Just like Bourbon Street cookin !

Wonderful Cajun food, so easy to tell the owners know how to cook Cajun. Everything was wonderful and friendly. Will make sure to stop back on next trip to Hermosa.

I felt good being able to see cocking in front of me. A wide variety of food after a long walk by Hermosa beach. We were 6 persons and we sampled different dishes and all were delicious. The staff, especially the chef were extremely friendly and kind.

Wanted to try something different. Great little restaurant with very nice staff. Nice menu selection with reasonable prices. I can recommend the frog legs to start and then the Blackened Cajun Catfish.

We started with the flash fried oysters and the crabcakes for appetizers. We split a full order of the gumbo which was huge and delicious. Finished with the bread pudding split 4 ways. Food was all delicious, prices reasonable and free corkage. The next table had a large rack of ribs that I want to try. We'll be back soon.

Had a wonderful meal here, shrimp stuffed chicken with a shrimp sauce and spicey gumbo for my huband. The service was good and Queenie came over to say hello. She was amazed at how much food we ate, no boxing up for us it was that good

Having lived in New Orleans when I see a restaurant that say "New Orleans Food" in LA it's NEVER GOOD! But this time OMG the food, atmosphere, ambiance, & staff are soooo New Orleans. It's like walking into Big Mamas house for Sunday dinner any day of the week to the point where when you're finished eating you have the... More

Amazing Blackened Chicken Po-Boy! Make sure to get is fully dressed with a side of honey covered sweet potato fries! Sandy is the owner and prepares all the meals herself, she's great! You'll most likely be served by Chase who is just as cool and will recommend a great dish for you. The gumbo is also fantastic but the Blacked... More

What a cozy, cool little Cajun cafe tucked away on Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach! I love the ambiance, lighting and art. The waiter (friend of the owner) is such a genuinely nice mid-westerner (from Chicago). We had gumbo, hush puppies and Cajun blackened chicken. Yummm!! A nice kick to it! And I have to say, the lemon ginger hot... More

Overall an excellent taste of the south. The portions are large and you will have plenty to take home. The wait time for seating and service may take some time but DO NOT take that as a bad, it's a small very homely feel and your food is served made to order piping hot!!
