Love a french cake - you'll love this place

Hands down best vanilla slice I've ever eaten! The rest of the cakes were divine, but the vanilla slice is a memory I will never forget!

Never disappointed with this place! A small menu of 'what's good right now' with plenty of scope to knock off your 'five fruits and vege' for the day with great meat and seafood! Prices are - honestly - cheap compared to some other places in town yet this is arguably the best food!

We had lunch. Not a good place for little kids as our 7 year old struggled. The adults, however, loved the food! The salads and the aubergines were colourful and simply exploded in the mouth and the size was pretty good and we felt full! The taste was amazing. Clearly, one of the better places we have eaten at in... More

One of the 6 top ranked Noumea restaurants we dined and can understand it's high ranking however maybe not it's No.1 spot. The wait staff attentive and professional and but not overly friendly. Menu limited but varied - no entrees, just 4 mains and 4 deserts. Wine list varied and across a range of prices. Our meals arrived in a... More

Beautiful restaurant, i went for my birthday and it was amazing. The service was very good, the waitress was polite and not making us wait for too long to order or to pickup the plates when we were done. The food was exquisite. Reasonable proportions for the price. Really worth a try if you're in nouméa!!

We had our last meal in Noumea at this great restaurant. It has a very limited blackboard menu of 5 main courses (and a separate blackboard menu for dessert, brought later). We chose one main to share for entree, and then each had a main (no dessert). All 3 dishes chosen were excellent. Extraordinary that such a good restaurant is... More

So the reviews were great and we'd eaten here before and had our best meal last year in noumea. Beef for me and fish for her. Best beef in a bourguignon style ever. This time we both had fish and whilst mine a little dry it had a beautiful crust and the salad was superb. Partner had seafood ravioli and... More
