I read reviews on all Noumea restaurants and decided on this one as it is listed as #1. The food was good but not spectacular. There are no menus only a blackboard menu offering 4 choices. I had a beautiful veal dish which was the pick of meals at our table. The restaurant is quite humble and quaint. We enjoyed... More

We went to this place after looking on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The lamb dish had by my husband was cooked perfectly and the groper dish I had was beautiful and light, just right for a hot summer evening. For dessert I had the famous cheesecake which was nice and my husband has the brownie which was... More

What a wonderful experience! This was my favourite restaurant in Noumea, and I will remember our evening there fondly for some time. The maître-dame and his staff were very friendly, patient and professional. The cooks in the kitchen go about their tasks in a calm and meticulous manner, and turn out dishes that look and taste extraordinary. The menu is... More

A very lovely cafe in the trendy bay areas down in Noumea. Although the menu only features four mains and four desserts, it makes you feel like eating everything (check out their FB page "AUPTITCAFENC" to get timely updates)! Servings are generous and staff friendly. You get wonderful locally sourced produce and seafood cooked with flair at reasonable price. Dishes... More

We were lucky enough to reserve a table for a Friday evening at short notice - whilst we had intended a visit we hadn't properly investigated the opening hours, so consider ourselves very fortunate (if you're on a restricted schedule we suggest you book in advance). Wonderful setting, and with a helpful waiter to fill in the gaps of our... More

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
