We went early without reservations on a downtown art walk night offered on the second Saturday of the month. We were seated right away.

Jerry Young's restaurant is a Wonderful place in downtown Lafayette to eat. Open for lunch and supper, they serve tapas, entrees, and have some of the best cocktails in town. Every Tuesday at noon, a group of francophones meets in the side room for one of Lafayette's "french tables" - places locals and visitors alike meet to spend time together... More

I would have never went here on my own. But a friend took us there and it was fantastic. The food is amazing. The paella is worth the 45 min wait to make it. Excellent service and very friendly. There is a small for pay parking lot beside the building and only street parking. It's in a interesting neighborhood with... More

We walked in because my friend wanted to have tortilla (Spanish omelette), but unfortunately they didn't have... :( As a Spaniard and after several days on the road around Louisiana (finding the same food offerings pretty much everywhere - po-boys, shrimp, crawfish, wings...), I was curious to see how Spanish cuisine could fit into that taste. And I was greatly... More

Pamplona is our go-to for all special occasions. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are actually in Spain, the service is excellent, which is extra-important when you are having tapas. It is really nice to arrive early and sit at the bar and have a cocktail while you wait for your table. We have chosen Pamplona for special events... More
