The decor is legitimate Cajun pieces. The food is to die for and I would definitely recommend getting any of the seafood poboys or the gumbo! Want a taste of Louisiana? Go to Bouttes! I enjoy my visit there everytime! Take it from a born and raised Louisiana girl, this is the place to go!

Had a very nice meal of fried catfish and seafood gumbo. A jewel off the beaten path. Prices are fair and service friendly.

Asked a police officer for a recommendation after spending a good part of the day at Barataria. Couldn't have been happier. Everything we ate was great. Small town atmosphere with incredible food!

Boutte's is a small café in Lafitte LA. It was very crowded when we were there, but the wait was worth it. The shrimp sampler plate was huge! and frog leg plate was jumpin' with them. It is just a few miles north of Airboat Adventures soooo I suggest doing both. It will be well worth your time.

This small restaurant has great southern hospitality and the authenticity of bayou home cooked food. We enjoyed our lunch of shrimp, gumbo and salad. We were glad we stopped here for lunch.

Wife had a meat patty(like a tenderized meat patty) with a brown gravy that had to have been powdered.She was not impressed. I had... More

We came down from New Orleans to explore the area. It was a Sunday and Boutte's was the only place open for a few miles around. The service was friendly and welcoming. The food was very good--we had the frog's legs, an oyster po'boy, and fried catfish. All we excellent.
