“A great option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

My husband, daughter (1) and I had lunch here, and really enjoyed our experience. The staff were quite friendly, the food was good and the location and view was really nice too. It wasnt cheap tho at approx $NZ85 between 2 of us.

“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Based on what we read on Tripadvisor chose to eat at L'astrolabe during our recent visit to Noumea. Great decor, service and food. Only opens for bookings at 6pm with dining from 7pm. Pity about other patrons smoking in the restaurant - for non smokers a real turn off!

“Great food, indifferent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

The food was great - I had the veal with mushroom sauce and my friend had snapper fillets. We agreed the food was presented beautifully with the obligatory dribble bits across the plate making it look wonderful. And it tasted wonderful. However the service was at times somewhat indifferent...seems to be the NC way at times. Some might call it relaxed.
