The only redeeming feature of this place is that it provides free WiFi. We only used the place out of necessity to keep in contact with family in Europe.
You have to keep an eye on their measurements all the time. Trust me, the prices in New Caledonia mean you must savour every drop!
All of the above comments would be negated if there was a glimmer of friendliness from any staff. Sadly there wasn't. All had the expression they were on the way to a funeral.

Due to a particularity in local laws in New-Caledonia, the burglars and robbers are let out of prison after a very short period, and then they are set free to roam the streets all over the city.
The police cannot be present everywhere at every hour of course.
So watch you belongings !!!
Bear in mind that your hand purse or your handbag is of paramount interest for a certain category of the local youth in Noumea.
Or you may think also that this could be a way for you to meet the local youngsters, after all ...

After a long day of meetings, I wanted an unwind cocktail and a nibble without waiting for restaurants to reopen at 7.

Was intrigued to see that bar food available at l’etrave so ordered nachos and a margarita. Nachos (from Resto next door) were inedible. Cold glommy cheese, hardly any sour cream to be seen and the “chips” were some sort of cross between a cracker and a chip and just not pleasant. Would recommend management talks to food partner to lift game or don’t serve it ... puts a damper on the experience for sure. Margarita was ok but on the sour side. View excellent and wait staff friendly. I’d go back for a beer and the view but that’s it.

Last week at around 9 pm, we went in and there were maybe 12 people in the bar, so quite empty, and 4 bar staff.
Ordered drinks, a cocktail and a champagne. After 30 minutes waiting I went to the bar, yes ‘just coming’. Another 10 minutes later the cocktail arrived, and just a poorly made Margarita.
After another visit to the bar, my champagne arrived, it was warm.
We got up and left.
Never again.

A great place if you love cocktails. Sooo many to choose from in a nice air conditioned relaxed environment with fantastic views.

Hubby and I popped in here for a quick drink before heading out to dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the size and variety of drinks on offer, so much so that we returned a few nights later with our son and another couple. The first time we just had a beer each but the second we had a gin and topic. Mine came out with flat tonic so I sent it back, second time wasn’t much better, so I let it go! We didn’t eat there so I can’t comment on the food but it seemed to be very well populated!

A nice place to sit and enjoy watching the day turn into early evening. Lots of local people visit this bar and are obviously known by the staff. A wonderful array of cocktails if that is your interest, but quite pricey too. Great place to relax though and easy walking distance from many of the hotels in the area. Staff were attentive but not pushy.

Drinks are reasonably priced, staff are friendly, not too loud, good location and free wifi. Just what I was looking for in a regular hangout whilst staying at Anse Vata.

Nice place to have a drink, good setting. This creates certain expectations. Would therefore recommend to invest in a bit of training for the staff - general principles of table waiting.

Close to our Hotel, we chose to have pre-dinner drinks here every night of our stay in Noumea. We sat outside and relaxed whilst enjoying either a beer, wine or a cocktail before setting off for dinner.
