Beautiful white sandy beach at the front of restaurant....just gorgeous and if you are coming in from your boat you can leave your dingy right in front on the sand. The restaurant had sold out of beer on tap but cans were still available. Entree included snails, which apparently were nice, I had the crispy prawns which were ok too.... More

We had dinner here, it was an all you can eat buffet. We watched as the doors opened at 7, to a waiting crowd, who then swarmed over the food like seagulls. Quite the site. When we did get in to the food, it was pleasant enough, although at a high price but considering the location understandable.

Snacks at bar = awful. Even the chips seemed to be fried in oil older than my grandmother. Dinner was OK - enjoyed dessert especially. Had a pre-order crayfish - small, and overcooked - but enjoyed. One of the kids had fresh fish which was good. Breakfast - don't bother!!!

It's very simple. You go there to have a lobster but it's not cheap: about 65USD/pers but then you are sitting on benches, your feet in the sand just in front of one of the most amazing beach of the world...

We decided to go for lunch, the only meal they do, away from Le Meridien. By the time we got there it was raining lightly, so luckily they have some covered seating. We had ordered two lobster meals and two fish meals. The fish meals were fresh and delightful, but the lobster, half and three half what we in Australia... More

A very special meal. We selected lobster- local and very fresh, a good choice! Our meal was delicious & plentiful. Limited choice for beverages. Amazing view from the outdoor tables. Our host was very friendly and helpful. A relaxed, uique lunch experience. Note: Cash only and must book in advance.

We had lobster we booked the day before. One comment: great food! Friendly people. Nice beach, stunning view, stunning beach! Difficult to ask for more... We lobster a few more times during our stay in New Caledonia, nothing as good as this one!

My husband and I had lunch at Kou-gny during our stay on Ile des Pins in August 2015. We were staying at Le Meridien, and wanted a change from resort meals. This restaurant was recommended to us by the reception staff as a nearby option. Getting to the restaurant is really easy from Le Meridien - it's about a 5-10min... More

We had a fantastic lobster lunch with a glass of wine, feet in the sand, a gentle breeze and magnificent view. The included starter was excellent (you would not guess from it's appearance) too. There may have been included dessert as part of a plat du jour but this is not clear as only main course listed on blackboard menu... More
