On this evening they offered a special, Taste of New Orleans: fried catfish, shrimp bisque, seafood gumbo, red beans & rice. Wow. Lots of... read more

I have been to Camellia's two times now. Both times I had good food and great service. This last visit I had the Seafood Gumbo and a Chef Salad. Some of the rice in the gumbo was under cooked so I exchanged it for the Craw-fish Etouffe, which was delicious. The salad was excellent. Both time the service was excellent.

Food is great. Was a little expensive but very good. Bread pudding is awesome! Will definitely go back.

Can't review the food because we never got to see the menu but the service was terrible. We were told to sit anywhere & no one ever came. 5 minutes later other customers came in and were greeted with a straw & menu. I won't be returning.

This is the fourth time in 5 years that I have dined at this café and it did not disappoint. My wife and I had the Crawfish Etouffe and split a shrimp Poboy. The first time I visited this place I had the Crawfish Ettouffe and it was a first time experience, one never to be forgotten it was so... More

I found the food ok, but the prices are high. Red beans and rice $9.95 is a rip off. The beans were nothing to write home about. There are too many other places at eat in Slidell that are far cheaper and better

There roast beef po boy was amazing here!! The gravy and i had it dressed as well was out of this world. I wish I could have brought 5 home with me from vacation but I don't think they would have made the 7 hour trip.

I'm a fan of the food, and I love the funky vibe. Sometimes meet friends who live in Lacombe here for lunch. Holy cow, was the service slow this time. I guess they figured we weren't in a hurry.
