjoyed the variety on the menu ... Try the chef specials ... 'Frayed Ray' and 'curried parrot fish'. A good place to go to recalibrate your taste buds ... Especially if you have been to some disappointing restaurants in the previous few days.

Live entertainment from the opened up floor meant you could see the coral and fish below the restaurant while you ate, the night lights attracting the fish in close. Food was very a la carte. But also very nice. Recommended to go there in the evenings during the dark. Nice end to our holiday. Stiff spoke English so no communications... More

Le Roof is a modern french restaurant with something for all tastes. Sitting out over the water in Anse Vata, there is even a cutout inside the restaurant giving practical every table a waterside view. It is a little on the pricy side, but so is the rest of the island. The wine list is impressive but exorbitantly priced. The... More

You just dine here. The setting and atmosphere is amazing. The resturant is set out in the ocean and the floors are open and you can see over the deck if you done outside. We saw lots of fish and a school of sharks. Heaps of excitement. The decor is great. Service is fantastic, staff were just lovely. The food... More

On first impression....location is amazing along a very well maintained jetty over crystal water with lights showcasing 10 giant fish that look like mahi mahi!! The interior looks new and the excitement of having an open floor to see the fish swimming past is a real crowd pleaser. The staff are as outstanding as the decor. Sadly the food and... More

Le Roof is a unique dining experience. If one is in the tourist beach area of Noumea you really can't afford to miss this experience . Good food and a wonderful; wine list and absolutely superior service but admittedly a bit pricey . Go at night with the lights on the ocean , with dog fish and others swirling about... More

The Le Roof restaurant is located literally over the bay of "l'Anse Vata" Its definitely a landmark in Noumea & impossible to miss. We spotted this restaurant as we were driving to our hotel on arriving into Noumea. I said to my hubby "lets go there tonight it looks amazing ". Luckily; we were staying at the Le Chateau Royale...

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.
