we went as it looked promising...a back street and appeared to have charm.
However, the food was very disappoinitng. I had tuna pave( a tuna steak) which was edible, but not much more. No wine list. Very poor bread. Green beans and salad were ok.
Partner had snapper which was better,
do I recommned it?.no way

We looked forward to eat at this restaurant because it is being frequented by locals. The attendance was okay, but both our dishes were quite tasteless (lack of some spices). We had the beef and duck. We cannot recommend this place.

Good food, good service, and friendly staff. Decor a little dated. Menu has plenty of choice, and friendly, maternal proprietor takes a keen interest in her clients.

They say that Le Miretti Gascon is one of the oldest in Noumea and that family that started it are still running it. Locals recommend this place and I think that is because it reminds them of the past and the menu reflects traditional dishes.

This is one plce that is geared up for teh tourists with all staff speaking English and I suspect they market well to the cruise lines that would come from time to time.

The seafood was fresh and prepared simply. We enjoyed experience, it was a safe selection and the locals recommendation was endorsed.

Not the highlight of our stay in Noumea but you cant go to Au Petit Cafe every night. Voila!!

We recently stayed at the Ramada Plaza and at the end of our street was the Le Miretti restaurant which had been recommended to us by locals.

The restaurant owner spoke fabulous English as well as offering an English menu to diners.

My husband wanted to try a snail just for fun and rather than order a whole meal of snails and hate it they allowed him to try just one. He never did go back for more.

The seafood is so fresh, it is delivered daily and there is a wide range to choose from. I had the Sole in a lemon butter sauce and it was to die for.

The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. We would recommend the Fleur De Mer which was a French Rose.

We returned for a second time during the week because we enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much. On our second dining experience they had a local version of Moreton Bay Bugs on offer which were only caught that day. They were absolutely huge, my husband absolutely loved them!
