The presentation of the food was wonderful and the unusual mix of side dishes interesting but overall we were a little disappointed by the taste of the food. By reading the menu, all in French, it sounded like it was going to be fantastic but...More

We went there for lunch and it was absolutely delicious! Portions are plentiful and the passion fruit cheesecake is a must try. Menu is in French but the manager was very helpful and did his best to translate it into English for us.

The cafe is relaxed, with an informal atmosphere, but the food is exceptional. Not too expensive. The produce is fresh and local. The menu consists of a handful of mains and desserts, with ingredients dictated by the season. It was very good.

We had some great pastries here and bought a nice loaf too. There were a lot of choices and I’m going to have to walk a lot of them off now I’m home again.

Nice food, good waiters but no English menu - but don't worry the waiter can show you pictures and explain in english. Seems very popular as it was a full house. I guess this is one of the best restaurants in Noumea.

Unique concept (only 4-5 mains on offer plus desserts which change weekly) brilliantly executed. Surprisingly large meals prepared sublimely. Bookings essential.
