We didn't get to eat out much in Noumea because our stay included Sunday and Monday when a lot of restaurants are closed but I really wanted to enjoy at least one French restaurant. We ate here because of all the great reviews. We left pretty underwhelmed. It was nice-ish but nothing to write home about. My duck shepherd's pie could have been any meat quite frankly and it was way over-salted. The salad was limp saturated in dressing. My companion's meal was at least fresher being tuna tartare but that was about it. There wasn't a lot of ambience as there was only one other family there during lunch. We were full at least when we left and the staff were friendly. It did put me off dining in other French restaurants if La Chaumiere is supposed to be up there.
