"Zanzibar" is our favourite place to eat out when we go to Noumea. The atmosphere is quite nice with a restaurant divided into different rooms (+ a small balcony) and decorated in the colonial style. The menu is varied and dishes are inspired by different...More

Lovely place if your looking to try something new. The food was very unusual to me, but as a true traveler and tripadvisor I crave for things that make me raise a eyebrow and take my interest. Its hard to discribe the food... Id say...More
