I came to Noumea for work for 2 weeks. After struggling to find decent food in overpriced and unimaginative tourist spots, I found this gem not far from my hotel. And I’m so glad I did.
I have been twice. The first night I had the fish dish. As some other posts say, there was a lot on the plate (perhaps too much) and a lot going on in terms of elements but the fish was cooked perfectly and the accompanying sides were all delicious.
Tonight I’m half way through the beef. It’s so delicious, rustic, tender and flavoursome that I had to put down my fork (that’s all you’ll need to eat it!) to write this review.
Again, there’s probably a little too much going on on the plate with 5 or 6 sides all rubbing shoulders but wow, the beef. So tender. Matched with a delicious Bordeaux. I’m already anticipating what I’ll order when I return later in the week.
I haven’t tried a dessert (yet) but the menu looks inviting (even though it’s all in French and I only speak a little). The staff are super friendly and attentive without being overbearing.
If you’re in the area you should def give it a go. Certainly beats the food at the (rather swanky) hotel I’m staying at. Yum.
