Noumea has excellent restaurants specialising in French and international cuisine as well as seafood. There are some great new cafes in the city centre, plus plenty of options out at Baie des Citrons and Anse Vata.

Baie des Citrons

The electric strip at Baie des Citrons has an oft-changing line-up of restaurants clamouring to be noticed: Italian, seafood, steak – you name it. Wander along, join all the other people soaking up the atmosphere, enjoy a drink or two, then pick your spot. The recommended Baie des Citrons drinking establishments usually serve good food too.
