Always good!

A substantial cocktail is all you need to warm up to the fried shrimp entree! I counted 32 shrimp and it came with a salad and bread pudding for dessert!

We had the oyster and the meatball po-boys and they were outstanding!! We also "tried" the turtle soup (recommended by a friend from Nawlins who said it's the best) but I guess we just aren't turtle people. Great atmosphere. We would definitely return and try the Trout Almondine next!!

The locals recommended that we try Mandina's. We were a group of about 20 in town for a business meeting. Even though it was a couple miles away from our French Quarter hotel, the weather was perfect, and it seemed like a good destination to walk to. For those not in the mood for a walk, there is a cable... More

The food was excellent, but the prices are more what I would pay for a more upscale experience. The service staff is really nice, and the place is really popular. Fresh seafood, does not disappoint.

Visited Mandina's with my wife on a Tuesday night(early). The food was very well cooked and delicious. Although we did not get an appetizer, I have to say their onion rings looked mighty good. My only advise is that their portions are very large. If you have no where to store a carry out, I recommend plate sharing.

A family run restaurant with that good old feel. Service and food were great. They have more than Italian food. I had corn-beef and cabbage and it was perfect. It isn't cheep but it's worth it.

We really enjoyed our meal at Mandina's. The portions are huge, so be ready to eat until you hurt or share a meal. The food was wonderful and the wait staff were great.

We visit Mandina's almost every time we travel to New Orleans. There are a number of neighborhood restaurants which exhibit the real New Orleans culture. Mandina's, very popular, is one of the most accessible; a great treat.
