Three couples for dinner. We Couldn't believe the atmosphere, so authentic, just as described in other reviews, and the wonderful staff so helpful for English speakers. The entrees were huge, the frois gras amazing! We struggled to eat our main courses, and all enjoyed the cuisine and wine. Such a friendly place..The chef came out to talk to to the... More

On the specials menu Chez Toto had tripe . It had been a long time since I had really good tripe , This was as good as I have ever had in France or Vietnam . It was our last night in New Caledonia after a 3 week stay and was the best meal we had there.

We had lunch here. For starters, I had the fois gras and my wife and the escargot. Both were perfect. I had the chicken with morels and it was perfect. My wife had the quenelles, which she'd never tried before. She wasn't too keen on them but that was her palate and not the preparation. She gave full marks to... More

Like a typical bistro in Paris, this restaurant serves classic and delicious French food. I had the escargot, rabbit and creme brûlée. They were all wonderful. If you let yourself go just a bit, you'd think you were in France.

We were wandering looking for a place to have lunch and found Chez Toto. We were welcomed in, seated, and the menu discussed. We wanted a French experience so chose the degustation menu complete with escargots. Wine served at a perfect temperature with the ice bucket left on the side of the table. Food was delicious, staff were very friendly,... More

came for lunch, a party of 4. A French bistro with black & white square floor tiles, posters on the walls. Felt like something out of the 1960's. Yes it's "authentic" but my wife couldn't eat her fried duck (too dry & salty), my tuna dish was just a large slab of very lightly grilled tuna, with a heavy gravy... More

The atmosphere was invitingly French with the walls decorated with French posters etc. we would recommend this restaurant if you were in the city of Nomea. Please make sure you check the opening hours as they are restricted to a couple... More
