We stumbled on this little bistro in Noumea's Latin Quarter by chance while wandering the streets looking for somewhere for dinner. Chez Toto was about half full when we arrived, with reserved labels on most of the vacant tables. Although we didn't have a booking, we were quickly shown to a table and had the menu and specials explained in... More

What a wonderful surprise to find this delicious French bistro in otherwise dismal downtown Noumea! My husband and I followed the suggestion of our Celebrity Solstice concierge for lunch at Chez Toto, a short walk from port. We started with a glass of chilled crisp champagne and duck pate with the best French bread I've eaten since Paris. We each... More

Last it,e we are here it was hot inside and oppresive. I had this great saucisse but partner thought it was average but I loved it. Went back this trip and OMG it was sensational. Foie gras terrine and very good escargot to start. Canard Margaux with the best berry compote and partner had gorgeous Mahi Mahi. So good in... More

Another of my favourites. Located in the Latin Quarter, Chez Toto is a friendly local restaurant. The chef owns the restaurant along with his wife, the maitre de and together they are fantastic! A must when I am in Noumea.

Chez Toto is a charming little French-style bistro in the Latin Quarter of downtown Noumea. It’s in a great location if you’re staying in the city, but isn’t too far from Anse Vata if you take a bus or taxi. The menu is all in French, so we struggled a bit, but the lovely waitress (who we think is also... More

I wish I had found Chez Toto earlier in our trip. The atmosphere took me back to a little bistro in Paris. The menu is authentic and the wine choice excellent. The restaurant is full of locals, which is always a good sign. Everything is in French but the owner happily explains the dishes in English. A fantastic experience at... More

Well known restaurant located in Latin Quarter, walking distance neighborhood from the downtown of Noumea. Restaurant is small, but with a bit of that French brasserie character. Service had few hiccups but nothing to dramatize about. Food is nice, although be careful if you order snails. I guess it wasn't my lucky day, as even though they were served with... More

If you feel home sick from a french bistro this is the place to go. Do not expect french sophistication, you are in a bistro. Glassware is variable but the setting is true to it's genre. The wine list is surprisingly shorth. The portions are Vegas style so share !
