We visit Noumea regularly, and always make a point of having at least one meal at La Chaumiere. We are never disappointed. It's a large restaurant in the heart of the Latin quarter of downtown Noumea, with a very interesting and well patronised quick lunch and takeaway service in the patio around the main entrance. The food is always interesting... More

We enjoyed the food here so much, we returned for a second lunch in our week-long stay at Noumea. Sure it was La Chaumiere in West Melbourne in a past life (22 years ago?). Staff were attentive and kept busy - quite a large restaurant, with different areas, like a casual quick lunch area at the front of the restaurant,... More

Many restaurants in Noumea seem to think that bistro food is what people want. However, as we wanted to try French style food it was difficult to find until we came here. Working through the menu, each course was delicious. Sauces and ingredients were excellent and varied and the tastes were wonderfully French. Portion sizes were good and the price... More

This is a smallish, somewhat unpretentious restaurant on Rue Du Dr Guegan in the Latin Quarter of Nouméa. It's very popular with the local lunch time crowd and with good reason. It serves both light and traditional French food with a South Seas twist. The food is very reasonably priced for Nouméa and the portions are quite generous. The drinks... More

I read good reviews before about this place and without even looking for it came across the little side street this place is in - not far from the Museum of New Caledonia. So, if you take a wonder through town starting at the main square, to the cathedral and then towards the museum of New Caledonia and the markets... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while exploring the Latin quarter. Friendly service and absolutely delicious food! One of our best meals in Noumea!!! We had the option of a set 2 or 3 course lunch which was a great idea and very reasonably priced for Noumea. The dessert was amazing and I would go again just for that. Highly recommend!

The place is very nice in itself, the whole decoration is very elegant and people are nice enough. But the food I had great expectations for was just okay. I mean it was certainly acceptable but way overpriced.

Open on a Monday when many restaurants are closed! Really lovely food and great value with their set menus where you can choose 1 course 2 courses or 3 courses with a great range of dishes. Highly recommend this as it is half the price of the hotels and I would say better than most hotel cafes. Also a nice... More
