Additionally, in order to accommodate all of our guests who are waiting to be seated, we are only able to seat your party once everyone has arrived. Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. Cafe Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Cafe Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.

“Charming atmosphere! delicious food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is charming, casual and has a perfect New Orleans atmosphere The food is delicious! There are plenty of vegetable options This has more of a brunch/lunch feel; but would be great for a lw key dinner great for adults Service is a 'relaxed pace'. Even if you eat indoors all tables have nice outdoor views

“Nice restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We ate here recently on a Friday night. It was an enjoyable meal but nothing spectacular.

The restaurant has a beautiful courtyard but on this night it was quite chilly so we chose to eat indoors. Even there the downstairs tables are all open to a draft from the open door so it isn't warm on a cold night.

The food was nice. We had a soup and the gumbo for starters. For mains the pork was nice but a little overcooked.

Overall a nice meal but there are lots of good options in New Orleans

“Great outdoor lunch spot and more!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Food/drinks were fantastic and the outdoor courtyard made for a great atmosphere. Prices may seem a little high, but you get what you pay for. Food servings are ample, and the lunch sandwiches are HUGE! Enjoy this quiet little gem of NO!

“An excellent french meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We were introduced to Cafe Amelie by friends who live in the French Quarter and really enjoyed the visit. The patio and interior are charming and the service was excellent. We had a bread basket brought to the table with plenty of butter, but the rolls and corn muffins were not hot. The rolls were good, but would have been better warm. I had a lamb shank with fresh pasta that was really terrific. The beet salad was also excellent. My husband had the duck, which he also enjoyed. The Mardi Gras doberge cake for dessert was good - but very rich. I would advise sharing it. We will certainly return and on a nice day we hope to eat in the patio and enjoy the atmosphere outside.
