The good reviews on Trip Advisor are well deserved. This is a simple little cafe in a lovely neighbourhood outside of downtown Noumea. The menu is limited and presented on a blackboard. Four Choices! All great. French comfort food- cassoulets predominate. The veal main was spectacular! So tender and tasty! A fine wine list. Great service. It is not fancy... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Noumea... probably because it's one of the tourist hotspot. Great food, great customer service. If you don't speak or understand French, ask them for a description and they will describe it for you as much detail as possible. However, don't ask for recommendations because they will definitely recommend every single item in... More

This is a lovely cafe tucked away from the main tourist area. Menu changes regularly and everything we tried was delicious! Make sure to save room for dessert. Reservations are recommended.

I was invited to the restaurant once and I was the only Carnivore at the table. Much to my surprise I couldn't eat any of their dishes. But the vegetarian dishes were very copious and to watch the others delight in their green dishes so it must be really good.

I very rarely give a "terrible" review but I feel compelled to do so for this restaurant. I was dining alone and had a reservation. When I arrived, they didn't seem to want to seat me as I was only one person (note that the reservation was made for one person). I was to be seated at a table at... More

We had lunch and a couple of days later dinner here. It was the same menu of four options, but they were all amazing. The deserts are great too. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed and it seemed like a place locals hung out.

We were blown away with the fabulous lunch we were served. We ordered a mixed salad with different pork and ham charcuterie and the piece de resistance was the citron marlin sashimi on a beautiful salad with a gazpacho soup on the side. The meal was outstanding and we have booked to dine again this week.
