Almost tables were reserved. We went to this restaurant without reservation. Fortunately, we could get a table! The meals and the dessert were wonderful. We enjoyed typical French style dish. It was very tasty. when I have a chance, I wanna go there again.

Au p'tit cafe has a choice of 4 main courses and 4 desserts. Although labelled a cafe, the quality of the food is of top restaurant quality, comparable to any of the best restaurants that we have ever been to. The yellow tuna dish was exceptional, being a mixture of France meets New Caledonia meets Thailand. The desserts - divine.... More

This is how food should be. Not the warmest staff but efficient and most importantly the food is tasty fresh and better than anything else I've had in Noumea. The restaurants here have been a great disappointment but this one was really good, and I like the concept, it works well. The head chef is obviously very talented as opposed... More

We visited this restaurant twice and both times found it superb. The staff are friendly and remembered us from our first visit. Excellent well priced food that made just about every other establishment in noumea seem 2nd rate. Would return again and again. A+++

Our visit to Au P'tit Cafe was definitely a culinary highlight of our stay in Noumea. The food was exquisite. A smallish menu but varied and interesting ... beautifully presented with great attention to detail. And it all tasted so so good! Probably the best Creme Brulee I have ever had. Would definitely go back ...

Four of us loved the atmosphere and the food. We thought it was one of the best dining experiences we have had recently. Each mouthful had great flavour. Loved the tiny tasters before the main meal and dessert. While most diners were French locals, we managed with our French and were given explanations of the menu in English when we... More
