Staying at the meridian, had lunch in the resort as the prices are similar to outside. Entrecote was delicious - medium rare and perfectly done! The steak tartare was beautiful too. Washed down with the local "Number 1" beer. the only annoyance was the cats prowling around hope to get some food other than that service was good and portions... More

Great spot to take a break from your sunning, to have a drink and casual meal on a lovely sheltered deck overlooking the beautiful beach. Good, large servings of café style food such as burgers, fish and chips, salads, with delicious desserts. Full bar service of beers, wines, spirits, cocktails and non- alcoholic drinks. Service sometimes could have been improved.... More

I came here for lunch after walking along the beach to reach Le Meridian. Given a great beach side table and English menu. Ordered the chicken Caesar salad and a red wine and didn't have to wait long to be served. Salad was nice, prices similar to all noumea restaurants, quite pricey! But it was one of the cheaper options.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunches at this Hotel restaurant right on the beach. The poisson cru was so generous and deliscious as was the mini desserts on offer. The Mahi Mahi sandwich was also a favourite with my husband and I.

Had a beautiful lunch whilst staying at the resort. Staff were very attentive, quick service and delicious food. We had the prawn Caesar salad and the lamb, both were excellent.

Liike their other restaurants this place lets down the hotel. We never received everything we ordered ever and I am sure the stock is from the buffet

We'd been in Noumea for a couple of days and had seen this cafe style eatery right opposite the beach. Great location. No menu displayed outside, so we didn't stop there. On day 3, I went inside wanting to look at a menu and asked the waitress for the English version. She did speak English, but tried to seat us... More

One of the most sought-after beachside restaurants in Nouméa, Le Faré Restaurant is the ultimate place to an al fresco lunch with a magnificent view of the beautiful Anse Vata bay its beaches and windsurfers. Inspired by traditional Melanesian style architecture with its sculpted pillars and thatched roof, Le Faré is an open-air space where you can lie back on a lounge chair and sip a freshly-squeezed tropical juice until sunset. It is also the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing salad, fresh grilled fish or a sumptuous BBQ lunch on the deck overlooking the beach.
