We believe this is the best restaurant in Noumea .. the food is excellent, the service is excellent and it was just a great experience eating here. The menu is limited to 4 mains and 4 desserts, with one special on the board .. but it was not limited in any other way. We were a group of four and... More

Came to this cafe for lunch. Great service no booking required. Short but seasonal fresh menu. Best food I ate in noumea by a long shot.

This restaurant has a very French style and is quite casual and very popular. The restaurants strategy is to have a limited menu of 5 to 6 main dishes and also deserts depending on what is very fresh for that week. The menu changes each week. The result is a creative gourmet experience that is very pleasant.

We were guided here by the trip advisor ranking and had an excellent lunch there 3 days ago. It was a 1000xpf taxi from our hotel on ansa vata beach, where we found a bustling restaurant. Our family of 2 adults and 2 young kids were seated straight away as we had a booking. The menu is obviously all in... More

After being in Noumea for a week we had come to expect very little English from the front of house... on this occasion though it meant we were largely ignored until we actively waved over staff. We were left with a blackboard with 4 dishes written in French. It was not explained to us that they were not the specials... More

We had a tip before leaving for Noumea to check out this place. I am sooo pleased we did. We had dinner and the food was fresh, delicious and not pricey. Its hard being in Noumea and trying to find a decent feed for a decent price. This place will appease that. The wait staff speak very little french so... More

A friendly place, for a nice dinner. A trendy place in Noumea, serving good chief "cuisine" made with fresh seasonal products from the local market.

Often Hard to get a table so booking in advance is essential. The Menu is always changing and there is always a surprise to try. Great selection of wine.

I was dining alone. It was past 1:00pm. The restaurant was busy but no matter - I was happy to wait. I was told to sit at the bar and after 20 minutes I realised that the host had forgotten about me. I showed myself and was shown to a table immediately. Then came the good stuff. The tuna tartar... More
