We ate here twice and had a pizza both times. The service was great, staff were extremely friendly and were willing and able to speak English after our bad attempts at French!! Pizza was great and Domaine Agnes a good bottle of French red - what more could we want!! Only problem as with all restaurants in Noumea is the smoking - people light up anywhere and everywhere - most unpleasant when eating. Only way to avoid is to eat inside and this is not ideal when the weather is hot and one wants to take advantage of the views.

Staff could speak English which was very helpful and the decor and atmosphere was great.
But the food! Oh, what did we do wrong to be so disappointed?
I had the double bacon Arizona burger (19 francs) and my brother had a mixed grill (31 francs).
Most backyard barbecue cooks could turn out far superior meals.
The burger was bland to the point I wondered if I actually was eating meat or some kind of "meat-inspired" substitute.
I even bombed it with Tabasco and still couldn't get that delicious burger taste I was craving.
One of the steaks in the mixed grill was delicious, the other was so sinewy it was inedible.
It came with two sausages which looked raw inside so we dodged them.
The three sauces (mushroom, blue cheese and mustard) were superb and the service was quick and friendly, but it wasn't enough to salvage Duke's in our minds.
We won't be back.

We had a pleasant meal here on a Saturday night.

Portions are big and the food is fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is lively and we liked the funky colourful decor. Service was quick and friendly and we had no problems making ourselves understood even though we don’t speak French.

The location is superb, being right in the heart of the Baie des Citrons dining strip. We were surprised at just how busy and vibrant the whole place was on a Saturday night.

Prices are about average for Noumea which means paying around 5-6,000 francs for two (equiv about $60-$70 Aust).

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to Noumea travellers and it will be first on our list of dining options next time we’re in town.

Le Dukes, is one of the restaraunts I will always go back to.
If you sit outside, there will always be a lovely view with the beach across the road.
The staff are lovely, and the group of us who dine regularly in Noumea would recommend any of the seafood on the menu, especially any of the prawn dishes.

The burgers are always plentyflul. Pizza is spot on. My favorite is the tuna steak stuffed with Feta. The childrens meals are great. Pizza in a shape, burgers in cardboard cut out to keep them amused. Would also recommend the Long Island Tea Cocktail.

The staff are relaxed and do look after you. Its a relaxed setting.
