About the restaurant

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.

We drove from out of town, and the table was ready when we arrived. We had excellent service, and the food outstanding. We had a great time, in a very relaxing and fun atmosphere. Will certainly return on our next visit to New Orleans.

Our pink haired waitress had terrible service. She didn’t even greet us with her name. Maybe it just wasn’t her day! I’ve been to Flamingo A-Go-Go plenty of times & had never experienced such service as I did on April 1st. Needless to say, I didn’t even stay a whole hour bc her service was so trash. Also, I mistakenly left my sunglasses on the table, came back not even 10 whole minutes after leaving to see if I can retrieve them & they were gone. Low & behold, the hostess said our waitress was the one who cleared our table. Yet, she claimed she didn’t move them. The food & drinks are always great. I’ll definitely be back, but I’d like to never be served by Miss Pink Hair ever again!

We were very much looking forward to True Food Kitchen as they have a large selection of gluten free items as my wife has Celiac Disease. The food was only average at best, but the menu is large and maybe we didn't order the right thing. The service and ambiance were both great. We probably will try it again with different choices.
