Top three restaurant in Natchitoches

For our family, Merci Beaucoup best captures the spirit of Louisiana cuisine while providing consistently good quality. Everything is tasty. Baked potato served open face covered in crawfish étouffée is really tasty. Only issue with M.B. Is that they are not open in the evenings for dinner... read more

Hubby and I were looking for a good ride on our motorcycles and decided on Natchitoches. We ate at here and thought it was good. While talking with my husband, we both decided that it was good, but not great. We are glad we tried it, but will probably not come back. Hubby hat the meat pies an I had... More

Crab St. Denis A breaded and deep-fried crab cake topped with crawfish etouffee. Served with a garden salad and hot French bread We ordered the above meal and OMG uf that's what they call a crab cake the chef needs to go back to culinary school. No crab whatsoever and it was more like fried mush. Etouffee was terrible, too... More

Merci Beaucoup is open for lunch only. That's sad, it could be the most popular dinner spot in town.

We just spent a weekend in Natchitoches for our anniversary and ended up eating at Merci Beaucoup twice. The first time I had the red beans & sausage over rice with a cup of coffee and bread pudding, my husband just had coffee and the pudding. I cannot explain how amazing such a simple meal was! Our waitress was perfect,... More

This is a must but is only open for noon, The potato special and bread pudding are out of this world, but everything our table of four had was above and beyond in flavor and amount of food. Our friend had the Angus demon burger and said it was exceptional

I had lunch here while visiting my daughter. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was comfortable. We had seafood kickers which were very tasty. I had Fried Catfish over rice smothered with Crawfish Étouffée, sooooooo good! My daughter had a Black eyed pea dish. She did say she liked hers but mine was better. I would recommend eating here....

crab cakes were good and the bread pudding was amazing! The rest of the food was just alright. There is no real ambience and our service was poor. If I do go back it will be for the bread. Pudding alone.

My best friend from high-school and I were traveling to Natchitoches and I wanted to treat her to a nice lunch, so I looked on Trip Advisor and Merci Beaucoup was number one and had good reviews, so we went for it. It was a little out of the way, but my maps app got us there, just in time,... More
