Much better at the other Le Fare down the road at Palm Beach 4. Service NON EXISTANT. My 3rd time here now and the staff DO NOT provide... More

Opted for the BBQ buffet lunch. Didn't expect myself to be full immediately due to lots of servings of bread and sides, therefore quite regretted later on taking the buffet lunch and should have gone ala carte instead. Nevertheless, the restaurant offers scenic views of Anse Vata Bay which is perfect for a laid back lunch. The restaurant is open... More

The burgers were good, wasn't a fan our their juice as it was really watered down, but I found that to be the same as most restaurants in Noumea. The service was good and staff very friendly.

Close to the water , very happy ambiance , good service , co-ordination among staff could improve. Food is good , bit expensive for what you get. Received very good service from Laura and Jessika. Staff must learn more English. Likewise may I suggest to anyone visiting Noumea to learn some French , it will help a long way. It... More

The spot is right by the beach and you can watch kitsurfers while you eat!!! I might not recommend this place for vegans although is has maybe a vegetarian option or two, but for others the food is very decent, a bit on the expensive side but i suppose you pay for the location! Not my favorite place for food... More

We enjoyed a few nice, cold drinks and snacks here while staying in hotel Le Meridien, and you cannot beat the location; next to the beach with great views of the sea. Service is good, considering they are covering a large area outside and people coming/going all the time. We only ate snacks, so we cannot comment on any of... More

The three of us each had a main course - delivious local fish / excellent 'steak-frites' - with a green side salad. We also each had a dessert comprised of a small coffee with several yummy mini-desserts. All together, including a glass of wine, the three meals totalled approximately $200 AUD. Not cheap but worth the view. Apart from the... More

Great lunch here with much more choice for a vegetarian than I had in our accommodation. Set right on the beach. Excellent service and ambience.

One of the most sought-after beachside restaurants in Nouméa, Le Faré Restaurant is the ultimate place to an al fresco lunch with a magnificent view of the beautiful Anse Vata bay its beaches and windsurfers. Inspired by traditional Melanesian style architecture with its sculpted pillars and thatched roof, Le Faré is an open-air space where you can lie back on a lounge chair and sip a freshly-squeezed tropical juice until sunset. It is also the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing salad, fresh grilled fish or a sumptuous BBQ lunch on the deck overlooking the beach.
