Tables d’hotes have been multiplying in Noumea, as well as on Grande Terre and the islands. Often associated with homestay accommodations, they allow you to live like a Caledonian during your visit.
A table d’hote network
The ‘Welcome to the Farm’ network’s many members, all farmers, offer a visit combining the discovery of farm life, accommodations, and culinary delights. New Caledonian cuisine is largely based on local products.
The Deer Refuge table
Halfway between Koumac and Koné, the Deer Refuge is not your typical table d’hôte. Don’t miss out on the spectacular sunset over the plain with the lagoon in the background. From the Refuge itself, the panoramic 360° view is exceptional. Chantal will spoil you with the culinary preparations from her kitchen. She has no equal when it comes to venison, but she also makes her own bread, desserts and tasty salads with garden produce. In a true bush atmosphere, Stephan will also offer you several choice rums; his specialty.
