  • ThON STEAK: The best tuna and ox !

    by thonsteak Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is opposite the beach (Baie des Citrons), Steakhouse with amazing prices and quality. It's the best steak you will ever have with french fries.
    Also a great sashimi (tuna) with his special sauce.

    French food

    by hunwagner Written Jul 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you might expect, there is a great selection of delicious French cuisine available in New Caledonia - what a treat after the Anglo-Saxon introduced culinary horrors in the rest of the region!
    As you might also expect, it all comes at a price - good French restaurants are out of reach of budget travellers, though cheaper ones run by Vietnamese in Noumea are more affordable.
    Also affordable are the fantastic sandwiches and French bakery products sold throughout urban areas, and the ubiquitous, cheap baguettes and paté available in every grocery store in New Caledonia are a self-catering budget traveller's saviour.

    Kanak food

    by hunwagner Written Jul 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Traditional Kanak food is similar to that of the rest of the South Pacific.
    It is based on tubers and local veggies, with meat and seafood if available, and is prepared in an earth-oven. The resulting dish is called bougna. Unfortunately, it is only prepared for special occassions, or - at a very high price - for tourists on order.

    Everyday Kanak food has been somewhat influenced by French cuisine and makes use of rice and baguettes. This is also delicious, but is rarely offered for sale - the excellent and very cheap selection on this photo was sold by Kanak women at the Mwata Festival in Pouébo.

    Hotel Ibis Restaurant: Seafood and Snails

    by Kate-Me Written Apr 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We only ate out at the restaurant a couple of times (just because it was conveniently attached to our hotel)

    Favorite Dish: I can't remember what I had, just that I wasn't brave enough to try the escargot (snails) though one of my companions was.

    In Noumea check out Le Saint Herbert, in Bourail 'El Kantara Hotel'
    Le Saint Herbert - atmosphere was great, looking over Coconut Square in Noumea.. it's a favourite with the locals
    Hotel El Kantara had the friendliest owners I've ever met.... this when I could barely get by with french

    Favorite Dish: Le Saint Herbert restaurant (not to be confused with the bistro connected to the hotel - which is much more expensive!!) - have great french dishs and italian dishes..
    El Kantara is in the middle of cattle country - their pepper steaks or crevettes (prawns) areb the best I've ever tasted...

    The food in New Caledonia is amazing but, sadly, it is somewhat expensive -- given where you are and the food. Most (or at least a lot) of the food for New Caledonia must be shipped in (from Australia and so on) so prices are a bit high. Other than that -- it is a tropical feast everyday!!
    In New Caledonia, it is not necessary to speak French but it is appreciated. Many people understand English but it should not be expected.?@Whenever you can, using the little French that you know will be greatly appreciated. So....en francais s'il vous plait!!

    Favorite Dish: Fruit, fruit, and more fruit!!
