Opposite lemon beach, this was a lovely surprise. I was able to walk in without a booking. Service was very friendly and the food was light yet very tasty and authentic. I would recommend the creme brûlée for dessert. One of the best I've had.

We were on a cruise which stopped off in Noumea and the shuttle bus dropped us in front of a strip of restaurants. We had no idea of exchange rates, prices etc but this restaurant seemed slightly quieter than the rest (which were full of other cruise passengers). The galettes were delicious, filling and very very nice. The price was a bit steep (about $120 for 2 galettes, one large beer, one coffee and a half bottle of rose) but as we had no idea what the exchange rate was, we were happy to just sit down and eat a gorgeous meal. The service was friendly and they were patient with our lack of French. All in all a reasonably expensive meal but worth it as it was delicious!

first cruise to Noumea found this place by random chance. Two subsequent cruises and we have sought it out to once again enjoy the experience. Very limited English is part of the fun, lots of pointing, smiles and patience. will return as part of next pacific cruise

My husband and I felt like some crepes one night and visited this restaurant. What a revelation it turned out to be!

The staff were all so attentive and friendly.

The crepes were delicious. They were packed and piled high with ingredients and incredible value for the price.

The location was lovely too just near the Casa Del Sol holiday apartments and across the road from Baie Des Citrons beach.

There are about 14 restaurants in and around that strip at Baie Des Citrons. This restaurants was one of our favourites.

Do yourselves a favour and dine here. You won't regret it.

Owner chef provides exquisite food in a small outdoor setting which is enclosed and kept warm at night with heaters. Food was fantastic. He went the extra mile to create a dish to cater for my allergies. Very impressed with all aspects
