We were personally greeted by the restaurant owners, Robert and Joselita, and warmly welcomed in and shown to our table. As the only one in my party not to speak French, they immediately made me feel at ease, attempting to speak English to me, which was greatly appreciated. The menu, only available in French, was translated for me by my... More

After reading reviews, we worked out how to get the 20 Bus into the suburbs to try this for lunch. The place was simple and the chef was friendly. We asked for the plat du jour and we were pointed to the blackboard: Beef or Fish. We both went for the sole and a glass of house wine. The restaurant... More

We were for the day in Noumea and found this little gem on our quest for some authentic food. I had the prawns with banana and it was to die for. Absolutely recommend this place.

This small, lovely restaurant is warm and welcoming. The owners are gorgeous, they are a couple who make every diner welcome by their personal attention. The food is rich and very French, the portions, generous. We had a lovely night out.

The couple who runs the restaurant welcomed us with warmth and gave us so much attention at the table, they were amazing. The food was out of this world - fois gras, duck, entrecote, ris de veau...everything on the menu is excellent. You can't go wrong here. Call to reserve weeks in advance as they book fast.

It is rare that you just ENJOY going out to lunch. The restaurant is small and quaint, but oozing with warmth from the lovely waitress Eladie, Chef and his friendly... More

Oh wow, what an awesome expérience! I like great food, great company and a comfortable atmosphère. This place has it because the chef Robert and his wife are gorgeous people with an obvious passion for what they do and for making people happy. The food is by far the best I would suggest not just in Noumea but by world... More
