  • Great for scenic views
  • Good for special occasions

Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant’s design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It’s in this unique setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It’s an experience not to be soon forgotten.

The 15-mile drive from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You’ll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century-old oak trees. The restaurant’s Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was.

Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffée, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Seafood Platters and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant, will tempt even the most timid diner.

We look forward to your visit.

    Overall we enjoyed everything we ate. The turtle soup is top notch! However, the wine bottle service needs improvement.

    The food was great 👍🏼 The service not good. The waitress Jessica was not friendly. We had to ask for refills & she brought me a hot as you know what beer 🍺 i will definitely go back but i refuse to have Jessica as my waitress. It was my birthday and i was so excited to go out and have dinner to enjoy myself it wasn’t a good experience. My husband & i was disappointed ☹️

    We had a party of 6 celebrating my brother's birthday. The service and food were excellent, plus we had a great view of the bayou. We had a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back.

    The exterior was lovely and blended in favorably with landscaping . Upon my entering I was welcomed with a friendly smile. I was escorted to my reserved table. The chair was pulled out for me. My server identified herself and what would I like to drink. I was served quickly. My server asked if would like to start my order with an appetizer? I said please and with in five minutes my appetizer was served and it was delicious. As I was nearly finished my appetizer my server came back and asked if I was ready to order the entrée. I said yes please and I ordered the Boudin Stuffed Chicken. My server filled my drink and said my meal would be here in ten minutes . My meal was delivered on time and the presentation was very appealing . My tastebuds danced with joy as it delicious as the aroma made my nose this is a 5 star meal. I was well pleased with the whole visit and I will revisit and tell my family and friends to come also.
