We dined here for Christmas lunch and arrived a little late but we're still welcomed warmly by the restaurant staff. We were staying at the le meridian which closed its fine dining restaurant for the day. After the mixed reviews we were a bit hesitant especially regarding the price. But what a fantastic surprise this restaurant was! Prices were by no means over the top. $120 aus for a degastation menu? I would have to call that more than reasonable for Aussie standards. In fact, a bargain! The degustation menu had generous portions and there was a beautiful surprise salmon mousse at the start of the meal and a raspberry sorbet before the main that we're to die for. The crab salad was one of my partners favourite dishes. We are thinking of going back just so he can try it one more time before we leave. The main, a filet of beef was accompanied by beautifully turned veg, definitely some French chef skills here!. We powered through a cheese course, which we probably didn't need in our overhead state but enjoyed anyway. Refreshing mix of fruit and nuts to accompany it. The dessert............ I can't put this in words...... I am not a desert person. BUT the degustation menu comes with 5 samples of the desert menu. It was amazing.... I can't say I liked all of them but the ones I liked I LOVED. We are hoping to go back before we leave to but we'll just order the dishes we fell in love with from our first visit.
Definitely give this place a go, especially if you need somewhere for a special occasion or if it's your first time to Noumea because this is the most enjoyable meal we had so far on our trip & was magnificent by Aus standards.
I do recognise why people would say service is slow. Service totes weren't placed on your lap, we poured our own wine eventually after it was decantered and when we went to pay the waiter couldn't work the cash register very well. But you're on island time & it's all about chillaxing - isn't it and the staff were still polite and completely lovely.
I would have given this 4.5 if I could
