Visited twice. Friendly young waiter was excellent. Knew his wine. Food was very good. Music was good,no complains.
The 2nd time we went, the Thursday, a French reggae band, called the Francofollies, came to perform. The club was packed but rocking with good vibes.
Will definitely visit them again.
Well done team Bodega.

We came expecting to have a great experience with a selection of tapas and good wines. Our expectations were not met. What we viewed on the website was not a true representation of what was available. I ordered a cotes du Rhône and then a Pinot noir and I swear they were both the same wine.

The food was non existent. The young waiter who was very attentive to start was nowhere to be seen for some time and then I realized he was also preparing food. We were not offered food and were pleased that we didn’t proceed down that path as I can only expect that we would be disappointed Perhaps the offering here is different on a Sunday night.

We can’t think of a better place for an evening meal. Situated over the water at the left end of Anse Vata, this is a perfect place for tapas and drinks while you watch the sun go down.

The tapas menu has enough to keep you interested and there’s pizza as well. We found that four tapas items were enough for two.

Service was excellent and the views superb.

One of 3 venues over water in anse vata. 2 min stroll from chateau Royal and le Meridien and 5 mins from Hilton la promenade. It shares the jetty with Le Roof - the farthest restaurant on the boardwalk which is pricey (AUD$40aud starters and AUD$52 mains sort of pricing) and who do dolphin/fish feeding, and there’s also XO club which is a bar halfway along the jetty. La bodega del mar is the first restaurant/bar just on the water’s edge. It’s also quite reasonably priced food - usually serves tapas and pizza. We went on a Thursday night in November and it was “American night”. The waiter ran through the special menu in English for us (hot dogs, chilli con carne and burgers ranging from 700 to 1000 francs which is about AUD $9.50-13 and quite amazing for noumea). They were good too! Classic cocktails are 1700 francs which is pricey but other bars in noumea have them at 2000 francs. And they’re strong cocktails everywhere we’ve been so far, so you don’t need many!
All in all a great night - planning to go back for sunset drinks!!

We loved this place and seems to be the most happening place in noumea most nights. They seem to have a slightly different night each night. Thursday night they had bingo which was both in English and French. Beers are 500 for a small one and 100 for a large one.

We stopped off here for a couple off TAPAS and a glass of wine.Red wine is 1300xpf which is $20.00 AUD each and the TAPAS are 900xpf each which is aboout $14.00 AUD each. Cost us $68.00 for a very small meal and a glass of red each. HINT: Buy your XPF from your bank before you go to Noumea because the exchange rate from the local money traders is very low.We got 65 xpf/dollar back home and the current rate in noumea is 50 xpf / dollar.Service is very good but they still allow smoking in the restaurants over here and we couldnt wait to get out as nearly every table had a plume of smoke coming from it. Overall enjoyed the food and wine but cost a fortune.

We went to Bodega twice in the two seperate times we were in Noumea. This place is fun, some of the staff are friendly - some aren’t. They all tolerated our terrible French. One night there was live music. Pizzas have a nice base and aren’t too expensive. All in all worth a trip.

Gem of a location on pier. Great tapas style food, music & suitable for for kids, particularly early on the evening.

Love this bar! Full of locals but also tourists too - great live music, yummy drinks and great food and best of all, right on the water with a perfect view of the ocean for a sunset drink or two! Highly recommend!

we wandered in for a couple of drinks, wanting to hear the live music here two nights. Found the service efficient, the location spectacular, and everyone drunk. You've been warned!.
