Good lunch

Lunch here was good, service was efficient and prompt and the food was very good. Menu had a very nice selection of local favorites mixed with old standards. Pricing was reasonable.

Ate here last night after running into a waitress that works there in Walgreens and asking her honest opinion of it. She spoke so happily and highly of it and recommended the sampler with red beans and rice (wonderfully spicy!), gumbo (really good) and jambalaya (not bad) and the fried catfish (magnificent!- not greasy at all, light and flaky and...

Really good food and alot of it. Friendly and fast service and our waitress was very informative when we had questions. My husband and son had the Mufallata and thought it was great. The fish sandwich is huge and could be shared by two. In fact just about everything we ate in NOLA could have been shared by two but... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant, the wine was good and cheap, just $5.00 a litre. They also had the best bread pudding in New Orleans

I am in love with New Orleans, everything about it has its own special charm. The food was very well done,(came here twice in our trip) enjoyed it both times. Café Maspero really hit it off with us!

It's hard to find good Calamari but Cafe Maspero knows how to do it right. It is fried to perfection...not chewy like some places and it's the bargain of the French Quarter...$11 for a plate full !!! I may or may not have gone twice. Ssssshhhhhh. Don't tell!

I ordered fried oysters. They had obviously not been cleaned. They was a piece of oyster shell on the batter and it cracked my tooth. I had to get a crown. Worst dining experience of my life!

Thomas B, General Manager at Cafe Maspero, responded to this review

Leo, Thank you for your review. I do hate to hear about your cracked tooth. I have checked with all of my managers and no one has knowledge of a guest reporting an object in the food. We do receive our oysters already shelled from a local supplier. I invite you to call me personally to discuss your experience. Thank... More

While we have visited New Orleans many times, this was the first time that we dined at Cafe Maspero. We each had the Roast Beef Poboys and they were delicious! We also were pleased to find the prices very reasonable! We'll be back!

We stopped at Cafe Maspero to eat after walking around the French Quarter one afternoon. It's a great place for sandwiches and salads. The muffaletta was very good and the sandwich is about $11
