We came here for a drink on a Saturday night- live music playing as well which was awesome. We had house wine for 750 CFP (about $10nzd) which we have found to be pretty... More

This place is perfect if you're looking for a fun date night or hang out with friends. The music is great, the tapas is yum, the ambience is amazing. We were lucky we got a table next to the water. Loved this place.

This is a great location and one of the best venues on the water to simply have a drink in Noumea... Shame about La Roof being in the way and not offering the ability to watch the sunset with a drink... The table was sticky, the team felt the need to put down the blinds while the sun was setting,...

Stopped by for a quick beer, ended up staying for tapas, great overwater location. Friendly staff, good beers and food, we're a family of four and would recommend for a snack!

One of best places to go out to for a fun evening located in Anse Vata. A bar on the water and next to a nightclub called Pop light. Tapas there were excellent - my fav being the chicken and chorizo dish. Some nights they also play great RnB/top hits and it becomes a dancing club. Would definitely recommend this... More

they serve dinner, and sometime have bands playing. After 11pm always full of people. outside to smoke, the back is facing the ocean. With light under water makes a nice atmosphere. have a drink, dance and chat before crossing the bridge to the next club.
